Wild setting. Great exposure.
petegruf - AltLd - 23/Aug/14 with nick k

Incredibly exposed, but great gear and easy climbing.
Matthew Glenn - AltLd O/S - 30/Jul/14 with Alex Cutbush

Led P2. Fabulous line and exposure. Felt tricky as rock was a bit soapy, and maybe I didn't jam properly.

vanderz - AltLd O/S - 18/Apr/14 with patrick dawson

Amazing line! Brilliant traverse over the zawn to start, and hard, exposed second pitch, but very well protected. Accidentally added an insitu cam on the second pitch though...
Alex the Alex - AltLd - 08/Mar/14

Lead 1 & 3, Not normally a fan of exposure, but lovely on this climb, particularly the P1 traverse. P3 felt like an out of condition Scottish Winter climb!
Robin Woodward - AltLd - Mar/14

Hidden - 2nd - 28/Aug/13

Dogged on the (wet) crux pitch which takes drainage, I discovered. An excellent, full-on route.

Lead 2nd pitch. First was a nice traverse, second was hard, greasy, exposed and terrifying. All in all a great route.
