Because the rope was stuck atop The Black Riders. Mostly soloed, but tied onto the rope on the crux.

Easy enough. Getting out of the cleft is the only tricky bit but that's not hard either. The very top is 25M away but there is another tree to belay from at about 20M leaving a short scramble to the very top. The left hand descent gully is not very nice. Abseiling is better but you need a 60M rope to get back down to the bottom! Alternatively abseil back down the climb from the 20M belay tree.

Started off leading it but couldnt work out what to do when the crack narrowed. Spicy for a VD lead, easy for a second.

Solo onsight in trainers with a coat tied round my waste. Crux is definitely the step round the small arÍte as that was the only bit which made me feel slightly nervous.

Showing Simon how to belay with double ropes. Straightforward route, the only interest is the step left from the cleft onto the slab. Slab was straightforward.
