Didnt do last pitch as thought we were on superdirect so will be hading back to do itMichael Allday - AltLd O/S - 08/Aug/13
Hard move at the top with no gear that would stop you from hitting the ledge below. The peg is but a memory.
JulesV - Lead O/S - 13/Jul/13 with Shauna Cunningham
First and last pitches. I found leading the crux on the last pitch pretty darn worrying (a fall would have meant slamming into the ledges below)and the move was a bit of a puzzle. Got it in the end, which felt awesome! There is no peg anymore.

Cool climbing, middle pitches felt very similar to slate climbing and then the top pitch was tricky to work out. I opted for pulling hard rather than hanging around to try and work it out properly!
Took the middle took pitches in one.

Geoff lead the 5c pitch. I was horrified to realise I lead this sans chalk and sticky rubber with a 20' runout in 1976 and very nearly came off. Failed on top pitch although it was windy and going dark.

Mint climbing, on-siting the last pitch was fab cause only had RP's to protect which never inspire a whole lot of confidence!

I led the main pitch...it felt really really necky!! Pegs rusted to stubs and eyeless/untie-off-able. RP's only from memory ...straight on to belay seemingly a long way below.

A peg for aid was standard on the last pitch

1 point of aid as was traditional then. Quite wet after heavy rain all day.
