Hidden - AltLd - 14/Sep/14

Lead P3 and P5. Slimey scramble for P1, crux section in P2, scary bold traverse for P3 (easy to mis identify the belay ledge), awesome friction on the exposed bulge on P4, loose blocks on P5. Great route!
Emma Reynolds - AltLd O/S - 13/Sep/14 with Ky Aizawa

Lead P1, P2 and P4. P1 is heavily vegetated and a bit grim but P2 and P4 make it all worthwhile. Care needed with P2 (loose flake) and P5 (loose blocks). Generally clean (well, P2-4) with decent friction; had to dig out some gear slots, and a clean would make P3 feel more like 4b. Awesome route, adventurous feeling and well worth the effort!!
kyaizawa - AltLd O/S - 13/Sep/14 with Emma Reynolds

Led P1, P3-4. P2 crux and can confirm 'death flake' is still in place. Imagine it will be around for a while yet!
odox - AltLd O/S - 08/Jun/13 with Joe Spoor

Lead the two main pitches, very dirty and didn't like the death flake one bit!
JeromeT - AltLd O/S - 03/Jun/12 with Dom Jeff

Pretty cool climb in a nice location, but don't go expecting clean rock or a soft touch! Em did a ridiculously vegetated variation first pitch, second pitch is grubby and has a scary death flake in second groove. Third pitch is nice but bold and top pitches are fun on good rock (stay left) but super easy, worth the walk but needs a clean....
Chad123 - AltLd O/S - 01/Oct/11 with Emily

First pitch extremely vegetated and unpleasant. Rest of climb good if lichenous. Obviously not getting that much traffic. Lead 1st and 3rd pitches.
IainMcF - AltLd dog - 30/Jul/11 with Ian B

Character building jungle bash for the first pitch. Worth the effort though. Looks very dirty from below but OK when on the climb.
