Wil Treasure 4 Aug, 2018 Lead A sneaky pull on the thread at the bottom. There's a good hold next to it though, so it's not really cheating, right?

Longsufferingropeholder 18 Jun, 2016 2nd O/S The peg's not really there any more if we're honest, and the top is choss stuck in mud. Kind of ruins it after the nice moves lower down.

mikeski ?Jun, 2016 Lead Great climbing at the start. Very mediocre after that. The peg is in extremely dubious condition and care is needed for the top out.

Mark Warnett ?Aug, 2013 Lead O/S Found this tough but really good and satisfying to get back into the E3s. Start felt a bit bold and very wet but soft sandy landing. Then really sustained and the crux for me was past the peg when i was nearly off, but i think i used a crap sequence.

ksjs 2 May, 2009 Lead O/S nice climbing slightly spoilt by top section ie completely overgrown necessitating a traverse left to exit via top of Shape Up. low down this feels eliminate and v escapable - you can virtually step into Beast... at any point but it soon sorts itself out with some nice moves left under the roof. 'easy' for E3 with difficulties being short-lived, not sure if its really 6a.

Onions 6 May, 2007 2nd dog Heavily dogged!! The start is very stiff with the footholds being slimy and there not being much for your hands. Once past the initial crux the climbing begins to ease, by the top finishing in 4c moves. Nice apart from the start.
