Liam Ingram - 2nd O/S - 24/Mar/12 with Rob Askew

fine route. not as 'protectionless' or 'hard' as the guide would lead you to believe. led 1st and 3rd pitches

French Erick - Lead O/S - 17/May/09 with Alex Heude

led 2nd pitch. Did 3rd pitch as for Secretaries.
switch - AltLd O/S - 14/May/09

Great climb but a little dirty at top of first pitch . Some gear on second pitch, top pitch is best by miles....

burto - AltLd O/S - 19/Apr/08 with malc

An amazing wee adventure... to be done by a confident lead climber since a fall on pitch 2 would be extremely nasty. Only drawback is that the line is escapable at each belay (walking!)
French Erick - AltLd - 15/Apr/07 with Dave Kerr

Top pitch is well worth doing on it's own at E2 5c
