Exciting traverse. Looked once then put another piece of gear in before committing. Interesting and memorable.

Started up the crack of Ann to the right, then finished traverse across Eliminate. A recommended variation!

Hidden - Lead rpt - 30/Mar/12

No pushover, the swing potential makes for scary moves on the traverse.

Dave led the first half and couldn't get his head round the traverse. belayed me up to the ledge and i tried it. dropped down and did the lower version. finishes easily. tough for a VS.

Took a fall on the matched move before the traverse... The traverse is hairy but fun, pumped out feet! need to work on technique
OliBangbala - 2nd dog - 2011 with Ben bangbala

Felt oddly hard, both the lower groove and the traverse are significantly trickier than they appear.
jkarran - Lead - 30/Oct/10 with Sarah

JYates - Lead O/S - 17/Oct/10 with Chris Wilson

Rachel Slater - Lead O/S - 28/Sep/10 with Chi Huo Cheng

Finished direct up the corner of Ann as it was the obvious line. Still felt like VS, HVS at a push. Worth seeking out.

Hidden - 2nd dog - 11/Aug/10

Good fun! The small holds on the traverse a ample - you have to 'use the force luke' with placing the feet. More of a country dancing shuffle! (I imagine!!)

Scary but fun climb. The traverse is bold and nervy with no protection and a certain deck out with a fall, but with careful and delicate climbing its not too hard!
tomvet2b - Lead O/S - 03/Mar/10 with Emma uni

Finished up the adjacent E1 rather than traversing - probably 5a but plenty of gear!

ColinD - 2nd - 13/Apr/09 with Nick Allsop

Nice climbing up groov and along traverse (which has good gear despite other comments - cam at start in upper break and small nut in lower break half way along), but let down by the rest, which is a constant struggle to make VSclimbign out of the arete, which is about E3, and the mod, which is a mod (if its supposed ot finish up the mod, the description should just say so, instead of finishe up the left arete of the mod, which basically just means use as few of the holds on the mod as you can - silly)
