Led P1 after bottling it a year ago... easy climbing but not much protection. P2 was Joseph's (maybe his 8th ever trad lead!). Think the one star comes from the fossils at the belay, not really the route.

Very run out first pitch, would probably hit the ground for most of it, and a fairly hard but better protected second pitch. So overall felt more like a VS than a HS.

Nice, but nothing too special.

Led both pitches, overall despite relatively easy climbing I thought that it was a rather bold route I placed a total of 5 runners on both the pitches (3 on the fist one and 2 on the second) would have done RR aswell although a party that evening meant we had to get the bus back at 4pm (Also we found a dead fox on the decent)

1st (dodgy) pitch. Simple enough but likely to hit the deck if you make a mistake. Good effort on the surprisingly hard second pitch (mantel shelfing)by James. Thanks for not falling and landing on my head which would have been likely due to position of belay

Two very different pitches made for a really good route with the bold first pitch led by Rob and the 4c pitch led by me. Wouldn't have liked to lead it when HS was my leading limit.

Really enjoyed this little climb with a great blend of climbing styles and moves on very grippy rock. Something for everyone on this route and having a great lead climber makes it even better :)

Really enjoyed this and felt the grade is right though not sure the hardest move was 4c. It did seem a hard climb to be tall on, climbing the corner would have been easier if my knee hadn't hit the wall. No issue with the belay, nor the protection on the corner above, just clip the top piece on leaving the belay.

Hard for HS, but i dont think it merits the same grade as the nearby Rockers' Revenge. Not sure what the fuss about the belay is - i got two bomber nuts plus the old peg. And crux was fairly well protected with micros and a small tricam (or cam).

I led 2nd pitch. Nice moves, but not a lot of very convincing gear on the difficult corner, and the belay could be better. Placed loads of micros that probably wouldn't hold body weight. I think the hardest moves are on leaving the stance, yet you are looking at a factor 2 fall. Added to the seriousness of the traverse on P1, I think this is pretty stiff at HS.

mullermn 22/May/10 AltLd O/S

I lead p1, Monkey did p2. Nice climb, not much gear. Not sure that the ab tree is still in place - nothing up there I'd be willing to ab on. Did a horrible loose green friable dog shitty scramble across to the base of Giants Cave Buttress instead.

Excellent rock compared with the Sea Walls polish etc. Led first pitch, easy but gear really needs seeking out. That spike at the start of the traverse isn't long for this world. Dan led 2nd - series of interesting moves. Crux location depends on your skill set.
