John Dale - AltLd - 30/Jul/15 with Brian Bigger

Morris123 - AltLd O/S - 18/Apr/15

I led pitch 1+2 run together. Delicate third pitch, glad I didn't have to lead that one!
Denry - AltLd O/S - 06/Apr/15 with Tom (doctor), Rob Partridge

I think I did it many years ago but can't remember anything of that. Definitely did the crux more recently on Crocadillo Variation. Very good top pitch.

Hidden - 2nd dog - 07/Sep/14

Great friction on rock which feels like it has never been climbed. Interesting move left at the first niche. Hint: hand jam. Finally got to to do the top pitch after my first attempt in 1993 sent me up a wet top pitch of Crocadillo by mistake.
Pete_Frost - Lead rpt - 07/Sep/14 with Jeannie Sherwood

1st pitch only to get to Alcatraz, defanetly not 4c more like 4a

Double Knee Bar - AltLd O/S - 15/Mar/14 with Noddy

Hidden - AltLd O/S - 19/May/13

Ran P1+P2 together and let Gav have the fun. Enjoyed it all in its variety, but P3 is the business end, but only 1 awkward move out of the niche (good gear). The tree at the top is a bit of a pain. Ab off 48m.
lithos - AltLd - 06/May/13 with Gav, oddtoast

First go on a 5a, got proper stuck in the niche for a while but eventually got out cleanly.

pebbles - AltLd - 05/May/13 with graham booth

Graham Booth - AltLd O/S - May/13 with Peri

lead first pitch clean onsight(vs 4c), second on the others P2 4c clean onsight P3 5a fell off , climbed as a three
friendzone1234 - AltLd - 01/Apr/13

Excelent route the first two 4c pitches were more like 4b, but the third pitch which makes the route I thought hard 5a. We both thought this route was better than scratch arette. We watched about 10 teams on scatch arette, not one person on this butteress WHY NOT?
Dale - AltLd O/S - Apr/13 with dave

Ran the 1st 2 pitches together - easily done. Good top pitch in a great position. Shame it kind of peters out at the end.
