Jim Walton 10/Sep Solo rpt

Cheeky off balance start and green at the top. Once you've got to the top there is a V groove that has some gear lowdown on the RHS behind a flake that looks a good location for a belay. The flake moves when you load it.

The start is hard for the grade, needs commitment in the chimney.

Manc88 01/May/15 Lead O/S

First lead of the day - took a while to build the confidence being only second time out leading, but simple enough once I worked out the technique and began trusting my feet again.

MarikaB 20/Apr/15 Lead O/S

Hit my chin as the chimney is rather narrow and not wide enough for good bracing

Had to weight the rope at the bottom to retrieve nut protecting the corner move, otherwise not bad.
