tide coming in no time to lead it :(
jackc - TR O/S - 23/Sep/14

Jumped off a couple of times not wanting to commit to crux. So top-roped it twice then led it
clams - Lead RP - Sep/14

jamie d - TR RP - Sep/14

Very well protected. Couple of very low-friction footholds around the mid-height crux.

CLyus - TR - 23/Nov/13

JDG2428 - Lead - 31/Aug/13

Soft - good gear, solid rock and the moves are pretty straight forward; certainly not 5c imo!! Great route though :)

beakerburgess - Lead RP - 19/Jul/13 with mathew riordan

Again - Neil got it this time, was surprized with the amount of bomber gear on this
Matt88 - 2nd - 19/Jul/13 with neil burges

Attempted to lead with no success but did it fine on top-rope was gutted as felt as though route was within my capabilities
beakerburgess - TR - 06/Jul/13 with mathew riordan

After neil top roped it, timed perfect with the incoming sea
Matt88 - 2nd - 06/Jul/13 with neil burges

David Walker - TR dnf - 23/Jun/13 with Jonathan Whiting

Jon led and then we all followed. Gear had been stripped by my turn. One rest as legs were pumped and shaking uncontrollably. Nice route - the holds are all there, but they're not always particularly reassuring or comfortable!
MariaT - TR dog - 23/Jun/13 with Andy, Jonathan Whiting, James Carpenter, David Walker

Hidden - Lead RP - 30/Nov/12

Enjoyable. Gear takes a while to put in, but there are hidden jugs every so often that relieve the nerves!

simo540 - TR O/S - 29/May/11

matt.woodfield - Lead - 16/May/11

Jake Young - TR dog - 10/Apr/11 with Libby

JamieGreig - Lead O/S - 27/Jan/11

Hidden - 2011

rhysllyw - 2011

Superb balance climbing up thin cracks and crimps with very little for your feet. Must try to lead this if I ever return. An easy 5c I thought.

mattshort - TR RP - 27/Aug/10 with Elly Pryce

mol - 2nd - 27/Jun/10 with Jesse

TR the day before, got dark before I couldn't attempt the lead (with pre-placed protection). Returned and lead (placing gear) as the tide went out.

Ewan Richards - Lead dog - Jul/09 with SianR

Very greasy, had to rest on cam below crux and then ran it out a long way, really nice route
Flash29 - Lead dog - 11/Oct/08 with Olly and Jamie

Rock Fairy - TR - 27/Sep/08 with david

Done with odd boots due to the pain in my feet
Chris the Tall - Lead O/S - 20/Jul/08 with Liz

Couple of rest, but did all the moves
IggyLiz - 2nd dog - 20/Jul/08 with Chris

Top roped this after Simon Chetwynd fell off (also on a top rope). Managed it clean (much to his annoyance). A very balancy climn requiring some fairly painful tony toe holds.
