net - AltLd - 27/Jul/13 with George

Lead all three pitches. Great route, most of the difficulty is concentrated within about 10 meters of the second pitch.

alpinismo.uk - AltLd dnf - 30/May/13

Deb led first pitch and then pitch 3 of Gordian Knot. Pitch 3 proper looked one short move on slightly dirty rock then easy. Kev led pitch 2 - harder than it looks! I fell off trying first move but then started again and seconded it clean.

Nice
Exodus - Lead O/S - 24/Jul/11 with Tim Newton

Lead 1+2. Expected to have to battle but found only one hard move. Had to rearrange the gear to use the hold though!
greenroom - AltLd O/S - 23/Jul/11 with Matt Foot

Ran P2&3 together. Surprised to find nominal crux OK. Fat fingers probably helped in the jam. Found the start to P3 just as hard.
harold walmsley - Lead O/S - 03/Jul/11 with Colin Struthers

Hardest climb to date. Totally blown out on second pitch.

Seymore Butt - 2009

Great route, the first pitch is a nice slabby warm up, the second is excellent steep cranking with one harder jamming move (careful where you put the gear!) and the top has a tricky start and then more fun slab work. Great position...
Chad123 - AltLd O/S - 23/Aug/08 with Jo

Ed Babs - AltLd dog - 25/Jun/08 with Ed Luke

Jesus! What an epic. Did the second pitch with one point of aid before deciding to abb off due to quickly deteriorating weather and bad light. Managed to get out of there and got back to the pub in the pitch dark.
