mrdigitaljedi - Lead O/S - 19/Jan/14 with stokienomad

Very green and slimey cracks
stokienomad - 2nd - 19/Jan/14 with Chris Kent

Hidden - 2nd - 17/Dec/13

Very easy for Severe. The BMC grade of HVD is more on the money. Easier than Karabiner Chimney and better pro than Lighthouse. Nice climb though.
Le Chevalier Mal Fet - Lead - 14/Aug/13 with Dan Chadfield

DanChad - 2nd O/S - 14/Aug/13 with Chris Murray

A bit wandering down low, but good and quite exposed at the top.

Double Knee Bar - Lead O/S - 20/May/10 with Iain

cooper leek - Lead O/S - 16/May/10 with dawn

Felt rather easier than Joiner. Also think current BMC grade of HVD is more correct.
D Berry - Solo O/S - 09/May/10

Great climb, undeserving of the encoaching vegetation. Another awkward start though!
