[Second Ascent of Over the Edge @ 77, 2 kb]Layback the right arete to runners under the overhang then move round the arete and access the thin crack; climb this with difficulty. Excellent and with decent gear, after the start. © ROCKFAX

Very dirty climb. Spent a long time trying to find the right sequence for the crux (then cheated a fair bit to finish it)

clarky - 2nd dog - 05/Jun/10

fell below the crux first time, lowered down and climbed it clean but without pulling the rope so still requires a return visit for the full lead. although there appears to be multiple sequences through both lower and upper cruxes I reckon its still feels a little harder than 5c
oliwarlow - Lead - 26/Sep/09 with mav

great moves all the way up. very commiting start and a bit of 'exitment' near top means the clean lead is saved for another day...
oliwarlow - Lead dnf - 12/Sep/09 with Dave W

clean with 1 rest on the upper face - start slab/arete is techincal crux, top crack/wall on rhs is stamina crux :(
Woodiee - TR RP - 12/Sep/09 with Dave Wilberforce

Quite dirty. Should've cleaned it first. Typical Simonside dirt. Very tricky slopers near the top. Will be back to clean the pitch.

Hidden - Lead dnf - 23/Apr/05

Both delicate and strenuous climbing. Chicken heads and ironstone inclusions for a high-stepping rock-over on the top wall. Great route.
