Cheese Monkey - Lead O/S - 17/Aug/14 with Vienna

Worthwhile alternative to thetop two pitches of Left Hand Route. The traversing slab is quite necky and as you don't really know where to head and there's precious little gear. Well done Pete R.

Couldn't find ab station at top (where is it?). Ended up traversing a long way left and then abseiling off a small tree just over the rim.
stonemikey - AltLd - 13/Jul/13 with Mark Ward

Dave led the first pitch and me the second, which seemed hard to find and vegetated at top. Did it as a finish to Left Hand Route.

Soloed to reach the next ledge to start Swansong.

Climbed after 1st two pitches of Left Hand Route. Worthwhile finale with contrasting 1st & second pitches. Limited gear on second pitch.

Did after 1-3 of Nibleheim. Led First pitch, quite off balance with placements. 2nd pitch exposed slabby stuff. Decent route, with a good veriety of good value 4b challenges. Worth a couple of stars.

ian d f - Lead O/S - 14/Mar/10 with Grace Chuchla

This climb needs a good cleanup (assuming we didn't go the wrong way after the crystal corner). Pitch two is very overgrown - pretty much impossible to get to the rock under the foliage, so you end up grabbing a bunch of dead branches and hoping that at least one of them will remain attached to the ground! It would probably be a lot worse in the summer. Must remember the secateurs next time! Pegs mentioned in the guidebook are now lost in the foliage. Maybe this route could do with being described as part of a linkup in the guidebook to encourage traffic on it?
Chris Sansum - AltLd O/S - 30/Jan/10 with Gary Lewin

After pitches 1+2 of Left Hand Route. Unsatisfactory belay in the yew tree, which was virtually inaccessible due to undergrowth and electric fence.
Blisco - Lead O/S - 10/Oct/09 with Dovydas Urbonas

Twisty - 2nd O/S - 11/Sep/09 with Nigel Stock

Lovely finish to the Left Hand Route and well done to Nick for climbing it with the bag!
FayeG - 2nd O/S - 02/Aug/09 with Nikki

led 2, did after 1&2 of LH Route. Great route with some superb moves and more than its share of exposure. Mystery why no stars in guide book.

First pitch was some fun bridging up crystals followed by a nice exposed finish, second pitch quite bold with spaced protection, made a great finale to LH route.
