Adam John Haynes 17 Aug, 2018 Lead O/S Failed to complete this, shame. Retreated from below the big roof. Route was rather dirty, gear initially a little less than bomb proof combined with increasingly heavy rain, all worked to psyche me out at any rate. E2/5bish as far as I got.

BTphonehome 25 Jul, 2014 2nd β What a punter! Out of draws and boxed out of my mind. Lower off of shame to follow Tony up. What a route though! Absolutely brilliant climbing in a unique setting. Big thanks to the cleaning effort.

chrishedgehog 28 Jul, 2012 Lead O/S Apart from a slight dusty coating and a few avian items (owl pellet, corpse of unfortunate animal left by peregrine etc...) it was in great condition. Feel compelled to echo the sentiments of many others: thank you to the crag's unofficial custodians. Les and Dave were putting a hard day's work in while we were there and it really is a fantastic place to visit thanks to theirs and other people's efforts. Like doing "Plexity" with "Regent Street" on top.

Graeme Hammond 15 Jul, 2012 Lead O/S One of the best climbs on grit and one of the best things I've ever done. Looks very intimidating but has good gear, big holds and plenty of rests. Led as one pitch, why would you do it any other way??

petegunn 15 Jul, 2011 Lead A superb route that had me sweating buckets by the time i reached the saftey of the tree! The finish is fine, now that a large loose block has been trundled. Thanks to Duncan for cleaning the route and removing the aforementioned block (see photo). my partner and i also gave it a wipe as we climbed so its good to go. Go do it!
