Dogged it a couple of months ago. 1st go today and found it quite a bit easier, still pumpy.

Pumpy! Found myself too far left at the slab, then after a hard sequence back right, I found not as many good holds as I expected. Gear very good, but a tad fiddly. Got to a move or so below the big crack, then ran out of juice. Good learning experience as always. Brilliant climbing.

Brilliant steep climbing, gear looked good but was very boxed on the second. Great position.
farmus21 - 2nd - 24/May/10 with Sam Hamer

This deserves 3 stars!! Better than Rimsky.

JulesV - Lead O/S - 23/May/10 with Shauna Cunningham

Got really pumped on this, had to dig quite deep. Fantastic route, feels steep at the top but like ksjs said good gear, although i found the big cam at the top really useful, easy to place (size 2-3)
Mike Goldthorp - Lead β - 22/May/10 with George Ulrich

Hidden - Lead dnf - 16/Jun/09

really good, 2 stars rather 1? easy start leads to technical bit (size 2 or 3 cam handy but not essential). pull into the bottom of the shattered groove and blast to the top - pumpy but positve. straightforward if you can recover on good holds. despite explicit mention of a 'large cam' in both North Wales Rock and CC guides, you dont need this - the gear is good from start to finish and you can lace the upper section if your arms permit.
