Graeme Hammond 29 Aug, 2018 Lead O/S Hard start! Easy after, making a solid belay also tricky. Might have been better with a few pads as a boulder problem as couldn't get any gear for starting crux move.

jkarran 27 Sep, 2015 Lead Pretty much straight up after the step across. Trending left onto the slab looks pretty pointless.

PeteH 24 Jan, 2011 Solo O/S Yep, route description doesn't make too much sense to me... Most obvious line seemed to be generally up and left, with a bit of a stretch between good pockets, until I was on top of the boulder. Can't really imagine the line being anything else.

Mattyk 6 Nov, 2007 Solo wasn't sure of route.. went directly up just left of virgin climb? must go back and do it properly with the guidebook to tell me where to go. straight up does seem more logical?
