sophiecb - 2nd - 08/May/12 with Toph

Surprisingly pleasant technical route. Not hard but had to keep focussed. NOTE May 2012 : There is a crow (raven?) nesting at the top of the route with chicks. Avoid for a while or skip quietly out right onto ledges before you reach the wee tree, and belay as for Artho/Petes Wall
Dr Toph - Lead O/S - 08/May/12 with Sophie

'repulsive' is maybe a bit strong, but tough and tenuous.

got it clean this time and will be back to lead it when I get stronger! Defo better as a layback untill the very top
krasavenko - 2nd RP - 28/May/10 with Jamie Sparkes

BIRD WARNING: KESTREL NEST CURRENTLY AT THE TOP OF THE CRACK, JUST BELOW THE SMALL TREE. off balance and gear isn't easy to see if it is any good, apart from this its suitably technical and interesting.
JamieSparkes - Lead O/S - 27/May/10 with Liyen Nhuyen

In the dark . . .
rcammack - Lead O/S - 21/Apr/10 with Liyen Nhuyen

backed off after about an hour off misery ... still don't think it's bad climb - will be back!
krasavenko - Lead dnf - 21/Apr/10 with Robbie

Much MUCH nicer as a layback with a minimum of jamming involved. Climbed thus it makes for very pleasant moves and easy in the grade.
henwardian - Solo O/S - 22/Aug/09

Looked easy enough from below, but its far harder to stay in good balance than it looks.
kevg - 2nd - 06/Apr/09 with Fraser

Much more strenuous low down than I was expecting.
Fraser - Lead O/S - 06/Apr/09 with Kev

An awesome thrucksy struggle, very tenious in places, do it!
