Only very small wires for the first couple of meters, the largest of which fell out when I was above it. Excellent gear before the steep bit though. Probably hard for HVS.

Found it hard to read the rock as i'm used to gritstone. Gorgeous setting. Would like to return and try the hvs up the tall tower.

Hidden - Lead O/S - 16/Oct/11

An enjoyable route up the corner to a traverse, and upwards on good holds towards the roof. Positive holds up out right above the overhang and then mantel to the top. It says in the guide book that there's good protection; it could be that I couldn't find them or they're not there?!

Crux is at the very start, coming over the overlap at the end was sweet
chriscarroll - Lead O/S - 12/Jun/11 with Ben

First go at a HVS, and in hind site, probably should have picked something easier! Superflashpumped at the top and came of twisting an ankle in the process. I'll be back!

lead when still graded HVS 5a - very tricky moving out of the groove, protection is good but you need to work at it.

Did the variation from under the bulge to gain the groove on the right, 4c
