Hidden - AltLd O/S - 17/May/15
P1 really chewed me up and spat me out. Managed to get up to the overhang but just couldn't figure out the moves. Ended up taking the somewhat easier route (though overgrown) around the right of the bulge.
P2 was fantastic, especially the finger jamming ramp. On the final moves to the ledge you can look down on massive holds and really enjoy the exposure.
P3 was short, technical and bouldery with some loose holds but they seem pretty jammed in there.
purplemonkeyelephant - 2nd dog - 16/May/15
Difficult to find the right route, I think I missed a peg on P1 and ended up going too far left. Not sure if the picture above and description of the tree in the crack is really this route, think that maybe route I? Second pitch we couldn't figure out which way it went (easy) and the third was nice but way too short.
Think there are better routes elsewhere, e.g. Joe's route.

fine clean climbing. suspect some descriptions below not on this route.First photo certainly isn't. crux P1 requires thought, but kit ok. p2 worth the 4b. p3 polished, loads of kit and fun.

Murilo Lessa - Lead O/S - 21/Jul/13 with Bruno Cavaliere
Nightmare trying to find start. It is 1 meter to the right of SRR1(SRR 1 is scratched on the rock at the bottom) up a very easy looking low angle start. Its VS due to 3rd pitch. We ran out of time so did not do 3rd pitch.
MikeC59 - AltLd - 17/Jul/13 with Kuang
2nd day real rock climbing - really liked pitch 2 in the corner with the handy tree. Final pitch with the loose rock is a bit scary, but it holds. I was half expecting it to come out and remove my teeth.
Apparently the guide book has this as VS 4c.

Think our previous attempt stayed on Route 1. First two pitches good fun if a little dusty - quite steep sections in places with great holds. Final pitch we went round to the right through the overgrown path and found a pretty short and rather odd final wall, which if climbed on the very right side had little crimps and was quite hard (if contrived).

Jonathan Storey - 2nd O/S - 02/Jun/09 with JamieC, Alan
Trevor led all three pitches. Pretty low in the grade I think, Not a vast number of 4c moves and nice big stances for three people to untangle their ropes. The wobbly final wall is a topic of Wintour's folk lore - often taken by folks thinking there are on route I (like me previously)
