kermit_uk 16 Feb Lead O/S No side runners and no cheaty holds out left but still didn't see a 5b move on this at which point E1 5a as per BMC guide feels about right. The gear is tiny in soft rock though so consequences could be bad?

climberchristy 31 May, 2015 Lead β Ben had led this first and abbed off to strip it. So can't claim an onsight as I knew what gear to take. Fairly soft for E2 but probably just deserves it as it is very run out and any higher gear is marginal RPS or tiny microcams none of which you'd really want to fall on.

Reaver2k 7 May, 2009 2nd O/S Good climb, turned up late to the crag because I had nothing else to do with the rest of my day! Got here and Andy had just led up the connecting route so I decided to do this whilst I had the chance! None of the moves are too bad, but could just imagine them being frightening given RP's to rely on! None looked that promising to my untrained eyes! Top wall is a little bit green.
