First pitch is so vegetated we thought we were off route- its awful. A far better option would be to take a direct line starting under the rib of pitch 2 or start at the ledge where Chic starts and move up leftwards.The 3rd pitch is excellent- airy and exposed and plenty of gear but you have to look for it and arrange carefully so not a pitch for a newbie. Half ropes were very useful on this pitch.

Mo lead first route then me and sarah alternate (so only one pitch for me)

First pitch VS 4c. Pitch 3 very good devious wall climbing.
Rog Wilko - AltLd - 14/Sep/08 with Debbie Wilkinson

Climbed in the rain. Took more pitches than we thought it should have - at one point we thought we were on the wrong route! A weird but fun climb. First two pitches definately the most challenging, but some gorgeous slabs later. Still good in the wet.

King Smudger - AltLd O/S - 10/Jun/08 with Matt Cox

Very straight forward climbing. Most interesting bit is the small overlap at about 5 meters.

I lead pitch 1 and 3. Terrible route. No obvious line with the first pitch very overgrown.
