Superb climbing direct up the right-hand side of the crozzly wall. Only just enough bolts for a sport grade and not much other gear. © ROCKFAX

Clean second attempt. Bolts in the right place to protect hard moves, wires below and above make it feel much less scary though.

Safe enough with some kit to protect the first clip. Wire at the top too though it made the jam very shallow .

Very worthwhile... Have some stars.

Without wires. Thanks for the sandbag Pete!
Ally Smith - Lead O/S - 13/Jul/11 with Pete H

A bunch of wires for some excellent placements before and after the two bolts. Good fun as a mixed route (E4 6a).

Also would benefit from 2 more bolts, but it is OK in its current state.
Alex Mason - Lead O/S - 21/May/11 with matt burdekin, Sam Farnsworth, George Ullrich

Not done without wires before - felt spooky. Rested on 2nd bolt :( Sorted on next go with extended first bolt. Wires recommended for happy life on this.

Fell on the crux as I got my hands muddled up. Would like to lead but the 2 bolt situation is kind of sketchy.....maybe take some wires?

taking onsight as would not have failed first time with necessary gear. good, bouldery crux
ksjs - Lead O/S - 17/May/08 with anders

"dodgy" quickdraws and not having gear to protect last moves were at fault here
