dicky79 - AltLd O/S - 26/May/13 with Pete

Seconded to get to the top of the crag after failing on titanium man. Some great airy sequences on this.
Duncan Campbell - 2nd - 30/Apr/13 with Florence the Machine, Bubbles

Lead P2. Great technical moves to the arete and quite committing too. Glad you could back the peg up with a good wire. Brilliant route. Gets E1 5b in the book and it definately is.
JezH - AltLd O/S - 30/Mar/13 with Ellie

Hidden - AltLd O/S - 30/Mar/13

Led P2. Loved the traverse section.
JonnoP - AltLd O/S - 28/Jul/12 with Chad

sgl - Lead dog - 28/Jul/12 with Seaweed

I thought HVS 5b fair grade as most of climb is a lot easier and thin move left well protected by peg and wire (stay low, much harder if you traverse higher). It is committing heading to the arete though so I can see why people think E1. **
Chad123 - AltLd O/S - 28/Jul/12 with JonnoP

lead 2nd pitch
Abi Chard - AltLd β - 21/Jul/12 with Ian

Liam FLeming - 2nd - 26/Jun/11 with Caroline

Hidden - AltLd rpt - 11/Jun/11

Traversed high and discovered I could not reach (by about 3cm) to make the move, and took a 3m inverted lob - doh! Traversed low and made harder moves to gain arete from below the second time. Very good climb.
Dizz - Lead - 11/Jun/11 with Ruth A

Went to finish direct on P2 and took a monster wanger onto an RP; Nice!
Tommy Cole - AltLd dog - 08/Mar/11 with Alex Mason

Led both pitches after tommy took an absolute screamer onto an rp trying to climb the top arete of Titanium Man!
