I led the first pitch; Mike the second
Theeni - AltLd O/S - 12/Oct/14 with Mike Kennedy
Great route - enough gear to make it safe enough but still hard and at the upper end of E2 by my reckoning.
kenneM - AltLd O/S - 12/Oct/14 with Henry Crosby
Proper layback at the top which Jamie managed to mostly reach past! An intricate and great top pitch.
georgeevans88 - 2nd O/S - 23/Sep/14 with Jamie
Seconded the first pitch before. Very balancy climbing with pretty good protection. The jug at the top felt a bit loose to me when i grabbed it.

Matt Amos - Lead O/S - 14/Apr/14 with Barney Adams
P2. Tricky and a little balancy and awkward. Good.
Ollie B - AltLd O/S - 16/Feb/14 with O.Lancett
1st pitch is an enjoyable HVS i didn't notice much polish at all. 2nd pitch starts very easily until technical moves take you a long way above your gear to a ledge and a good small wire placement which protects the crux which i found hard and Chris found easy

Pete lead first pitch, I got up to the peg on the second pitch but couldn't for the life of me work out how to get to the arete. Down-climbed to the belay so Pete could have a crack. He got a few moves higher than me, then when he started pulling out the sky hooks and pocket etriers, I knew I wouldn't be following him!
Dave 88 - AltLd dnf - 01/Jun/12 with Salisbury Pete
First pitch was I thought harder than HVS now it's all polished up. Second pitch surprisingly overgrown/dirty - excellent climping - not sure you'd like it if you were under 6'

jon_ridley - AltLd dog - 11/Feb/12 with Paul Poudevigne-Durance, Geoff Pyatt
Hidden - 2nd dog - 11/Feb/12
Linked the pitches - not too much rope drag if your first runner on P2 is quite high. First pitch very polished, but enjoyable. To reiterate the climber's club guide, make sure you have some small wires for P2! (a couple of DMM #1 or BD #4 will do - no need for anything too tiny)
Nick Russell - Lead O/S - 22/Jan/12 with Martin
First pitch only. Great climbing and really suits my style so felt soft for HVS. Stoked for the second pitch but no micro wires.

Slipped on polished 1st pitch then did this again cleanly. However needed a very tight rope at the top of second pitch!
leigh - 2nd dog - 03/Jul/11 with Ed
It looked ok from the ground :D First pitch is very nice... although horrifically polished. Second pitch was grippy but a bit scary on crux (tiny protection). Needs wires really but managed to use a 0 nut and could just about tap one in a tiny crack.
