Pixie-Andy 28 Jun, 2014 2nd dog I failed miserably seconding this, with its ultra hard 6C start. But found a lovely layback route a meter left of the first bolt that allowed me to blag myself up an easyish 6b, (trad...able), to a point where i could unclip an get on route. It feels a little unstable! Might be safer topping out rather than weighting the lower off ;-)

zcsharp 4 May, 2014 Lead dnf Got to the first bolt and rested on it, noticed it was dodgey and decieded not to risk it, plus the problem is nails.

Dan Hale 2 May, 2014 Lead O/S Very hard moves straight off the deck with some alarming and unstable rock. At one point I pulled off a hold and barn-doored 1.5m to my left, luckily managing to hang on by one hand! Also, I'm far from an expert but the first bolt looked dodgy. The lower off is also bolted to a semi-detached rectangular slab of rock which looks like it might become unstable after heavy rain or a deep freeze. Really good climbing thought! Glad I managed to onsight this after failing on Wizz Bang (F6c near 'entrance' to the quarry).

MarkRoe 24 Jun, 2013 Lead G/U A real brawl!! I eventually 'thrutched' my way to being successfully established between the fins with a strange off balance layback sequence, a ring lock and a poor hand jam. A very weird, but oddly cool and totally unique little route.
