Finished first pitch after Dan backed off. Was getting too dark (especially under the roof traverse) so took a little forest outing on the right to escape.

bailed after the first pitch due to poor light, from the belay, if you go up to the tree on the right (up and behind the belay) you can escape to the descent path via treading on only gods know what!

Francois lead - it felt harder this time round than it did when I lead it two years ago! Mind you - it was very windy and the rock was damp/greasy in places.

probably one of the few teams to have actually climbed the right line! strong rail of chalk off left from the first belay ledge but none pulling directly above as the description states. Bold start and bit of a meandering line. Didn't think it was all that!

led top pitch in failing light.glad i wasnt in the others shoes.becky just managed to scrape in with the last seconds of light with unsurprisingly a fall on the traverse beneath the roof.jordan had to give up halfway an escape off the side.lucky i only had to rescue one cam near end of traverse.was able to back climb down an fumble around for it in the dark.hee hee.

Like the guy below, my friend Dave couldn't manage the final slab under the overhang. He did however pioneer an escape route to the right at the tree, which leads round to the decent path.

minexplorer - AltLd - 02/Sep/11 with dave88
Did I ever make a dog's arse of this! Lead 1st pitch, breezed through the crux then spent ages procrastinating about the move onto the slab and eventually had to rest. Seconding 2nd pitch, breezed crux again, got to the second traverse and didn't like the prospect of a huge pendulum off around the buttress, so thought it would be safer to untie and solo up the back. A royal gangf**k all 'round!

chrisallan - Lead O/S - 19/Jun/11
Crazy climb! Really wanted to do clean so was really pleased. Very committing to second as the traverses etc aren't that well protected. First pitch has difficult move round a corner then difficult traverse. Second pitch you end up on a slab under a roof with no hand holds and balancy foot holds - crazy but brilliant! Got to trust those feet....
