joe hallam - AltLd O/S - 23/Jul/14 with will lord

A hard VS, with plenty moss in parts. Feeling exposed and unprotected for the leader especially for the traverse which leads onto a large partially unattached foot block of unknown strength! I couldn't see... Possibly bomber!

great climb. Better than slip not. Though dosnt look it from below.
Lee Sheard - Lead O/S - 10/Jul/14 with deb

Bit grubby on the proper finish but well worth doing it this way and will clean up with more traffic.

EBailey - AltLd O/S - 16/Jun/14

In one pitch. Nice climbing with commiting crux traverse. Finish was worth doing. Certainly can't see the point of escaping to the easy finish of Slip Knot

Led P2 with Roger. Really nice climbing. Thought the 1st traverse across was a bit spicy, then the move back across before the overlap was tricky too. Good route.

dprctr - 2nd β - 02/Jun/12 with Seb

Soloed the first pitch with Nick. The line is a bit indistinct once you're above the overhang and rock quality towards the top isn't fantastic.

Spent far too long trying to traverse out too high, but once got that right the rest was great. Finished up Slip Knot.
Tanya Savage - Lead - 11/Jun/11 with Neil Pacey

Finishing up Slip Knot makes it a much better overall route, deserves 3 stars.
Neil Pacey - 2nd - 11/Jun/11 with Tanya Savage

Much better climbing than what it looks like from the bottom, very nice moves across the traverse and up the centre of the slab, shame about the scrappy finish. I think finishing up Slip Knot would make it a better route.
Neil Pacey - Lead O/S - 07/Jun/11 with Max Biden, John Hollingsworth

Ken Taylor - AltLd O/S - 07/Jun/11 with Steve Livingstone

I lead the rubbish first pitch - nothing more than a scramble to the start. The second pitch was nice. Lovely setting.

Only really one pitch, first is fine to scramble. Some tricky climbing, with small footholds but eases with height. Quite challenging route!

Scrambled first pitch. Main pitch has a committing step out onto the main slab onto a small (but positive) footledge, OK once you make the move but certainly thought provoking. My first VS.
