Tough route,the first pitch really tested me, top end E2.
Martin Haworth - AltLd O/S - 03/Jun/12 with Andy

Led pitch 2.Pleased to second 1st pitch cleanly and even more pleased to lead through the thin 'stopper move' on pitch 2, which must have been hard because even Martin paused there for a couple of minutes!

First pitch amazing and sustained 5c, too late for second pitch.

henwardian - Lead O/S - 21/Jul/11 with Fraser-with-the-beard

Jonathan Lagoe - UKC - AltLd O/S - Jul/11 with Cynthia Grindley, Pete Whillance

I barely seconded this clean. some balancy and precarious moves for sure. Good steady lead by The Berlingo Bandit ; )
jazzyjackson - 27/Jun/11

Led both pitches for a full experience...amazing, but taxing!!
sebrider - Lead O/S - 27/Jun/11 with jazzyjackson

Absolutely amazing climbing. Sustained and interesting climbing all the way with just enough good gear to keep the mind happy (although a bit fiddly at times). Cant rate it enough!
geoff.comley - Lead O/S - 11/Jun/11 with Simon

The best pitch of 5c I ever had the misfortune to second!
simon_D - 2nd O/S - 11/Jun/11 with Geoff

Still brilliant 13 years or so later - lead the top pitch this time which shouldn't be underestimated. Em cruised the crux first pitch. Just about the same grade as the pillar but very much the top and bottom of the grade!
