Went off route at one point - a route not entirely clear (to me anyway!) but overall thoroughly enjoyed this. Did feel quite hard for V Diff in places but mainly solid. Some good tree belays to be had!

Charleston - AltLd rpt - 22/Apr/15 with Ben, Izzy, Jim
1st climbed 10 years ago and has just got worse. Terrible protection, chunks of rock coming off, hollow flakes, mud, grass and loose blocks. Not technical, but feels exposed as gear placements are sparse or suspect. Only climb to ever spook me.
back climbed down the crystal corner on 2nd pitch and used nearby bolt to abb off.
Not going back as it would be easy to take a fall on this and with such poor protection, not recommended.
u000533 - Lead dnf - 19/Apr/15
Not terribly well protected, and felt very hard for grade. It had its moments, but P3 is an absolute horror. Frankly, it is probably best avoided by all except those with masochistic tendencies.

Dog P1 & P2. Dassie P3 & P4 together. Very damp & muddy.P1 very slippery. P3 & P4 involved standing on muddy ledges and pulling up on wet grass. Hair raising with lots of loose rock at the top. Anchored on the crash barrier next to the road. Despite being only a VD felt a risk several times. Would be far better when its dry.

nice climb found lots of gear placements and not too hard climbing except pitch 3 where there was way too much grass and i could only find shoddy gear placements and then placed no gear on pitch 4 as it got to dark to see and had no torch.
martiny25 - Lead O/S - 12/Dec/09 with chris stan
A bit of an epic - finished the route in the dark without a tourch and carrying my rucksack - a few cuts for our troubles as Andy ran out of gear as we linked 3rd and 4th pitch in an effort to save time. I led 2 pitch, too much vegitation on ledges. felt harder than VD but maybe because of the time and rucksack. Nice airy route on 2nd pitch

Took a fall off the top of the first pitch after going slightly right. Branch of a tree I didn't want to use snapped.
8m-ish, bad ankle, wrist and knee. I was lucky, downclimbed then got back on climb.

Led 1 & 3, abseiled off top. nearly came a cropper on 3rd pitch with hold coming away in my hand. LOADS of grass, not much gear. It injured me but I conquered it !!
Not my day for climbing, went home afterwards.

Dan B - Lead O/S - 20/Sep/08 with Bev
This was meant as a warmup, but it was a bad choice. Where there was rock, it was an easy climb. The rest was heavily vegetated. Horrible. As for protection, there was sod all. Given the diagonal route, twin ropes would be a good idea.
I lead pitches 2 and 4.
For fun, at the end, we turned it into a 3 pitch abseil. Convenient trees. Inconvenient thorny bushes.
