seconded Ben on this last year. Climbed today in damp conditions waiting for rock to dry so felt quite tough. Good little route - nicely varied.

Nick1812P - 2nd O/S - 11/Nov/12 with Jamie

nice crack, dirty at the top and the highland cows were more than a little close to comfort, being tied between those horns and a 10m drop isn't the most relaxing belay in the world.

Sgrit. Nearly fluffed the start.
petellis - Lead O/S - 12/Sep/10 with Cleric James Koran

Not what I was expecting, the intimidating crack is actually straightforward and rewards enthusiasm but the final streeeeetch is much bigger than it looks. A really good little route.

Andrew Sloan - 2nd O/S - 01/Aug/10 with Tony Holdsworth

take a freind 3.5 / 4 next time to protect the top section

vanderz - Lead O/S - 29/Jun/10 with Andrea

Hard work. Had to think about footwork initially and practice and then came off at top of route trying to stretch to reach over top.
andrea83 - 2nd dog - 29/Jun/10 with Chris

failed to lead, bottled top moves after faffing with gear
Pilch - TR O/S - 15/Jun/10 with Ed

good finger locks, and more for feet than first appearances suggest make a fine but but soft (at Curbar!) E1, probably worth a 2nd star!
