Lead P1 - felt bold and a bit tenuous but the gear was all there. P2 was a struggle... However, a very good route as a whole.

Again, anyone who awards this thing ** needs to get out more. It's called perspective. Pitch two rather hard for 4b!
Ian Jones - AltLd O/S - 18/Sep/11 with Tim Clarke

Hidden - 2nd O/S - 15/Sep/11

Not HVS as it is not bold in the lower section, a well protected route.
jonnie3430 - Lead rpt - 01/Sep/11 with Danny, Prakesh

Hidden - 2nd rpt - 20/Aug/11

First pitch can be protected by small wires and cams with one reachy move. The crack is classic thrutch.

Led pitch 1. Gear much better than the guidebook suggested. Laybacked the crack which was fine until it came to having to having to remove Mike's sling from the checkstone!
