Duncan Beard 7 May, 2018 Lead dnf Felt more insecure than any other VS I have done, at every move. I bottled out before the steeper section at the top & traversed to Swan Crack. Lots of dry lichen on the break ledges, needs a brush!

buxtoncoffeelover 27 Sep, 2017 2nd Rosie bailed into Swan Crack, so I went up Noddy's on 1/2 rope (John cleaned Swan Crack on the other 1/2). Easy enough climbing, but only one dubious nut to protect the top half
