We picked this as an escape rather than ascending the path. Probably not the wisest choice but it was good fun none the less.

VERY Bold..! Surely should be at least E2 with only 2, poss 3 pieces of gear in 40m..!
Ian Andrews - 2nd O/S - 16/Oct/11 with Norman Clacher

First protection was 7 metres from the ground (small sling around a small flake), and the next piece was a dodgy nut (Yellow DMM offset) at 18 metres. I then placed at last a medium cam 25m from the ground, before starting the Richard of York finish. The minimal choice of protection makes it harder than E1, but the technical grade is definitely a 5a in my opinion.

Hidden - Lead O/S - 23/Aug/11

Finished up the Richard of York way. Obviously bold but very steady moves between large ledges. Felt hard 5a to me in places really, but I think it's deceptive because of how much pressure there is. Seconds shouldn't try to grade it!
