Bede - 2nd - 19/Apr/14 with Matt

This climb gets dwarfed by the classics nearby but don't be fooled. 1st pitch just a scramble. 2nd pitch is scary for a solo: strenuous, exposed and committing at the top.

kfowler141 - Lead - 26/May/12

A very easy first pitch followed by a very strenuous and quite awkward 2nd pitch. At the top end of the grade. A good finish to a great cragging day.
Jeavsy - Lead - 21/May/12 with Ian Lynch, Matt Hing

Lacking a finger-size cam and the balls to just go for it, neither me nor my partner wanted to lead the exposed part. This one spot has limited protection, a bad landing if you fell, polished holds and big exposure. Not really VD terrain in my book.

Hidden - Lead O/S - Sep/09

Ouch, this can catch you out. The corner stance area is very small. I rushed off to do the second pitch with just a few nuts and got caught out. I didn't have the right gear which made the climb a little hairy!! Exposed!! Definitely harder than a VDiff.
