Hidden - 02/Jul/14

Stevie lead the top pitch of this by accident instead of the finish of Shear Kahn RHS. Some nice moves but the VS 4C bit must be lower down as this felt more like HS 4b

I led top pitch after Si led Sheer Khan R-hand.
Katex - AltLd β - 21/Aug/12 with Simon Edwards

We Came up Sheer Khan Right Hand but as the 2nd pitch of that was awfully overgrown I decided on finishing up S.T.T.A.B! Difficult moves to the trees with a couple of very good gear placements below the V shaped rock.
magicmartin - Lead O/S - 19/Aug/12 with Zane Butcher

Lee Groves - Lead O/S - 28/May/12 with Amy Ack

Led both pitches same day as Yogi. Bottom section protected by RPs and thin wires - a first time VS leader might find it interesting. Top pitch by crystal crack is delightful.
Pete_Frost - Lead β - 26/May/12 with Dave Pearce

Amy Ack - 2nd O/S - May/12 with Lee Groves

Lead the first pitch, but took the wrong line. Edd lead second pitch.

hedgehog77 - Lead O/S - 20/Apr/11

Top pitch. Smarter uses the slab & rib at VS 4c according to the guidebook, easy even at that grade.
Alex Thompson - Lead O/S - 02/Apr/11 with Chloe Ramsey

Not HVS!
willworkforfoodjnr - AltLd O/S - 13/Mar/11 with JonnyO, Vicky

Chris P1 thin crack to tree, Jonny P2 slab and groove. More like HS 4b,
J25 - AltLd - 13/Mar/11 with Vicky Jennings, Circus Boy

Top pitch after the s start. Nice groove, small but good gear at bottom then ran out to top.

John Kettle - Lead - Sep/10

Barely even VS, more like HS4b. No idea how this gets HVS on here.
groovy_nut - AltLd O/S - 29/Jul/10 with Matt K

I led wet first pitch, tree comes in handy. Dried finishing holds with chalk ball! Top of 2nd pitch is the crux.
pastep - AltLd - 17/Jul/10 with Mick, ebf

Hidden - Lead O/S - 12/Jun/10

Good day out, Starting on the right on overhanging ledges, fluttery to first pro, and still good value to stance. Final arÍte finish very good for the money.
