Karl Wooffindin - Lead O/S - 26/Aug/13 with Andrew Deacon

Good climbing, but very bold. Gear for the start, then nothing until it's all over. First route on grit this year, and a bit of a shock to the nervous system!
Andy Clarke - Lead O/S - 02/May/13 with Ralph

Hidden - Lead O/S - 17/Feb/13

Fairly straightforward little route, once off ground which is a little more strenuous/thought provoking.

not a very nice route, and very hard to protect
scotty h - 2nd β - 27/Mar/11 with Matt Snell

absolutly gearless! only one bit at head height to protect the slightly over hanging start and then nothing till a big hex in a wide crack VERy near the top which is basicly pointless
