Conan - Lead - 16/Apr/11 with Pete Glasper

Had to do this one - pull over the bulge is 4c or high 4b, quite daunting, near the deck and difficult to place bomber gear so make climb VS I think

Steve Hill - 2nd O/S - 31/May/10 with EeFu Thong

Sandbag!
Shaw Brown - Lead - 13/Mar/10 with cliff brown

Looks easy from below, but the thin gear made me feel a bit wobberly in my trainers...
Alex Thompson - Lead O/S - 13/Sep/09 with Gareth Morgan

Don't expect protection and you won't be disappointed.

Hidden - 2nd - 09/Oct/08

A really nice varied little route. Much better protected than suggested below if you look around.
Rog Wilko - Lead - 09/Oct/08 with Andy Bruce

Worthwhile lower half. Cornflake city at top. Take all your small nuts & RPs.
Scott McRae - Lead O/S - 21/Sep/08 with Tim Gledhill

Only a couple of bit of gear on the whole route.

ioboy - Lead - 29/Sep/07

Theeni - Lead O/S - 29/Aug/07 with Matt Kemp

Placed very little decent gear. Hamish reckoned my only good gear was a cam at about 4m. Rotting dead dog at the bottom didn't add much to the experience
jonny taylor - Lead O/S - 06/May/07 with CaptainH

captainH - 2nd O/S - 05/May/07 with Jonny

MVS haha! Very bold 1st 20'. Crux is stenuous and protected sort of by #2 wire and dodgy sling! Still pleased I kept my head and did it.
