Hidden - Lead - 24/Aug/13

KeithAlexander - Lead O/S - 2012

Needed a bit of a clean on the way up, but not an excuse for not doing it without falls/rests. Good hard climbing. Pretty full-on for E1.
KeithAlexander - Lead dog - 10/Apr/11 with karinh, Graeme Diack

Good arm jams on the first half, but made a mess of the layback section - fell off, needed a tight rope and generally climbed very ungracefully :-(
karinh - 2nd dog - 10/Apr/11 with Graeme, KeithAlexander

Managed to avoid the nasty jams by lay backing, required a slight twist of the toe into the last metre or so of crack as it was pretty bit grimey
