mike lawrence? 28 Apr AltLd Great route but sketchy start to pitch one. Continuously interesting. At top of pitch got shocked by the exit of what looked like a golden looking owl from a nest of four eggs so please don't climb till June to give them some privacy!

No? Yes! 1 Sep, 2017 Lead Exciting climb - varied moves on 2nd pitch. Agree with others comments - bold 1st pitch particularly up groove.Take secateurs for approach to base and thorny dangles at start of pitch 2

Bristol_Quornstar 11 Mar, 2017 AltLd O/S Range of climbing styles required including some weird body contortions on P2. Good gear is now available on P1, contrary to what others previously said. Approach needs a little gardening still. Agree with new (2017) guidebook upgrade to 5b tech.

georgeevans88 25 May, 2013 Lead O/S Lead both pitches. The flake mentioned in the guidebook on P1 is loose. As a result didn't use it and didn't think it would have taken gear. Best treat start as unprotected until the overlap. Great route. Classic traverse.

pheotleyr 29 Apr, 2013 AltLd O/S Led 2nd pitch. 1st pitch with an additional spicy traverse to remove Ben's off-route protection. 2nd pitch might only be worth HVS, at least if you don't think about the state of the pegs...

Cheese Monkey 29 Apr, 2013 AltLd O/S Lead p1, poor gear. Stepped right out of groove to find gear and take LH end of overhang. Traverse was tricky too, but much more gear

James Smith 23 Aug, 2012 AltLd O/S i led first pitch. wasnt as badly protected as the guidebook made out (still not great). room full of mirrors that gets hvs 5a seemed scarier the other day to me so dont know where that leaves this. I'd say soft e1 but if thats the case then RFOM should probably be upgraded.
