Totally unique and great fun!
Hexman - Lead O/S - 19/Jun/13

Felt the climb was easy for the grade, although atmosphere and location added some exposure! The leaning column is probably a 4c direct but pushing from the side wall makes it much easier, although still fairly bold! Very fun! Rest of climb is fairly easy by comparison, not sure if final move was in right location, but felt in keeping with the rest of the climb and was slightly tricky. Despite rain showers climb was dry and very friction rich!

Quite necky but easy P1. Went left of left hand roof at top- nice well protected climbing but rather harder- maybe 5b
Bristoldave - Lead O/S - 04/Jul/12 with Caroline

Brilliant climb in an atmospheric situation. Some loose rock on pitch 2 but did not detract from the enjoyment at all for us. Sensational move onto the final steep wall.
LD - Lead O/S - 11/Jun/12

Found it pretty hard this time, but went the wrong way on the top pitch - don't traverse out to the arete and up as rock quality very poor. Too much loose rock on both pitches to be fun really, though the span itself is quite memorable....
Chad123 - Lead rpt - 19/May/12 with Emily

Lost the toss for the first pitch, got snowed on briefly at the middle belay. A grand route for my first HVS lead

Outstanding situation and climbing up the pillar - easy 4b. Top of pitch two surprising and exposed - 4c.

Cool, cool, cool. Exciting abseil, the integrity of the pillar is probably cause for concern. Bit of loose rock, blinding route - mind the ticks though!
Tom Last - AltLd O/S - 30/Apr/10 with Chester

Glad to top out, lots of loose blocks, amazing scenery in the zawn.
