Easy climbing (no move harder than 4c), but pretty poor gear for the most part. HVS 4c would be a fair reflection - not one to fall off of!

I traversed right onto arete, could be 4c, but no pushover.
Jams Crwca - Lead O/S - 19/May/12 with themadbrown

Good lead by Vince, as others have stated the first gear comes at about 9 metres which I guess would be a bit daunting on lead.

Dave Rumney - 2nd - 06/Apr/12 with Tanya Milner, Sean Roberts

Richard James Edmunds - Lead O/S - Apr/12

I thought the start was tenuous and with poor gear. Good lead by Richard
Pete Nugent - 2nd O/S - 31/Aug/11 with Nigel Lyle (LMC), Richard Toon

I thought this was was a serious, strenous lead with poor gear. Traversed into Abseil Groove instead so as to finish.
