Thought it was really hard for the grade.
JamesRich - TR dog - 29/Mar/13 with Paul Rich

Awesome little route, one of the best on lower tier for me, the rock is brilliant flowstone and looks like really nice gear
Mike Goldthorp - Solo O/S - 11/Dec/12 with Will, Adam

Had some beta and some in situ kit (a clip on the thread, and 2 wires out left) from Ricks go. Nice moves.

Doug miller - Lead O/S - 28/Oct/12

Ollie B - Lead O/S - 20/Oct/12 with D.Foster

Jumped on this straight after working Miss Whiplash - not a good idea, as I ended up too pumped for the final move. Very annoying, but my own fault.

lukewilliams - Lead - 10/Jun/12

Shameless top-roping.
Bobling - TR - 09/Jun/12 with Luke

Fingery as the preverbial. A couple of false starts off the ground. Solid climbing I felt as though I earned the grade :-)
puppythedog - Lead O/S - 19/May/12 with leigh

Kept falling at start and jarred back - doh! Not a good first climb for me!

My 1st E2, tricky start, nice climb but i was kind of glad it was short :D This is where we retreated to after torrential rain at shaun cliff... i still can't believe how quickly this crag dries out.
Tom Brierley Gore - Lead O/S - 11/Jun/11 with Shijing Hu

aged_ape - Lead O/S - 10/Jun/11 with IH

Did not start! Couldn't get off the ground, not enough finger strength.

DafSWMC - Sent - 03/Jan/10 with Stu, Christian

The upper half was quite damp, which gives me an excuse today
bpmclimb - Lead dog - 19/Nov/09 with Clare

Just to make doubly sure of the best way to do it. Will lead it the very next time I'm here and it's dry, or I'll eat my smelliest climbing boot.
bpmclimb - TR rpt - 19/Nov/09 with Clare

Fell off before clipping the peg, same as last attempt.
bpmclimb - Lead dnf - 27/Oct/09 with Clare

Top roped it clean a few times. Will now lead next visit.

TimPerkin - Lead O/S - 18/Oct/09 with Dave Gale

Very nice moves. Fell several times at the top but got it eventually! More friction when the rock is not in full sun. Peg and thread in good condition. Rock 7 & 9 useful in between.
