Linked the first 2 pitches, not a very good route at all.

Hidden - AltLd O/S - 19/Dec/14

Maybe not quite worth a star, but well worth doing if you can handle some slightly dodgy rock. Abseiled from the bolts after pitch two.
pheotleyr - AltLd O/S - 19/Jun/14 with Iggy

Led P1, felt hard for 4c but may just have been the lack of gear. P2 good fun then abbed off.
squicky - AltLd O/S - 19/Jun/14

Crux not as hard as wading through the undergrowth at the bottom. Middle pitch not bad at all, so I giv ethis a star. Bailed off rings top of P2 to make it home for dinner (and to avoid hawthorn shrouded death-blocks on P3).

Hidden - 2nd O/S - 21/Mar/10

Lead the first pitch - which I may have been slightly off route as it felt like 5a with zero gear. Mike backed off p2 as it was "rather loose". Abbed off.

Hidden - AltLd - 1966

Our first main wall climb. Half way up the loose blocks I decided I had gone far enough and belayed from a doubtful piton next to a Syringopora coral. Lucky we survived!
