unpleasant, awkward, and requiring some on-route gardening
pimpy - Lead dog - 31/Aug/14 with Marcus Horgan

Lead pitches 1 & 3. The direct finish felt more like VS 5a.
Big Lee - AltLd O/S - 31/Aug/13 with Anna Kennedy

annak - AltLd O/S - 31/Aug/13 with Lee Harrison

Martin1973 - Lead - Oct/12

Good route, although I enjoyed the bottom ungraded pitch more than the second. I lead p1 and did the direct finish.
monsteratt - AltLd O/S - 25/Sep/11 with Max Edwards

Hidden - Lead O/S - Sep/11

A fine finish. Gets HVS in the definitive guide, but VS seems right, as there's decent gear if you dig around in the sea grass.
Andy Clarke - Lead O/S - 11/Sep/09 with Alex

Paul Clarke - AltLd - 2001 with Mike Lynch

With Ben Rodgers. Ben led first two pitches, and the direct finish. JP led pitches 3 & 4
