Great fun! Not bold, even without big cams.
GPN - Lead - 27/Jul/14 with Annette

Surprisingly nice -apart from the start it must be like what the rest of main wall was like before it got polished. The start is horrid though.

great route, got to get stuck in and battle a bit. The fossil features on the wall are amazing and help a lot. Quite like climbing at St Govans Pembroke.

Top tip 1: Camalot #4 is too small. Top tip 2: Don't leave 120cm slings at the bottom.

In the darkness and the wet on top rope, just for fun. For most of it I couldn't see the top or the ground.

Lord_ash2000 - Lead O/S - 29/Aug/11

Camalot 5 and some ingenuity essential. if you don't like off width cracks then don't bother! very strenuous in places. very enjoyable and much less polished than Jean Jeanie

Nice route. Variety of ways to do each move combining jams, laybacks and even crimps on the sides of the crack.

Birdo - Lead O/S - 22/Aug/10 with Jenny Brown

This climb is a total path, more like VS 4c. A doddle. Get in the crack, no protection needed. You can get solid leg locks and hands free rests almost all the way up.

nutallovertheface - Lead O/S - 13/Aug/08 with Didier Nuttall

Felt pretty steady/easy for E1. Spaced gear options and ranting pigeons added to the suspense though!
