Top rope solo. Climbed 2nd pitch first. 1st pitch second. Cannot finish 1st pitch direct up crack at moment due to bush so have to move around left at top. Vegetated. Ivy is very slippery for feet!

Some very enjoyable climbing on the 2nd pitch despite being twanged by catapulted sloe berries from Chris.

Hidden - Lead O/S - 06/Aug/12

Bit bold towards the top, enjoyable climbing although the first pitch is ruined by some Hawthorne which tried to eat me and then tried to throw me off.

Chris Sieradzki - AltLd O/S - 11/Mar/12 with Hooo

Led P2. Bolder than I was expecting, didn't place anything between the in-situ thread and just below the top.

tobydunford - AltLd O/S - 09/Apr/11 with Harry Martin

P1 me, felt like HVS and a bit vegetated at the top. P2 def felt E1, using the thread and then moving onto the arete. Too far around and you get to a VS route.

gdb4060 - Lead O/S - 01/Jul/08 with Mike

Second pitch line not at all obvious. Went as straight as possible but ended up moving a bit right to avoid mantelling on vegetated hold
Sam W - AltLd - 16/Jun/08 with Ali Williams

LC - Lead O/S - May/08

Had prev seconded. Took the most direct line I coud at the top, but didn't feel E1

Circus - Lead O/S - 16/Jul/07 with Steve Pickett

Second pitch really doesn't have a clear line. If you go too far left it looks impossible, too far right and it looks like a vdiff. I think I took the correct route in the end but most of the challenge was figuring out where to go, the climbing felt like hvs.
Stone Muppet - 07/Jul/07

Lead as 1 pitch which was probably not a great idea. Horrible 1st half nice top bit.
Morgan Woods - Lead O/S - 10/Jun/07 with Gareth

simonf - Lead O/S - 2007

beardy mike - 2007 with Iain Shone

1st pitch had a good layback move but is v chossy. Really struggled to see the 2nd pitch line. Climbed the short wall, lovely moves, and headed right slightly. Moved left but not as far as the nice fresh looking thread as it seemed a bit too far left. So instead, did a hard mantle move (felt 5b) and finished up a groove. Felt a bit wrong.
