great lead by Jack.
Paul Hy - 2nd O/S - 13/Jul/13 with Jack C

Nice climbing but not a clear line. I avoided the RH arete for the last moves but spoke to Greg Cooper who said I was on the correct line. Felt about E2 5a though or less.
Daniel Heath - Solo O/S - 20/Apr/13

saffy - 2013

John Lewis - 2nd O/S - 24/Oct/10 with Adam

a route of two moves (both good). An awkward & worrying jump low down and an out of balance arete move just below the top, assuming you're supposed to stay on the right of the arete.
adam carless - TR O/S - 24/Oct/10 with John Lewis

Climbed the arete all the way but only felt about E2 5b - are yoiu supposed to finish on the RH face as I finished right around the overhanging part of the arete but then came back left onto the crest. The start of the route would be significantly harder if you were shorter than about 5'11
reg_measures - Lead O/S - 03/Mar/07 with Xav

The hardest moves are on the 'blank' wall at the top of the route, and I'm not certain that I took the correct route, perhaps straying too close to the arete...
Nick Smith - UKC - TR - Aug/98

too artificial at the top
