Second time i've done this, not bad gear wise but the top is very loose and muddy with the sizeable blocks looking pretty dangerous; be careful what you pull on! Not a great climb. The second chockstone's not useable any longer

Great Climb, liked the crack and easy gear on the chockstones. Good piece of tat at thetop for absail descent.

nicknicely - 2nd - 15/Jul/13

Sophie led, Stu second and me third all on one 60M rope. Nice lead from Sophie. Easy climb with big jugs and ledges to stand on. No need of any crack shenanigans, chockstone and side-cracks within the crack gave good holds over the crux. Abseiled back down off the tat.

nice crux moves, having a few wide crack skills in your bag of tricks helps but is not essential.

nice off width crack. bottom of the grade. Only one move that is worthy of severe about 1/3 up. having said that worthy of a star

Pretty average
Steerpike - 2nd O/S - 05/Aug/10 with Huw
