Wanted to lead this climb but it has started to thaw on the first 10m making it very thin so I decided to be safe and top roped it. Enjoyed this climb very much and will return again to lead when in better condition.

Top roped due to conditions. Bottom 1/3 thin/missing and thin at top. Late start (4pm) after work but worth the effort. Good sustained climb.
Jim Haydock - 29/Mar/13 with Jeff Breen

Night ascent. Very thin on lower section. Finished with full moonlight. Great little route with some scary run outs.

Shaw Brown - Lead - 08/Dec/10 with Conan

Great pitch. Great night. route was a bit stepped and well protected so grade IV in this nick.
Conan - 2nd O/S - 08/Dec/10 with Shaw Brown

A good long pitch. Combine this with another good pitch a few hundred yards away, seen on the approach.
