Quality, a little easier then Witsend I think but not as easy to protect.

Got a bit lost at the bottom but ended up on the route ok. Loads of easy to place gear all the way up and 4 bits plus a no hands rest below the crux roof. Could be E1 5c really.

the crux on whits end direct is harder but this is slightly better

jordan taylor - Lead β - 31/May/14

Able to rest comfortably under roof, slippy hold for crucial right foot popped! Hung on arms and came down, had a think and tried again to gain the upper slab. Great position fine route. Stiffer than Whit's end direct. E1 gear.

Ventured onto Whit's End direct on the slab for a while. Managed to get 3 runners in above the roof before committing. Solid 5c crux.

Wicked climb! Tough getting past the overlap.
alexjz - Lead O/S - 28/Sep/13 with Matt Burdekin

One of the best routes i've done. Apparently you can get a nut above the over lap before moving up. Managed it with a lot of shouting

Andy Moles - 2nd rpt - 20/Aug/13 with Ferdia

just climbed whatever looked best until the crack leading to roof. gets a bit arbitrary staying away from whitsend direct otherwise. excellent climbing. just my style so it felt easy for the grade to me.

Enjoyed the lower wall, some thin moves which I just did. Pleased with managing to get up to the roof and getting gear in over the lip, but could not do the move over the roof. Not even after resting on gear or being thrown a top rope by Jim! Thanks for the rescue Jim!

Hidden - Lead O/S - 25/May/13

Found the first couple of slab moves pretty tricky. Steady to the roof then a strenuous use of knees to pass it.
Olli-C - 2nd O/S - 25/May/13 with Rachel Slater

Hidden - 2nd O/S - 25/May/13

An excellent pitch, with the 3 distinct crux sections. I found working out how to get onto the slab from the belay a little perplexing and without a great amount of gear but once established on the slab the pro is excellent - mixture of small/mid size wires and biggish cams in the horizontals. Run out technical crux on the slab and stiff pull round the roof on reasonable holds.
JamieSparkes - Lead O/S - 06/Oct/12 with Claire Holland

Hard move through the roof, needed a tight rope.

Hidden - Lead O/S - 21/Jul/12

Reminiscent of Silhouette on Cloggy which we did a few weeks ago. Slightly easier crux? Took a while to get a wire in over the lip before committing but it can be done. Such a satisfying pitch.
chrishedgehog - Lead O/S - 10/Jun/12 with Kieran Myles

Slab climbing not my thing. Bugged out onto F Route.
HIGHTOWER - Lead dnf - 27/May/12 with Danny Dunbar

Very hard move over the bulge, no way could I have led this
Andrew Lodge - 2nd - 26/May/12 with Dave

Great climb, but too hard for me. I need to come back at a later date and do it without resting on the ropes.
guhj - 2nd dog - 09/May/12

Looked like it was going to rain but decided to take a look anyway, expecting to bug out but the climbing was too good to stop.

Harder than Whit's End Direct on the overlap but with better pro, a wee bit trickier lower down too so maybe 1/2 a grade harder overall. A fine pair of routes, just my style, a third sets of nuts 2-4 useful on both.
Owen W-G - Lead O/S - 27/Jun/09 with Max

Couldn't get my lardy frame over the overlap on the 1st attempt. Another Gimmer classic!

Andy Moles - Lead dog - 11/Oct/08 with Burton

A really nice line, felt very ill however but good non the less. Would have felt like E1, if i wasn't ill and run out of the correct size of nut to protect the overlap. The Slab was spinning!
