used the ledge. maybe easier than E1 with the ledge, or maybe that's the guilt talking. Techiest bit is the start (shared with green onion?)
KeithAlexander - Lead O/S - 13/Aug/14 with Sarah

Gutted i never got my solo onsight, really damp conditions made it to risky for the onsight so tossed a rope over did one top rope to clean holds then clean solo. Great little route and now it's super easy to top rope with the new railing. First route since being away from climbing for 4 months.
dmacmorris - Solo RP - 16/Jul/14

Direct Start? Laybacked the crack to gain the flake. Clean on 3rd attempt then rained off. Top-Rope solo (shunt)

did the direct start with the tricky layback crack, probably made it a lot harder. laughed a little when we looked in the guide book to see your meant to start on green onion haha.

Slipped a few times on this but got it clean eventually, maybe I am poor at laybacking. Very strenuous. Self Belay.
Denpov - TR RP - 09/Aug/12

Self belay. To tired for layback maybe, at end of day but will be back. :o) 2
Denpov - TR dog - 07/Aug/12

Euan led a direct start over (and using) the new sign. Dirty.

MonkeyDawson - Lead O/S - 20/May/12 with Simon Smith

Brushed before trying to lead it, but still very dusty in the crack.
gjd - TR dog - 05/May/12 with KM

Koon - TR dog - 05/May/12 with Geoff

Messy attempt, got clean to the flake then flailed and bailed onto green onion then bailed from that too as it's manky... The new sign does not make things easy... Could do with a right scrubbing if anyone's interested in this after the rock stabalisation
Nibs - TR dnf - 03/May/12 with Dave

Started on green onion. Traversed right to begin I-spy. Very sandy as builders have demolished routes on the quarry. Large warning sign saying beware falling rock. Got 3/4s up then burnt out. First time laybacking out side. Definately a pro climb.
pedrohawk - TR dnf - 06/Mar/12 with Graham

Used a foothold that could probably be considered part of the ledge so probably can't claim E2. A nice route though.
Brendan - Lead RP - 05/Oct/09 with John

Stepped left. Wank. Reasonable route though. Good jamming practise.
