Charlie Zephyr Booth 20 Jul, 2017 Lead O/S this is a quality route that is sadly not getting climbed enough, an arquard thrutch up the start of the chimney and then well protected steep climbing up the groove, nice slab to finish

Tom McCabe 12 Aug, 2015 Lead O/S Hahaha. Found it a bit more adventurous than expected, something to do with having placed all my gear half way up the main pitch. Sections of fantastic climbing.

James Oswald 1 May, 2011 Lead O/S Nails for VS??!! Very hard V shaped chimney. Lead 2nd pitch. Went up the wrong way up the groove of. Think I went up the wrong way and lead up a HVS corner to a groove with little gear. Scary.

cmsg 14 May, 2006 Lead dog Hell of a solid VS. Quite an emotional experience! Took a while to find the nice, non-thrutchy approach to the start of the chimney on pitch 2 (BETA!: start up slab on left, lean across chimney and palm on other side, the rest will come to you.) Inexplicably slipped after placing hex in back of chimney :( Fab route nonetheless.
