Madden - AltLd O/S - 07/Sep/14 with Eugene McMahon

Chose not to lead main pitch and regret that now, found it OK - should have read my own comments from last time which were "moves OK - one to lead some time". Doh! Have now led second pitch twice. Cannot really see a groove, but there is a line or lines composed of clean holds with gear opportunities, if you've seconded the first pitch you can lead the top pitch in a few minutes and then theres an easy walk down.

Lead 1st pitch. Bold and brilliant. Probably the best i've ever climbed. As Dad used to say, I was in the zone.

Liam Ingram - 2nd O/S - 27/Apr/13 with Robert Taylor

Felt hard, found no more gear around the second peg. Done as one pitch, probably about 52m? Had to employ a flying heel hook move on p1 to escape the groove, with that awful peg watching me the whole time. Harrowing for belayer.

Will Hunt - 2nd O/S - 15/Sep/12 with Ralph Burden

Fell at second peg. Bit awkward getting to the massive jug on left side of the corner. Not too bad when you don't spazz on the crux. Take lots of small gear or it could get messy.
Dave Foster - Lead - 13/Jul/12 with Robin, Si 2

Hidden - 2nd O/S - 13/Jul/12

Led on Daves gear. P2 was very poor. I managed to clean out two gear placements from the mossy wall, but I'd suggest ab'ing off after P1 unless this gets a good clean.
robin_hackney - Lead O/S - 13/Jul/12 with Si, Dave Foster

run together pitches, nice route!
Tom Keaveny - Lead O/S - 20/Jun/12 with mfisher

In one pitch, some great moves on the 1st pitch, 2nd pitch needs a bit of a clean

A nice route though pretty full value for E1, bold, thin start and then two tricky cruxes though the gear near the hard bits is excellent fortunately! Pegs should be removed.....
