Hidden - Lead O/S - 23/Jul/11

Very windy, very cold. Had to put gloves on halway up pitch 1 so that my fingers warmed up again so I could feel the rock. A bit of an odd route as one of the pitches seemed to be grass instead of rock!

slippery in places, a few worrisome moves. But a great climb for a less-than-perfect day.
smolders - AltLd O/S - 11/Jul/10 with Loic

went too far to the right and climbed a series of hideous crimps with micro gear, s made all the more challenging by the sucking rope drag. very easy to get lost on this one!

This is a sandbag at V.Diff: Hard Severe would be more realistic, and it's also much longer than the guide book suggests. A highly enjoyable outing none-the-less.

sass - 2010

Led P1, 3, 4 (and 5). Descemt is interesting off the back. VDiff!!!! After P1, maybe. Steep corner at least a Severe (scared, but enjoyed hugely). Although protection is bomber and exactly where it's needed. Rocky ledge a bit cramped for a long cold belay ... best trying to sit down. Final (sharks fin) pitch, a real classic.

leighjepson - Lead - Sep/04 with chris booker

Wanted to do Tophet wall but it was occupied by someone failing to do p1, so went round to do the bastion. Wind got up, had to abb off, inadequately dressed, getting hypothermic on belay.
