The right hand side of the corner looks like it could collapse quite easily.

Al P1 me P2, I rant the pitch out form the peg because I assumed that the crack to right was off line, one hell of a runout :-)

aged_ape - AltLd O/S - 03/May/11 with IH

In one long pitch. Fairly easy but bold climbing. The rib which forms the right side of the corner near the top is worryingly unstable.

ian d f - AltLd O/S - 14/Mar/10 with Grace Chuchla

Led 1st pitch, hard 4b, lots of wierd moves. Second pitch quite exposed but low in 5a or even just a 4c to follow. Chossy corner - remove your leaders micronuts with care!

The crux has a very dodgy looking peg and nothing else, as well as some tough climbing. Once past the peg, the corner looks like it's being held there by the grace of god with some help from the angels and saints... climb CAREFULLY

Last pitch was crazy! Had numb fingers, and felt like i was a mile above my gear! Great Fun climbing it though!

mikelaing - Lead - Aug/07 with Carolyn

2nd pitch although has adequate protection. This thins out after the sapling and being my first V.S lead gave me 25 foot of mind games before belaying from the two pegs in the bay (rusty but solid) as there is nothing else to belay from. The last pitch is a 5a negotiation of a bulge/overhang with a peg on the left to protect the move. Without the pegs the grade would be a lot harder and there is fantastic friction on the top of the 3rd pitch.

Scary at top of second pitch, long runout but very manageable climbing. Good route.
Siderunner - Lead O/S - 20/Aug/06 with Bee

One 40m pitch. Felt a bit serious above the crux.
