Dom Goodwin 19 Sep, 2019 Solo Soloed the direct start and direct finish combo as it’s the only way I hadn’t led or soloed this before. Pleasant climbing, hard enough to be challenging but not too desperate.

Dom Goodwin 27 Jun, 2019 Lead Ordinary start / Direct Finish. Took a slightly different line at the top to when I seconded this - seems there is room for debate on the “correct” line, even for a minor variant! Trended rightwards through the hawthorns on the ledges (last good gear I found was hereabouts). Then moved up the steep slab on little ledges, feeling rather runout (not for the first time), before traversing a bit right to unconvincing runners. Then directly up through hawthorns, incredibly prickly, with rope manoeuvres to avoid entanglement, before topping out slightly further right than the previous time. Hint: stay left. Additional hint: don’t bother - the normal finish is much more pleasant!

danieljames123 22 Nov, 2018 Solo Bailed onto this after doing Petros through its flake, having decided to not continue solo onto the face/finish of Petros. Very convenient/straightforward bail.
