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.

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

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

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
