fizzychewitt - AltLd - 28/Sep/14 with Martin

A great climb in very warm Sept sunshine. Exciting leading the 3rd pitch across the traverse and up the crack.
HJSmith - AltLd - 21/Sep/14 with Tracy Whyte

will moy - Lead O/S - 18/Aug/14

In 3 pitches (joined the first 2). I led the middle one, in light rain. Fun route, shame about the turd someone had thoughtfully placed on the main belay ledge.
Simon Caldwell - AltLd O/S - 16/Aug/14 with Paul Davies

Led 2nd pitch, abseiled off after 2nd.
StevieJ - AltLd - 16/Aug/14 with lithos

1st 2 pitches only, then ab off P2.
lithos - AltLd - 16/Aug/14 with steve j

Easy to start, gets more serious as you get higher, the final crack and chimney is definitely the crux. Not much gear in the chimney.
Puma - AltLd - 16/Aug/14 with Simon C

Ian led P1, I led P2. P3, Ian moved over to "Slick" (VD), so I led P4 of that (the starting crack of which isn't much fun)
MatthewV - AltLd dnf - 09/Aug/14 with Diziet

I led P1; Matthew led P2. Halfway through P3 I didn't fancy the rather bare traverse across the slab so diverted left onto Slick (VD).

Hidden - Lead - 24/Jul/12

Hidden - 2nd - 16/Jul/12

Led in 3 pitches; belayed above the tree and then below the crack in the headwall (not a good belay). 1st pitch easy slab, p2 quite a tricky traverse with only fair gear over to the corner below the crack in the wall. The corner was a stream, not a good place to belay :S headwall crack was good, first move gives the crux with a tricky entry. Up the tombstone chimney then on to the rib to finish. Charlie's first climb with me, a fun afternoon out apart from the aqua belay.

Guto Evans - AltLd - 19/Jun/10 with Dilwyn Jones

fizzychewitt - AltLd - 13/Jun/10 with Francis

Lawson combined pitches 1 & 2 to the tree to set up a nice exposed belay. I climbed over the flake and traversed the slab and made my way up the wall which was a bit chossy and wet to find a crack in the wall. This was bloody hard for a S 4a! I'd say it's well undergraded and a daunting lead. You have to step out onto a small step and pull up, I place a good hex and a cam above it. I then used an arm bar and a lot of sweating to get up in and over to the belay. Lawson followed and led the final pitch which was a chimney behind the pinnacle. Very nice route but definitely undergraded if you do it the way I did.
