Guide book says VS 4b no stars, I'd agree with the concensus of VS 4c 2 stars. Two tricky sections and a bold feeling throughout.
Dave Richards - Lead O/S - 22/Aug/13 with Chris74

Good varied climb. Deffo needs a star or 2

Matt Bill Platypus - 2nd O/S - 19/Jun/13 with Simon

bailed off to left before final move due to heavy pack/fading light. one to come back and bag the lead. interesting climb. sure its a 5a in the book.

Interesting and challenging climb (for me!) that went well until the final mantel. Took one fall and then took the easier option of going up the left side. Needs a return visit..

Not too bad. Bit nervy on the traverse. Finish up the groove a bit undignified.
