Hard 5+! Took me so long it was dark by the time I finished so no time for anyone else to try it. Much longer than the 36m stated - our 70m rope was a good 10 metres too short for the lower off.
Simon Caldwell - Lead rpt - 25/Mar/12

Only climbed up to stance at 14m. It's a bit scrappy up to that point.

Prob best done as 2 pitches as the rope drag gets unpleasant otherwise. 70m rope needed to lower off in one.
Fiona Reid - Lead - 12/Nov/10 with Mike

Up to 1st lower off.

konna - AltLd O/S - 25/Mar/09 with John Roe

In one pitch (just) with a 70m rope - knot the end! We thought it 5+ and worth three stars. Deserves a better lower-off.

Had meant to lead it, but ended up seconding it so that Nick could get back to the ground. And then the heavens opened. And then the rope got stuck. But still a very nice climb - must go back and do it in the dry sometime
