Led 1 and 3. I found the bulge on p3 rather hard. Ugh. Quite tricky to get to it as well
abbeywall - AltLd - 12/Oct/13 with FM

third pitch bulge was bit of a fight.
JonmapDL - AltLd O/S - 06/Jun/13 with Jamie Sparkes

Lead P2. very stiff move to leave the belay and gain the ramp on small holds, then steady to a belay. Would possible recommend traversing into and out of the route 2 belay stance for greater comfort!

Bit off piste.

Not that amazing to be honest. Soft E1, the top pitch is probably almost as hard as the 5b one...
Duncan Campbell - 2nd - 04/Apr/12 with Fingers, Bubbles

Hidden - AltLd - Apr/12

Lead pitches 1 and 3. First lead fall on bulge. Will teach me not to hang around. Not as impressive as the other routes.

Led 1 + 3. Not as good as other routes in the sector but still v worthwile. Top pitch was quite demanding for me but some encouragement from Seb ( get up it ) worked well : )
jazzyjackson - AltLd - 28/Jun/11 with sebrider

Hard moves through the bulge on the last pitch
sebrider - AltLd O/S - 28/Jun/11 with jazzyjackson

Captain Solo - AltLd - 23/Jul/10 with Peter

Lead all pitches. The third being the best. Very thuggy at the final cracked bulge! Beautiful location and crag on a gorgeous Scottish spring day
