Ky 6 Apr, 2018 Lead dnf Bit too keen and got benighted lol. Tied in just after the sun set, at half height had to slide left into gumshoe build an anchor in dying light then bail. Too dark to do the upper crack with its slight dampness. Will be back

Irn Bruce 10 Jul, 2010 Lead O/S Fine climb. Nice move with good holds over the overhang. The crack was a bit fiddly but not too hard to work out in the end. Temp was 27deg so didn't fancy the slopers at the top - instead opted to shimmy gracefully up the wider crack!
