sebbo 30 Sep Lead O/S Brilliant route once committed to the start - quite run out from the very beginning. Great rock, climbing and location. Remember to take in the view.

Gavin McColl 7 Jul Lead β Do not climb the holds to the left leading to an overhang at the start. Begin centre of the wall on small ledges and run out to the first gear placement (pretty bold). Holds are very positive. Really fun route, deserves more stars, climbed in combination with whither weather.

010paw 31 May, 2014 Lead O/S Cracking route!! Very very enjoyable! Start was seriously bold! 1 crappy friend that I wouldn't like to have fallen on until I got to the downward facing crack for a bomber friend and also took the in-situ friend just to be sure! Gear afterwards was good and climbing was sustained at the grade all the way I thought, give or take a ledge or two for a breather...... Plus the weather was exceptions so happy days.
