Mistaking soloed first pitch not realising where we started. Took Rich up on his first outdoor climbing experience. In shoes not stickies.
localboy - Lead O/S - 24/May/13

From the top I watched two crazy guys cycling down the huge slab on the other side of the river. Interesting...

I don't think I have ever climbed 3 pitches in less than 10 minutes before.
Quarryboy - Solo O/S - 06/Apr/12

Desperate for an ice cold drink from the ice cream van on the downs. More I do this now the more I like it.
Stanners - Solo rpt - 29/Mar/12 with Andy G

a quicker way than the path to get up to the downs for an ice cream
theclimbingfabrigas4 - Solo rpt - 29/Mar/12 with Rob Stanfield

Definitely did not skip school with Andy to go climbing today. 1st half of route belayed by Andy (basically soloing) and climbed parallel together up the top slab on 2nd half of the route.

Moved together and placed one piece of gear on middle slab to protect the exposure.

Hidden - AltLd rpt - Nov/11

Used as a way to reach the top belay of great central route. Where Jack was waiting with rope drag being too much for me to second him. Ended up abseiling off a very small tree to retrieve the gear. scary. Quite good route considering it is only a mod.
