[Last Pitch of Sleepwalk, 3 kb]63m, 4 pitches. A Sea Walls classic that sees plenty of action. The climbing is bold on the third pitch but is fairly straightforward and not polished. Start at a short wall just right of a thin crack, as for Morpheus.. 1) 4a, 18m. Boulder up the short steep wall to a big ledge and a good nut-runner. Wander right to an easy-angled blocky corner and follow this for 5m to a belay ledge and rock spike.. 2) 16m. Move leftwards up a smooth slab to a broken corner-line, follow this to a good ledge and belay on its right side. The lower belay nuts are poor but the best placement is just above and not easily seen when standing on the belay ledge.. 3) 17m. Climb the right-trending slabs above in a fine position, but with no protection, to a good crack where the wall steepens. A quick pull gains a belay ledge.. 4) 4a, 10m. Climb the steep, well-protected corner-crack behind the belay to finish. © ROCKFAX
(4a, -, -, 4a) Turn right during the first pitch of Morpheus. Pleasant climb for a sunny afternoon. Fun corner crack on last pitch.

Lucas H - AltLd O/S - 26/Jul/14

Were planning to do Mobius but it was so unbearably hot we just sacked that plan off, found a slightly disturbing loose block at the top of pitch two which was odd considering how well traveled the route is.
Quarryboy - 2nd rpt - 26/Jul/14 with Lukasz Harazin, Jack Treble

Unbearably hot. We used this route just to get back to the top. Climbed in 2 pitchs - Kat led P1+2 together and I led P3+4 together.

Soloed this by mistake. Took ropes up with the intention of doing Morpheus and then abbing off the tree but by the time I realised that I was on the wrong (and much harder) route, it was too late to reverse and I got a bit carried away and just climbed all the way to the top.

Hidden - 2nd β - 25/May/11

First outdoor route of the year (unfortunately) so decided on this as a bit of a warm-up. Stuck to the Avon Guide of 4 pitches but you could easily link pitches 2 and 3 together (and probably 4) with a bit of loud shouting over the traffic / wind! There is a crack leading straight up from the final belay which look more interesting than the 4a polished finishing crack, steeper but great holds.

Although described as four pitches, we did it in three (belay stance at end of our second pitch was that described for end of pitch 3). Nice climb, although Aldred commented there was not much opportunity to protect the second pitch.
