Dom Goodwin 4 Jul 2nd Straightened out Nightmare by taking the direct start (continuing upwards rather than traversing left, which felt tough for HS 4b) and direct finish - couple of really thin technical moves with very little for the feet, but mostly easier.

Chloe Clear 17 Nov, 2018 AltLd O/S I did the first and last pitch not meaning to do the direct finish in the right hand side corner. It was pretty run out but really nice bridge climbing

Rp20 9 Dec, 2017 Lead O/S Took the variation start leading up to the bloc (at HS in the book, full value for the grade). Ended with the corner, lovely climbing. Looked straight up to the overhangs. Looked fun so starte pulling over, but gear started to move the wobbly blocs, so decided to follow the easier scramble. All in all, brill time had :)
