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.

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.
