Great route - managed it in 4 pitches as the belays on Thomson's Ledge and beneath the Lichen Chimney didn't seem too secure. Hard for MS - would have given the top crack a 4b personally.
Tom Hutton - Lead - 10/Aug/12 with steph

done in 3 pitches, led p2

gw3285 - 2nd - 24/Jun/12

Starting from ATL P1 is missed. I led P2 & 6, Colin ran P3,4 & 5 together. Superb climb, Again it was dry just hours after 3 days of heavy rain. Finishing crack on P6 is fairly spicy at the grade.
stratandrew - AltLd O/S - 24/Jun/12 with Colin Maddison, Gareth Williams

Hidden - 2nd - 29/May/12

Soloed P1. I lead pitches 1-5 in 1 pitch then colin did the last one. Lovely route.
James Oswald - Lead O/S - 12/Mar/12 with Colin Angus

Soloed P1, James led P2-5, led P6. Pleasant enough.

Dave Wearing - AltLd - 17/Apr/10 with Rocket

Rob Rocket - AltLd - 17/Apr/10 with Dave Wearing

Climbed with JD and Steve. Steve's first proper outdoor climb (and he was bricking himself). Route alright, the 40 foot corner is the best pitch by far. We did it as 1 (me), 2 (JD), 3-4 together (me). Could run pitches 1 and 2 together if you didn't put any gear in pitch 1.

Directly below abseil point, not recommended on a busy day got hit several times by ab ropes and nearly pulled off once when someones ab ropes got tangled in my ropes! Hope they remove the chain!

A little tricky to gain the start. Nice clean route, but the next to last pitch is directly below the ab chain.

Not sure of the actual route we did, just took a fairly direct line to the ab chain in 2 pitches.
Chris the Tall - AltLd - 30/Jun/08 with Woody

Started D Route and went to far left. Over corrected by going to far right and ended finishing on A Route. Led all pitches

Sarah R - 2nd - 20/Oct/07 with Greg Grace and Dave Smith

cherad - AltLd O/S - 08/Oct/07 with colin crockart

C started, I combined pitches 2+3, C led the 40 foot corner, I did Lichen 'Chimney' and belayed below the final crack as someone else was on it. Some nice climbing, but I can't recommend it on a busy day as it's directly below the bloody abseil chain, so you're in constant danger of having ropes, stones, climbers, etc, land on your head. The sooner the chain is removed the better.
Simon Caldwell - AltLd O/S - 08/Sep/07 with Carmen

Jimmy O - AltLd O/S - 22/Jul/07 with Jonny Taylor

Ran pitches 2-4 together. 40 foot gully was great. May have lost the route after that - possibly went too far left? Didn't find a decent belay at the end.
jonny taylor - AltLd O/S - 22/Jul/07 with James

Done in the rain, very challenging at the top! Brilliant day.
