Gambit - Lead O/S - 27/Sep/14 with Mark Leicester

pleased to get it first. pumpy if you try to place gear, easier to just go for it.

psborland - 2nd - 09/Mar/14 with Marc

A great little route. Spent a lot of energy rearranging the small pro lower down so had to fight hard to top it out cleanly.

will_benfold - Lead β - 21/Jul/12 with Aeron Buchanan

A good climb, with a lovely unusual move for grit past the under cut. Found the well protected upper wall the crux and possibly 5c as others have mentioned.
Graeme Hammond - Lead O/S - 20/Jun/12 with Pete Wimbush, Jim

Rich Kirby - Lead O/S - 12/May/12 with Ruth

Oliver Houston - 2nd - 05/May/12

Top bit of fist / arm jamming left me flummoxed, so finished seconding up crack on the left.

pie_eater_pete - Lead O/S - 28/Oct/11

Lead with pre placed gear due to failed attempt. Well protected crux. Techy climbing to filthy fistjamming to a bit more techy stuff. Awesome!

Painful handjams, hard moves.
odox - 2nd dog - 05/Apr/09 with Karl Wood

Hidden - Lead O/S - 05/Apr/09

Hardest 5b moves i've ever encountered- more like stiff 5c - start is a v3-4 problem in itself!

Very nice move through the cave but pumpy reaching the top. parts of the upper breaks are good some are not.
Dan Lane - 2nd O/S - 29/Nov/08 with Chris Weedon

SecretSquirrel - 2nd - 18/May/08 with adam carless

A climb of two halves, bottom bit is fingery and cunning, top bit is burly slopers. Placing gear in the good break isn't easy if you're short (but it's bomber).
