RoseDafoe 1 Mar Lead O/S One of the bolts on the third rappel anchor from the top (second from the bottom) is so loose you could pull it out with your hand. Hopefully it will get replaced soon but in the meantime you need to be happy rappelling from a single point. On the third pitch there is one of those Rocklands bolts which have since been withdrawn, and on the final pitch one of the nuts is loose. Rock is great though! Loved the slab.

tom_drysdale 1 Apr, 2016 AltLd O/S Great climb with an amazing view at the top. First 2 pitches are sparsely bolted but very easy, the last pitch is great fun! The 2nd abseiling point has a very loose bolt so skip this if possible!

Teappleby 1 Apr, 2016 AltLd O/S led pitchs 2 & 4. First 2 were usual slabs, 3rd was cool, also a good effort from Olga to lead it (despite some very interesting noises as she went through the overlap!). 4th pitch was lovely! Abbing was abit interesting due to loose bolts at third abb point. Good route for the last day, if a bit hot and sunburny!

SuperLee1985 20 Oct, 2015 AltLd O/S BEWARE OF THE HORNETS NEST HALFWAY DOWN THE 3RD AB. STEVE GOT ATTACKED BY AN ANGRY SWARM OF THEM. Apart from that a fantastic climb with incredible views from the ridge at the top. I led 1 & 3, crux was definitely 4, very delicate slab traverse, I went to high on it which made it a little desperate. Only just stayed on.
