wish the guidebook had mentioned the looseness of the route. Would be a nice line if you could trust the holds.
Dr Toph - Solo O/S - 10/Sep/13

Tough route (too tough for me to lead , brill effort by Ian) We ran out of light after the first pitch and had some "fun" getting ship shape LOL !!!

Hidden - Lead O/S - 22/Jul/13

Went off route on 2nd pitch. Stumbled in to some very loose and very big flakes, close one. Ensure you aware of the root before starting out!

s.c.white - AltLd O/S - 13/Mar/11 with tim, joe shippcot

Lead second pitch. Went easier way up as it was very loose and bad gear so didn't risk it. Pulled a huge rock off.

selman - Lead O/S - Nov/08 with Fip Tonkins

I had to traverse right to safety on second pitch instead of upwards, seagulls were attacking me. I think the route went through a nest, I guess its nesting season!
