Great route, Stride across to the Ontos jug was tricky but the rest of the traverse was pretty steady. Probably my favourite route of the day.

Took a few looks to commit to the big step over. Worked fine once committed. The traverse is steady and well protected.

MoWalker3 - 01/Jul/12 with CJ

first route of the day, this is one to wake up the fear glands. Gibbered my way along the first part of the traverse until I calmed down a bit. The guidebook mentions standing on "the good hold on Ontos". I hope it didn't mean the one right on the lip, but the higher break line. Looks like I may be wrong though :-(

Hidden - Lead O/S - 14/Aug/11

excellent, a tough move to start the girdle (5b), made slightly harder by hot conditions. Think it is worth 2 stars.
Graeme Hammond - Lead O/S - 03/Aug/11 with Richard Williams

SteWatkins - Jul/11

Jim Slater - Lead O/S - 30/Jun/11 with Steve Carty

Probably the best pitch of the day. Certainly worth more than one star.
