split into two pitches, i lead first and belayed at the tree. backed off 6 or 7 meters above. seemed tricke and it was getting dark!
wjcdean - AltLd dnf - 20/Dec/14 with Trevers

Backed off a few meters after the belay. Not a bloody Severe so be warned if (like me) that's your limit.

Not sure it was the crack I climbed as pretty tough to see from the bottom and interpret the guide on this one. Bit too tough for Charlie unfortunately

Finally did this after epic HS Papillon adventure last time I tried it!

went up the wrong crack at the start. The top 2/3 make it a worthwhile climb

Done in two pitches: 10m and 30m. Quite hard for the grade, I think. Fun though.
Brian Moseley - Lead O/S - 04/Jun/13

The ramp was covered in brambles so we backed off.
jayyaj - Lead dnf - 02/Jun/13 with Mike Unwin

Got as far as the first ledge and found the 'ramp' to be entirely covered in brambles. Decided to back off rather than get completely scratched up. Also my mojo was very much missing having not lead (or in fact really climbed at all) in over 6 months

Poor 1st 10m (take shovel if you do it and remove sone of that sh*t), but very good top 30m. Hard for grade, steep with continuous 'interest'.
jmr - Lead - 26/Feb/12 with Paul Greenhow

ElvisLeg - Lead O/S - 10/Aug/11 with Frances Fox

When start was identified no major problems. Odd move felt about 4b, but friction was poor due to the heat. No issues at all with rope drag.

I thought this was though for a 4a Severe. Really enjoyable. not sure if my route finding was off. Some tough palming and bridging o pitch 3 (we did it in 3)

Hidden - 2nd rpt - 06/Nov/10

First long lead climb (40m). Harder than 'Severe' I think. Out of my comfort zone. Lots of cursing about 2/3rds of the way up. Pulse not back to normal till the evening.

martin one - 2nd - 28/Aug/10 with Neil Nand

Not a bad route but using the Climbers Club 2007 guidebook route finding is pretty damned hard, certain I wondered onto the HS next to it.

Poor description and huge rope drag. Split into a second pitch near the top.

Set up a belay 5m from top as rope drag was bad. Plus couldn't work out the move as the rain came in. Rog bless him brought up my waterproof and finished the climb off as I voted for an Ab.

Cracking climbing (excuse the pun!!) But quite thuggish and reachy. Used 20 quickdraws and rope drag was a problem - could possible be split into two pitches?? Think I went off route near the top and onto Pappillon (HS finish)

Either i went the wrong way or i have lost the touch but i found this hard for a S 4a as given in the new CC book. It was great fun though!

Went completely off route after the first section, upped the grade to about VS. Great fun though.
