Jonathan Spooner - Lead O/S - 29/Mar/14 with Will Birkett

Did variation of this by starting up on the first pitch of the E3, then across on to the tritus junction with a lovely scary move. Adam mistook my shouting of 'Yes! There's a jug! as a response to him offering a rescue, which I had to later decline. I then carried on up tritus to complete the scariest, and best climb of my life. I also dropped a set of nuts early on making me feel stupid.

Neil Pacey - Lead O/S - 29/Sep/11 with Claire Sephton, Tanya Savage

Neil led variation - start on Tritus and finish up Protus as one pitch. Very good, steep but good holds. Not enough rope to use boulder a way back at the top for belay (50m).

Easily as good as Tritus. Great crux traverse out left. Although the fall potential was a bit worrying on that move.
Conan - Lead O/S - 13/Aug/09 with Peter Metcalfe & Steve Wray

Took line of Tritus for first bit, but it looks as though I missed all the fun of the traverse back from the tree into the groove.
