Crappy start, very easy middle, hard end with a stretch which is a punishment for being short (might have missed something though): silly route in my opinion

Very trick start, took a few goes to get on it. Wasn't too happy on the first third as gear is very sparse, on balancey ledges. Quite enjoyed the top, needed a bit of thought though. Very exposed belay at the top!

chris_B - Lead - 16/Mar/12 with Hamish Dunn

a trick start for short climbers, fairly bold if you don't mess about fiddling with little dirty cracks trying to get something in or straying off line for side runners, the top is tricky for VS but the holds really are there, trust me and just go for it
DANBO - Lead rpt - 15/Mar/12

Scared myself faffing about looking for gear that wasn't there. 2/3 of the way up was the second crux, ok protection, but couldn't quite reach the essential hold so gave up and finished on Fingernail to the left.
MichaelGallimore - Lead dnf - 2012 with Pete

A disgusting adventure
agibb - Lead O/S - 15/Oct/11

intriguing start in the wet but too many soggy ledges should have used my B2s

ChrisB.19 - 2nd - 25/Aug/11 with Allan

Found the start very strenuous. Think I went a bit off route (to the left) after this. From the ledge, the move to get into the groove quite committing. No protection once in the groove.

The first 4 meters was fun, the rest was just rubbish. gear and cracks are very sparse, just horizontal shelves with not much inbetween. Wont be doing it again!

climbingchica - 2nd dog - 29/Apr/11

for a vs its insane, i followed the line in westen grit (might be my down fall) i only had two bits of gear in (no side runners) for 2/3 of the way climbing over big ledges off balance, but the top had a nice long crack/s with plenty of safe gear, not my cup of tea for the first 2/3 though!

Had a bit of a nightmare on this route. Very wandering, but the main problem was how green it was. It was covered in guff. It was really difficult to trust any foot placements. It freakerd me out a bit. Either way got up it but not my favourite climbing experience!!!

I never want to hear the words 'bold at the top' again! I came close to decking out on the ledge from the last move. Apart from being pretty dirty it's a nice route, but worth taking time to find the right holds!
