Lowered off to side, nut popped, due to side pull in dirty crack. Dropped a couple of metres and stripped sheath from rope.

In descent - protected by rope over the top of the pinnacle.

charley 02/May/10 Solo O/S

did it twice in approach shoes - really liked it. We didn't fancy the down climb so setup a rope to get back down..

Me and Matt cruised up this to sit on the top, nice climb, but great position to sit in when your finished. Watched the sun lower slightly then realised we had to do the quite scary downclimb! Turned out not to be as bad as I had remembered and felt much more solid this time round.

First lead on a nice wee climb... nice weather, kids watching and best mate seconding.... excellent.

Remember the descent is either to reverse the route, or jump to the next boulder. No walking off this one.

jimorothy ?/Jun/08 Solo

Rory bobbed up in his trainers and we felt obliged to follow also in trainers... did the cliffhanger jump of glory to get off which has to be easier and safer than the down climb.
