Really easy up to the last move, which seems really hard, but when you lean back and bring heel up hen grab a crim, it's not too bad. Good fun

We climbed outside route so decided to use the same belay to have a go at top-roping this, as I was not sure about leading. Now I'm sure. I can't lead this really. Seems Wharncliffe grades are harder than average (or it is just my impression).

Bit off a bit more than I could chew today ! Couldn't figure out the last section, eventually escaped via Outside route

Juggy, thuggy, tricky move to gain the top

Alex Thompson 26/Jun/11 Lead O/S

Big holds and quite big moves.

Kev's lead. Had to go up and down it a few times to get the move. Nice climb, but not the best for a warm up!!!
