Hidden - Solo O/S - 27/Sep/09

2 folded bouldering mats helped, but it was still a jump!
Jonathan Hall - Solo - 19/Sep/09

Jump! if you slip the bottom hold will rip up your hands. Great route with easy finish after the powerful start
disturbed_one51 - Solo - 19/Sep/09

Started up Ammo, hand traverse out to route start. Great climbing.

Graeme Hammond - Solo O/S - 11/Mar/09

direct via long reaches!
Graeme Hammond - Solo rpt - 11/Mar/09

Traversed in from the left. I'm definitely not tall enough to start directly!!
BeccaSnowden - Solo O/S - 11/Mar/09 with Tom

Started up a bit to the left and traversed out to the arete.
thomasadixon - Solo O/S - 11/Mar/09

Traversed in from left with some nice moves, swing along break, feet underneigh, right hand up for good hold, then feet up and stand up. Top section has some slightly worrying slopers, climbed mostly slightly on the left face.

My first ever lead fall, I kept going higher and higher expecting there to be gear & easier climbing (because it's 'only' VS) but there wasn't, and it didn't. Peeled off and decked out. Fortunately hobbled away with nothing broken.
