Stepped onto the boulder to drop a nut down the back then finished. Really nice moves but bold without the nut and very lichenous/dirty towards the top.

Hidden - 2nd O/S - 30/Jun/13

Led up to the last two moves, committed to the move but with all the lichen plus the sweaty conditions was quite off putting and with the ground fall potential, I dropped back down, hooked a leg over the block on the right (which actually turned out to be not an easy task) and went up the other side of the arete.
charley - Lead O/S - 10/Jun/13 with Ange, Kev

Excellent route but very bold. Sensible sidestep onto the block by Charley due to lack of gear, potential ground fall and lots of lichen, as always was nice enough on a rope :-)

Tithe Technique - TR O/S - 10/Jun/13 with Angela Paul, Charley Fell

Hanski - 2nd - Jul/11 with Simon Kimber

Another good climb. Looked hard but once got going was good. Did two last climbs when I thought I wouldn't be able to.

Robin Warden - Lead - 22/May/11 with rob weston

Shunted it. Would be an exposed lead
adamwesthead - TR O/S - 23/Apr/11

dry and went ok but nervy after last fall. Got a jammed sling around the block again.
lithos - Lead rpt - 24/Jun/10

jammed slings (ie caught on crab) around the boulder seem to be the way!looked pretty secure - not moving even with a few tugs

Andy Graham - Lead O/S - 2010 with Steve Anderson

preplaced sling round boulder, and crash padded the bottom to avoid falling down the hole!

very bold for VS nearer the HVS mark
Graeme Hammond - Lead β - 02/May/09 with adam

God knows what this gets logged as - climbed cleanly, half of it on the lead, half on a top rope - very bold at the top for VS, although the climbing is probably only about 4c. Think you would deck if you fluffed the last move!

easy climbing (definitely not 5a, which is what nothern england guide book suggests), but quite bold.

Put foot out onto lodged block on right, so assume this is 'off route'!!
Matt Bill Platypus - Lead dnf - 14/Jul/07

took a big fall from top when steping onto block on right to inspect gear - very slippery. Bold++ at the top
