Went off route for a little bit, felt very hard for a couple of moves, muddy in places (it is December), spikey top out avoided but soooooo much rope drag

After Dexter. Chris lead, a bit run out at the start and the bushes are a pain, but nice moves overall. Finished as the sun dipped over the opposite hills.

after dexter. really nice exposure on the top moves over the roofs on massive holds. some care required at the top not to pull off any hand holds.

not sure if i got it right at the very end, probably didn't go right enough which was ok except that I had to crawl through some bushes

Haven't done this way off lunchtime ledge before. Alright, but didn't go right enough at the top and ended up going between two very sharp trees! Really 2 stars?! Wasn't that special.

A good finish to Sinister
JamesRich - 2nd O/S - 30/Jun/11 with Jack Bradbrook

Good variation, a tad loose in places and hard for the grade in my opinion.

Nice route, better than Direct Route. Not sure where the groundfall runout is? I found gear the whole way, as long as you're prepared to be creative.
mullermn - Lead O/S - 12/May/09 with Tom Perrin

Great friction once you leave Tea Time Ledge. Bit overgrown but really good exposure. Gear typical of the Gorge...shite.
