Ray Sparks - AltLd - 05/Jun/14 with joe

Nice first pitch, sustained but all there. Second pitch up the corner tough with non-inspiring gear and semi loose rock. Continued up to roof and went out left, rather than going left earlier as might have been suggested by unclear description. Whole route would benefit from some more traffic.
Karlos - Lead O/S - 31/May/14 with Adam B, Alan H

Second pitch was tough, on poor loose holds with spaced and not very good gear. Bottled the step left onto the arete and escaped out rightwards.

A really good climb with interesting moves on both pitches and adequate protection
Steve Woollard - Lead - 18/Apr/14 with Samantha Roach

Not too much pro to be found. Fell off at 20ft and hit the deck. Nice view of the crag in rescue helicopter.

Hidden - Lead O/S - 09/May/12

split P1 into 2 pitches. Pitch 2 was a bit thin on protection.
Ian_Whitfield - AltLd O/S - 22/Jul/11 with Ken Colwell

P1 is bold, particularly at the crux. P2 is desperate (and bold) if you enter the groove directly (with a large, unstable looking block providing the only gear, and holds), and still bold and hard if you make a rising traverse from the right. Above is still bold, with very little worthwhile gear, and the step left onto the arete is difficult and contrived. Definitely felt like an HVS experience, and not a particularly good one.
