gmuston 21 Apr Lead O/S HS 4a to be honest, or very soft 4b. Not as bold as the grade would suggest and worth it's star. Take plenty of small/medium sized wires. Managed to place 15 runners, 12 of which were pretty good/bomber, 3 of which were shite, the sound of your scream as you fall would be enough to remove them. The brave pioneers who went before me have cleared most of the looseness so pretty solid now. I'm a massive pussy and didn't think it bold/adventurous at all so must be OK right? Some of the holds are as close to an outdoor staircase as you will ever get. Get on it!

banjoDan 1 Mar Lead O/S Defined by Jim as 'adventure climbing'. Nice placements for wires up to ledge with bolt. Climbing to overhang is an enjoyable chimney, regular mid sized nuts complimented with similar sized cams protect it well. Some loose rock for last few metres, makes gear slightly less solid. Good fun.
