Graeme Hammond 29 Sep, 2018 Lead O/S Not as good as I had hoped for, quite hard for VS with more loose shale on the top out, and fairly grim setting make for a classic Lancashire route.

Antony Mariani 25 Jun, 2017 Lead O/S Great climb. Didn't feel short changed at the new grade of HVS, 5a. Full use of bridging may decrease the difficulty, but as an onsight for a VS leader, it feels HVS!

The Norris 18 Jul, 2013 Lead dog Rested on gear a couple of times but persevered. Made a bit more tricky by sweating my bodyweight in water. VS 5a for me, the ledge of the bulge is currently covered in soil/stones and brambles etc. Oh yes and i kicked half my gear out and got my foot tangled round the rope going over the overhang! fun!?!
