Pitch 2+3. Quality route I'd wanted to do for ages! Shrub at top of pitch 3 is a no go for abbing off, pulling out the soil!

Malcolm Bass - AltLd - 07/Jul/13 with Andy Brown

Justin Shiels - Lead - 20/Jun/13 with Chris

I led pitch 1,3,5. Pitch 3 bulge does have positive holds but they're not always obvious so I had to go up a few times and explore, mindful of the gear being at foot level at the start of the sequence! Think the pitch deserves E2 5b ***! Very pleased and relieved to get up it!

David Smith - AltLd - 30/Jun/10 with Stuart Holmes

P1 (Fair game E1 as a pitch), then gave P3 to James as I didn't fancy it (couldn't read where the route was going and thought I was in for a horror show) and took P4 (probably the top pitch of stoat crack). Great climbing on good gear.
petellis - AltLd O/S - 23/May/10 with Cleric James Koran

Nice route though the upper section degenerates and drags on a little. For the grade: P1 felt hard but safe, P2 bold but steady, P3 steady but a little sustained and complicated.
jkarran - AltLd - 23/May/10 with Pete

Ran a couple of pitches together. Seemed to add the fun.
Ahab - Lead O/S - 15/May/10

First two pitches can easily be linked and nice thin crux move on the slab. Second pitch is not as runout as people say and top pitch is pretty dirty in places....
