Lovely climb, led pitch 1. Abbed off after pitch 2
Fiona Reid - AltLd O/S - 12/Aug/12 with Mike

Lead 2nd pitch. A bit runout but low in the grade. 50m ropes just reach safety to the left of the start if abbing off.

Tom led P1, I led P2 (but think I went a bit off-route, never got ``forced left'' as per guidebook), Jason led P3.
stuaart - AltLd O/S - 30/Aug/10 with Jason King, Thomas Smith

Lead P2. Can see why people ab off after this as it's definitely the main event, much easier top pitch. Wet on top of P2 which felt quite tricky at the grade when damp.
isi_o - AltLd - 25/Aug/10 with AJ, Donas

donas - AltLd - 25/Aug/10

Led pitches 1 and 3. Good second pitch but 1st and 3rd not great. Drew choked on midgies all the way up the 2nd.

Hidden - AltLd O/S - 22/May/10

If the second pitch of this was on an urban outcrop it would easily get ***. As it is, it's sandwiched between crappy pitches in a beautiful mountain setting and gets only **. You're onto a winner. Equipped ab station with maillon.

I led the final pitch. Steve had a superb lead for pitch 2.
errrrm? - AltLd - 18/Apr/09 with steve and john

Onsight lead of pitch 2, 50m rope just enough to belay from below the large boulder and tree, 60m rope would have been ideal.

crossdressingrodney - Lead O/S - 20/Aug/07 with victim of mathematics

Climbed in walking boots - a good route with adequate protection (more than some routes on the crag).
RobScotland - AltLd O/S - 19/Aug/07 with Derek

Excellent 2nd pitch but the rest was a bit rubbish. I led the even numbered pitches, C led the rest.
