Zoe Cockburn - Lead - 22/Jun/14

Hidden - AltLd O/S - 17/Jun/14

The guide calls it 'pleasant' and gives it only 1 star - I thought it was better, the 2nd pitch in particular gets steadily harder and more intimidating yet everything is there.

Hidden - Lead - 08/Jul/12

I lead P2. The first 2 pitches are scrambles with a hard bit at the top. The 3rd pitch is a bit more consistent. Still worth a climb.
gav - Lead O/S - 20/Jun/12 with Mark

Well undergraded in my opinion.
ChrisGreen - AltLd rpt - 20/Jun/12 with Simon, Ann S

Ann S - 2nd - 20/Jun/12 with Simon and Chris

Given grade of MS in the guide book. Very hard for the grade more like HS4a or even 4b at the top of the 2nd pitch, especially without chalk on the slopping polished holds, very off balance to place gear.
Simon Cahill - AltLd - 20/Jun/12 with ChrisGreen

My first thumbs down hand jam :)

Led 2nd pitch - great bridging practice but gear surprisingly awkward. First climb of the day and John stung by wasp which put paid to any more climbing. Beware wasp nest near start of second pitch.
