Hidden - Lead - 14/Sep/14

a joy to climb, classic!
hankyc - Lead O/S - 18/Aug/14

Was OK until the pull onto the top wall - a very powerful move.
AndrewP - 2nd dog - 29/Jul/14 with FelixPeterken

Top bolts are too rusted for comfort. Huge top move for me, but probably because i'm too small.
FelixPeterken - Lead - 29/Jul/14 with Andrew Peterken

bluesharper - Lead dog - 28/Jul/14 with Carwyn

Bolts in a poor state. Good climbing though!
Cheese Monkey - Lead O/S - 25/Jul/14 with Eric

OS putting the clips in. Excellent climbing. I would not want to fall on most of those bolts.
ericinbristol - Lead O/S - 25/Jul/14 with Cheese Monkey

Top 2 bolts very rusty, in much need of replacing!!! Makes the top crux moves scarier than needs to be!!
