Side runner in The Waster - way more than E2 without this. Brilliant route.

Lovely. Pad and low side runner.
Will Hunt - Lead O/S - 04/Sep/12 with Tom Nichols

With pad. Cool first moves, then nice climbing to the top. Probably feels much easier (still bold) if taller than 5' 9".

Ascent that I've waited to do for ages. Cutting loose to the stretchy holds at the start proved to be a proper 'moment' which was swiftly followed by some psyched up technical manoeuvres, leading to disco leg city whilst sorting pro. All in all, in hindsight, it was mostly steady and controlled. Excellent route!

Not quite onsight as I had previously seconded it 11 years ago. Fair to say that didn't help much! Went for the side-runner option in Waster which still left it reasonably bold and committing. E2 and a 1/2 without the side-runner? Tremendous quality, very worthwhile route.

Hidden - 2nd dog - 23/Jun/10

no idea how some one would lead it as the holds are really sharp and far apart and pretty bold bottom section with no gear till 2 thirds of the way up
ekaterina sigida - TR - 11/May/10 with Dave Green

quite easy(I am 6 foot+). rained a bit more heavily after I did the crux, got an active wire for shits and giggles.
Ewan Russell - Lead O/S - 29/Apr/10 with Ralph

Laurence Everitt - TR - 29/Mar/10 with Mike Gadd

had gear low in 'waster', assume this is in at the grade, even with it in absolute top end, unless, of course, you are 5'11"+
