a thuggy route and quite sustained.. Dave did well and i had to rely on the bridge to get off the first crack which is just too small for me to get a decent hand jam

Slipped out of the jams, so annoyed! Just as hard as I remember it from seconding years ago, obviously my jamming hasn't got any better...

Foot holds crumbled on the left, luckily had my hands on the ledge by then. Considerably tougher than Hades, and nowhere near as good. Def not 3 stars.

Brilliant route! Steep start with thin jams felt like a bit of a battle and required quite a lot of climbing up and back down. Not quite onsight unfortunately - slipped off near the start when my jam popped and so ended up 'ground-upping' it instead.

timmsy - Lead - 17/Nov/11 with David_Gledson

Nice Climbing! It was raining which made it a bit slippery and holds more 'detachable'! But after climbing this I do indeed rather like this crag!

Really good route. Fairly hard for VS but only about 4 rather tight hand,fingerlock moves which are 5a. Shame theres lots of face holds either side of the crack and chimney higher up.
joe larner - Lead O/S - 01/Dec/07

Fell off initial crack on first attempt, altered hand jam slightly for second go - it worked :-)
