Top groove has now been retrobolted. New bolted abseil station to the right of the dodgy one.

Finished up stammheim
Cheese Monkey - Lead O/S - 15/Apr/14 with Iggy

The bit getting to the third bolt was too polished / hard / my arms were pumped out / I don't know what happened but had to rest a couple of times and then laboriously got to the top of the wrong route about an hour later.

Top-roped this back when it was a trad-route. Now with 3 additional bolts on the lower half it's a reasonable 6b sports route. Not hard unless you miss the obvious hold (that's what I did when top-roping last time).
pheotleyr - Lead RP - 05/Apr/14 with Alex Roberts

this would appear to share the top section with the newly bolted 'no crag for old men', which I had already climbed as my preceding route. Foolishly decided to go to the top again, but not enough left in the can to do the final moves.
hms - Lead - 26/May/13 with Jenny

Fluffed it on the first go trying to get to the second bolt (two duo crimps anyone?) but got it clean after that. Went right at the top and ripped a double fist sized block out near the top.
squicky - 2nd rpt - 12/May/13 with Tom

I really like the start on this :P climbed an alternative line after... joining it to "Stammheim" on the right, so you end up with a diagonal line of bolts, ends up being a mostly separate climb sharing only the very top of Stammheim if you keep left. There seem to be extra bolts there, so not sure if this is an intended alternate route or these are just redundant far reaching bolts for Stammheim?
Tom Brierley Gore - Lead rpt - 04/May/13

seemed technically quite a bit harder than its left and right neighbours, but interesting, good climbing.
pheotleyr - TR dog - 16/Aug/12

Climbed as a trad route with the spaced bolts on the lower half. As top flakeline is now retrobolted so I chose to ignore the bolt by the only wire, on the whole route, and also the last bolt, clipping the adjacent old peg instead. Thought it worth E3 5c in this style.
Jon Didymus - Lead RP - 03/Aug/12 with Josh

Pretty solid for a NQ route.
Richard Hall - Lead O/S - 30/Oct/11 with Chris Savage, Ollie Benzie

Had lowered off the bottom bolt sometime last year on a pretty half-hearted attempted. Lower off is fine I reckon. 2 oldish bolts tied together with a whole lot of bits of tat.
