Hidden - 2nd O/S - 22/Aug/15
Went back to lead after seconding the route earlier in the year. I really enjoyed the climb, always lots of gear so I tried not to over protect. There are a couple of good ledges for hands free rests which certainly helps a lot. I managed to find two good threads on route as well as the usual nuts and cam placements.
I'm not sure I agree with the comments saying this is a 4c, it's certainly less technical than true 4c VS routes.

Ian Stirrups - Lead - 19/Jun/15 with Sue
Excellent route, feels quite long but always well protected. Lots of bridging, layback and jams (if you prefer). Standard for the grade and not too polished despite the comments from others.
Take a lot of gear, Mark was leading and he placed 17 pieces (mix of cams, nuts and hexes) and that was about right.
A bit of an awkward top out as we had to abseil from the big tree (screwgate/slings in place already) which is right on the cliff edge. Maybe next time we will try to top out.
treforsouthwell - 2nd β - 16/Jun/15

Somewhat undergraded at 4b, I would say more like 4c for the moves getting over the roof boulder problem near the start, in part due to the polish. Afterwards just sustained 4b laybacking and/or jamming. Brilliant route and top quality all the way. One of the best VS routes I've done.

Nothing ultra hard, just totally relentless, tough 4b just keeps on coming all way to the top. Executed with determination rather than style. A tad shiney at the bottom, and a great juggy pull over move about 1/3 height - if you elect that option. Top Tip - take plenty of mid to large size gear and borrow some QDs.

Had to hang on the ropes to get the gear Steve had hung on out. Would I have made it without the rests? Who knows! Who cares! Vive la gratuite francaise!
mickyconnor - 2nd dog - 21/Feb/09 with steve
By the time I set off, the bottom 15m or so was completely wet, and treacherously slippery. The drizzle wasn't wetting the upper groove, so that was more pleasant.

Very nice line. Nice sustained jamming crack on the top half (several ledges for rests). Not as interesting a climb as Cadillac (which has a bit of everything on it), but a very nice line.
Good gear throughout.

A "stonking" route (Ross). A sustained, technical VS up a corner. One of the best climbs I have ever done. Slowed down slightly by having to pause for additional quickdraws at halfway.
