Roget - Solo O/S - 11/Jul/15 with jim

Route checking with Crofty. Top rope inspection. Needs gardening and cleaning. BIG thread low down, green camalot is the ONLY cam that fits high up, same size dragon or WC does not fit!!!!!
NorthernRock - TR - 18/Jun/10 with Crofty

Led to just below the top and then wimped out of the dirty and poorly protected crux. Attached a large hex to one of my ropes and eventually managed to get it over the top of the pinnacle, Carmen then went round the other side and I finished the route on a top rope. Even then it seemed vaguely desperate. MVS 4b P2 in the YMC guide, I felt sandbagged (surely VS 4b top end P3?) until I read the 1974 guide which gives it VDiff!
Simon Caldwell - 25/Aug/09 with Carmen

Couldn't find any gear except dubious sideways no. 1 nut. Backed off from lichenous ledge near top

Bring a spare piece of tat to ab off as there is no escape route for this nasty chimney.

Interesting belay set-up at top and very interesting descent!

No 3 cam jumpped out and tried to eat my belayer. Would have baked off but coudn't let down the 20 Easter egg hunters that had stopped to watch. Dropped a large Hex on a loop of rope to my belayer and got them to place it in the chimney on the reverse side at floor level whilst sitting astride the top. Good for belay and descent.
