Amazing climb! If you're in the area it's definitely worth doing, some really nice and quite technical climbing between good rests, just make sure you've got your head screwed on because it's pretty bold at the start!

Perfect conditions today. Went well. Great fun.
mattfarr - Lead RP - 05/Nov/14 with Andrew Pearson

Really cool climb but looks a bit scary now the first peg has gone.
Tom.Priestley - TR O/S - 05/Sep/14

Quite tricky moves to that peg without much gear, unless you clip peg on adjacent route.

Very nice climbing all the way but very scary to the first peg
matt30987 - Lead RP - 16/Jul/11 with Dad

Bottom peg gone so used cams near right arete
Adam Booth - Lead RP - 19/May/11 with Tim Evans

Hidden - 2nd rpt - 19/May/11

Brilliant wall climbing on good pockets! Definately felt bold E4 though - lowest peg has gone so cruxy reach up to the slopey ramp and clipping the peg above that is only protected by a poor cam.
Mike Goldthorp - Lead O/S - 31/Aug/10 with Laura Perry, alex mason

Felt pokey in less than favourable conditions.
Rich Kirby - Lead O/S - 24/Jul/10 with Nick Bullock

On Mark's gear.

bob johnson - TR - 28/Apr/10 with Al Borrett, Rich Ball

glad it was a top rope - great moves
AB1965 - TR - 2010

I had thought it was going to be scary as 1st peg at 6m looks very high, but I was surprised how well protected this route actually is, it is not very bold at all.
