I did it by mistake because I was doing Hallway to Kansas but when I was close to the tree I realised I have left my cams and hexes to I set up a top rope in the tree and abseil down. Then when I got back to the wall I climbed this one just to do something different.

riddle - Solo O/S - 12/Jul/14

very bold climbing and only found 2 gear placements, the 2nd of which was a size 3 nut which only went in halfway. very nice route but not for the faint hearted.

Had a good look then bottled it and downclimbed a few moves to step right and use the wide crack for my right hand. Did 2nd pitch of Halfway to Kansas to get off the ledge.
Stuart William - Solo dnf - 28/Jul/13

One piece of gear in break only, could've done with some micros. Exciting!

Got quite nervous on this. Doesn't look much from the ground, but very committing.

Measured at 12m; doesn't look it , though. E2 5b.
bpmclimb - TR rpt - 06/Apr/11 with Shunt

Seemed easier. Perhaps E2 5b

First ascent, after cleaning and shunting. Particularly thin 5c crux moves to reach the first gear at 7 metres, so I thought E3 was justified. On the other hand it could be E2 5b, and I'm just being a wimp.
