Thin moves on first pitch - no giveaway. Lovely technical climbing. I led the easier second pitch - 5a. Quite bold because you are moving away from your gear placed from the belay ledge and have to do the crux before you get to place next piece of gear.
Swotson - AltLd O/S - 26/Aug/12 with Tony Madden

Did P2 of Great Western to get to start.

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

went up to do pin cussion, was having a bad day already nearly slipped off easy section on first pitch of scratch arret poor friction. Decided to do monkey puzzle instead, good route did drop a set of nuts which landed in a bush climbing down got them back, then nearly lost the ropes see bad day. o well all a lot of fun

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
