just one more - Lead O/S - 04/Sep/14 with Svenn G

Fell off after trying to go to direct through the roof on the 3rd pitch
Dan0Me - AltLd dnf - 26/Jul/14 with James S

Led second pitch, which was great. Didn't feel too hard, but then it was all clipping pegs so no hanging around. Jonnie took a couple of good lobs off the roof on pitch 3, and I ended up leading that too. Just quite committing.
mountain_jay - AltLd O/S - 21/May/14 with jonnie watkins

Hidden - AltLd O/S - 04/Apr/14

Lead pitch 3. Excellent route, bit loose right at the top though.
BeccaSnowden - AltLd O/S - 25/Jun/13 with Tom

Lead 1+2. First "pitch" felt really bold, easy though I guess. Second great climbing and covered in pegs - half of which seemed to be new! Great climb.
thomasadixon - AltLd O/S - 25/Jun/13

I led the excellent second pitch, take lots of draws! I stood on a peg near the end and once I noticed ("hmm, didn't notice that good foothold...") didn't have the willpower to take it off again.
Nick Russell - AltLd - 19/Jun/13 with Alex Winter

Very hot and sticky. Led first and third pitches. The second pitch is excellent and pegged up to buggery.
Alex Winter - AltLd O/S - 19/Jun/13 with Nick

Pete Rigby - AltLd dog - 05/Jun/13 with Jim Tan

Hidden - AltLd O/S - 05/Jun/13

I lead P1 which has bugger all gear but is so easy I haven't the cheek to claim alt lead. We ran out of light (and warmth!) for P3 so abbed off tat on the small tree
hms - 2nd β - 23/Apr/13 with AJM

Only did p1&p2 due to impending gloom. Led p2 - fingery and pumpy! Very good.
