xusa - 2nd O/S - 16/Nov/13 with John jones

Lead chossy first pitch. Bit of a palaver belaying Frieze from both sides on the excellent traverse.
freemanTom (Guildford MC) - AltLd - 29/Sep/13 with Tries, Mike CMC, Amy Till

rubisco - AltLd O/S - 29/Sep/13 with Purely

Led first and third pitches. First one pretty hard going for a mod. Climbing straightforward but hard to find places for gear and pretty chossy in places. Worth it for the actual traverse which was great fun.

Hidden - AltLd - 12/Jun/13

only a mod? hardest mod i have done, fantastic route, traversing the crescent is amazing!
Wesley Orvis - Lead - 26/May/13

Loose poorly protected first pitch not a lot of fun, but the traverse pitch was brilliant. Complications of bringing 3 others up and badly extended runners led to a nightmare at 2nd belay, followed by a worrying grassy top pitch with limited gear. Definitely an adventure, descended in fading light!
mattwilk - Lead O/S - 06/May/13 with Neil

with tom hall, the lack of gear on the first pitch and exposure of the traverse makes for a very interesting mod! great route, done in trainers and the rain.

Leading good first pitch (35m), Paul led up to start of traverse. If that traverse is a moderate, then i want to upgrade some other stuff! I lead traverse and remainder.
themightyblues - AltLd O/S - 10/Sep/06 with Paul Derrick

Easy climbing but with all the feel of a big mountain route. Done in 3 pitches. At the stance of pitch one the crescent traverse looks intimidating but it was a doddle. A great fun big mountain scramble!!
