cem 1 Mar Lead O/S A dangerous sandbag for VS. The upper section is tricky for the grade and very run out for lack of protection. A vegetated and dodgy top out to finish.

Andrew Sloan 27 Sep, 2015 Lead O/S This was poorly protected where it mattered and a complete sandbag for VS. I've climbed several easier E1s this season. Climbed as one long pitch; horrible top out.

smudge 6 Sep, 2010 Lead β Left a sling + screwgate at top of climb, went back for it after doing another route and it was gone... Cleaned this route a couple of years back, hadn't got round to doing it until now. Not bad.

Cake 4 Jun, 2010 AltLd O/S Led P1 but belayed just below the crux because it looked like a good stance. Should have done it properly.

bridget143 14 Apr, 2009 Lead O/S Upper pitch taken corner direct, this is at least 5a and the gear is rubbish for first 2/3rds of pitch so HVS would be fair.
