βeta: Check out the abandoned "lair" - the cave in the gully has a floor comprised mostly of animal bones. Btw, the descent can be done in one abseil if you have a 60m rope, and don't mind falling a foot or so (depending on your height, rope stretch, etc.).

βeta: The first pitch is a bit of a one move wonder. Due for rebolting?

stevelismore 8 Jan Lead O/S Two pitches but Mick did both together. For my turn I did first pitch ok but top pitch is a pile of loose shite with just a few rusty bolts so although I started up it I declined to finish it-abandoning a screwgate to get back down. Not recommended.

Oliver Haworth 5 May, 2018 AltLd O/S Lead the first pitch which has a couple of tricky moments. Anchor for the belay is slightly awkward would have been nicer to be further into the gully. Seconded second pitch and quite fun coming out of the gully but then over quite quickly. Abseil bolts and ring are quite rusty but it's back up by numerous bits of rope so is okay for now.

Jo Morrison 24 May, 2008 Lead O/S the fixed gear is not in great condition. The second pitch has 2 bolts for 22m! The abseil point has two hangers, one of which is almost bent over the bolt. If you can't ab down in one, the top of Zig-Zag is still quite a way to the right so a bit of a faff.
