Brilliant route, cruised past the section that is also on Evel Kenivel that i fell of on my last visit.
hutchay - Lead O/S - 13/Jun/14 with Miriam Billig

barni - Lead O/S - 12/Jun/14 with Ami

Interesting route with some exposed climbing on steep crimpy holds.
gavinpeach - Lead O/S - 31/May/14 with Max Pendleton

A lot of up and down around crux. Indefinite line and lack of gear lower down adds to uncertainty. Cracking route however.
freemanTom (Guildford MC) - Lead O/S - 24/May/14 with Stuart gmc

Good, last few moves are brutal!
sparkass - Lead O/S - 21/May/14 with Iain Steele

steely - 2nd - 21/May/14 with duncan campbell

I found this a bit thin. Got a decent rock 2 in at the crux (I think it was the crux) but then couldn't work out the next moves. Think I should of gone left more!

Sam Simpson - 2nd O/S - 26/May/13 with Tom Doldon

Felt a bit E2ish to me, spooky to start hard to finish, odd atmos as I dithered unconfidently beneath crux while 2m to my right a team of 3 were having a jolly time belaying in the corner

Excellent climb. Good holds take you up and left to a resting ledge above the crux. The purist will shun these and move up and right. Must try this on the lead.

Finished straight up at the top in the sunshine, much more logical than the dirty thin crack to the right! Lower section is spooky to start with some interesting gear but excellent climbing all the way...

Backed off the crack on the last 4 metres and finished up the last bit of Ardus instead. Really enjoyed the mid section despite alot of faff.
Jake Young - Lead dnf - 30/Apr/11 with Miriam

slighly marred by artificial traverse right on Ardus - but the moves up from the right hand end of the traverse are exquisite
