Awfull route
Wayne S - Lead - 29/Aug/15 with Dale

For those with a penchant for the myriad horrors of Peak Limestone, this route should be very appealing, despite the modest grade.
D Berry - 2nd O/S - 29/Aug/15 with Wayne S

Went left to the tree to top out rather than the tottering blocks. Then clawed up vertical grass to a good belay on a thread and two friends.

Easy glimbing. very blocky top half Belay options are zero! There is a nest of ravens close by at the fop too.
Ben T@ylor - Lead O/S - 06/Jun/13 with Alex wright

Easy warm up. Climb through an old ravens nest and past a hidden current one. By the time you reach it it's too late to go round. Zero safe belay options close by.

Hideous climb. I have just registered my vote for "Bag of ...."
rich_hw - Lead O/S - 13/May/12 with Graeme Hammond

didn't think this was too bad... a nice start and good bridging above allows you to avoid pulling on too many of the blocks. Grass bit is fine feet on solid rock one move up onto a grass ledge.

First lead on Limestone for ages. First half was excellent and well-protected however the second half squirms past some dubiously-balanced blocks. Grassy top-outs are not my favourite either :-/

Worrying blocks at the top.

Quite liked the route, but as with other routes here the steep grass at the top caused the most concern!
