moberg 20 Jul Lead dog Dynamic start—jump for the jug to gain the ledge—then strenuous moves through a series of ledges with overhanging rock above that pushes you out—which is where I rested on the rope a couple of times. At the ledge below the top section I couldn't quite bring myself to attempt the direct finish up thin cracks, so opted to go right, taking the Bird's Nest top-out.

Rob_Morris1996 7 May Lead dog Great little start. On the awkward little groove, I mistook a sloping flowstone ledge for a big jug, and was off, came swinging back into the cave in spectacular fashion. If anyone would like to know, the gold nut now in situ is bomber, we could not get it out with the tools at our dispense. Top of the route isn't a pushover either!

Alkis 24 Aug, 2013 Lead β Led it on Olly's gear, after he took a fall on the last move. It kinda looked like a hold broke off the crack and we went straight up, which didn't quite feel like a VS, to be honest.
