Hidden - AltLd O/S - 02/Jun/12

Led crux - good but short. P3 also good. Led a 4th pitch to get to crest after we went a little off route. Marred by crummy descent.
niallk - AltLd O/S - 30/Jul/11 with Steven Harris

Led p1 and p3. P1 had lots of loose rock. P2 had a good but short crux. P3 was ok but went off route at the top of it trying to identify where we might be able to descend. Ended up doing a 4th pitch then having to pitch across left and downwards due to steep scree to eventually gain an exit into no. 4 gully. Guidebook description of the descent is rubbish.

Minor route finding problems for the last pitch. I basically messed it up...

Slightly better than Strident Edge, more solid rock.
Captain Solo - AltLd - 22/Jul/11 with Gary

Not very enjoyable due to the loose rock.
