Led all pitches. Top pitch quite delicate and exposed. Nice route.
Andrew Sloan - Lead O/S - 18/Jul/15 with Agnes

An enjoyably airy feel to the final pitch. Dithered at the crux, appropriately puzzled as to how best to approach the key foot match smear. Feels ok once committed. Led P2.

Led pitch 2 and 4. On pitch 4 I bailed right at the top of the wide crack as above me was just shrubbery.
ben.phillips - AltLd O/S - 19/Oct/14 with Mike Gallimore

Led P1P3, short crux. It was blowing a gale on the last pitch (ben's lead) which made things difficult.

with gav who led the cleaner 5a cracks in 1 pitch to belay before the 5b pitch, i led this. top pitch was considered too overgrown, worth cleaning if I ever have some time!

Led 1st and 3rd (crux) pitches. Excellent adventure. 1st (4b) pitch was very good!
mick1jones - AltLd O/S - 18/Apr/10 with Chris Dale

Thought we were on Great Western, Climbed the steep cracks on pitch 2 with a bit of aid because they were wet!! Superb top pitch led by Stu, Thin on gear!
jamie ward - AltLd O/S - 12/Aug/08 with Stuart Williams

Climbed direct to 2nd belay of Great Western. Twin cracks were wet but HVS/E1. The move was great fun. Didn't fancy the look of the bushy crack for the exit!
dicky79 - AltLd O/S - 05/Apr/08 with Nicola

Must do for the move on the first proper pitch!!
Dan 85 - AltLd O/S - 03/Jun/07 with Jonny
