Small and weak 20 Aug, 2017 AltLd dog Ben led 1 st pitch with style. I rested for a while on the pegs on pitch 2! Rather that than lob on them - they look older than me.

youwillfindjimbo 16 Jul, 2017 AltLd dnf I lead the crux pitch and then fell off seconding trying to work out the moves in P2 and got lowered to the ground as was hanging in space. Bummer! Nice route, but those moves on P2 to get into the groove are perplexing and pumpy to work out. The 5c moves in P1 are awesome though!

Tom.Priestley 8 Oct, 2016 AltLd dog Led P1 onsight then fluffed it trying to climb up the groove on P2. Did it in the end but a bit annoying. No pegs on first pitch anymore, old stuck wire which can be backed up with more wires just before the traversing crux. Belay pegs are shit but can be backed up. Could be E3 5c 5c.

Ratfeeder 26 Aug, 1997 Lead O/S Evening after work. Led pitches 1 & 2. Crux traverse on pitch 1 thin and technical, Kim fell off. Pitch 2 steep & strenuous. Kim led pitch 3 in semi darkness and by the time it was my turn there was very little light. Descended from top in pitch dark without head-torches. It's amazing how your eyes adjust. Great climb.
