Hidden - AltLd O/S - 08/Sep/14

Ground up. Had tried this with Henry a few days previously but thwarted by terrible conditions. Slightly easier today but still very greasy and seeping - should have waited for better connies really. Fantastic crux and 'spooky' P2. Fairly sure I could have onsighted this but oh well. Led P1 and P3

soph - AltLd O/S - 01/Jun/13 with Helena Robinson

Fell off at crux 2 years ago. Felt good to smash it today in super greasy conditions. Groove pitch is an ace E2/3 5b.
Alex Mason - Lead β - 09/Apr/13 with Fingers

just a couple of greasy holds near the top of the chimney. thought the 2nd pitch was worth e3 on its own.

keefe - 05/Jul/86 with Johnny Adams

Only just made it to the stance! Followed Parky up Positron next.
Chris Craggs - Lead O/S - 1980 with Graham Parkes

Lead the first pitch with the standard aid of the time (and hated it) - Mick used the same situ sling and swung into space as it broke! Second pitch looked desperate & we were both spooked - decided to give up (and secretly never wanted to return).
