Excellent. Climb the centre of the buttress passing through the conspicuous shallow notch (the bull's horns) to below the capping roof. Finish left or right over this. © ROCKFAX

Found it very bold and polished, didn't have the beans to just go for it! Probably could have pulled it off if I did!

Was testing 4 years ago, went without fuss this time. Good crimpy holds when you find them.

Good climb. Short on gear and bold through the horns. Quite polished lower down. High in the grade imo.

dk247 - 2nd - 01/May/11 with Owdham

Nice Climbing untill 1/2 way, that it becomes very friable and "dirty". Went off route to the left. One to return to, to conquor.
Owdham - Lead dnf - 01/May/11 with Dave Keogh

Even more polished then some of the classics on Stanage

Enjoyed it - a couple of foot holds which look positive but are actually polished like glass.

Had tried to lead and never found the correct sequence. No problems on top rope once it had been pointed out to me - rested on rope to try to retrieve a very stuck piece of gear.

An extremely enjoyable climb. Quite easy upto half height, then becomes a little more difficult. No real problems though.
