the large block at the top of the final crack has gone! making the fininsh more difficult. When you get to the top the belay is a serious of sharp boulders - ie the remains of the top of the crag after most was washed away in the winter storms - scary!

Joel Perkin - 2nd dog - 14/Jul/14 with Simon Hammond

Tricky start and then no gear placed to the fist ledge. Really nice route but not sure I was exactly on line at the top.
simonhammond1966 - Lead O/S - 14/Jul/14 with Joel Perkin

There appears to be several ways to do the start, I am pretty sure that I found the most strenuous!

Loved it!! a route of three parts- boulder then a short juggy slab with little gear then steep laybacks. Looking at photos it appears the top has gone walkabout in the storms. Sticking to the left flakes to avoid loose rock made an interesting final move!

Failed dismally on the start, which to me (in my rather knackered state) seemed more like 5b, or harder. Luckily the crack to the right is a more amenable alternative start. Rest of the route very reasonable.
Jules Lane - 2nd O/S - 21/Apr/14 with Will

Not sure why this is such a popular route - the start is interesting but the rest of the route not especially great.
BarrySW19 - 2nd RP - 18/Apr/14 with Spenser

Gets the dubious award of being the most unenjoyable route I've climbed. Possibly because the moves felt a little close to my limit. The initial bouldery sequence took a couple of attempts to figure out.
