jrobinson 8 Nov, 2019 Lead O/S Direct start made quite tricky with a persistent damp patch beneath the first bolt. Feet after this made all the more tricky by having had to climb through the aforementioned damp patch. Pleasant afterwards :-)

harold walmsley u 28 Feb, 2013 Lead O/S Pleasant enough but a little fragile in places. NOTE: The guidebook is wrong in this area. It indicates a 3 bolt route (Patio Door of Percption) between Lesbian and the loose pillar and a 5 bolt route to the R of Lesbian. In reality there are no bolts between Lesbian and the pillar and the line R of Lesbian has only 2 visible bolts. I think this is probably "Patio Door...". Apart from this the lines all seem to be in the correct sequence but not in quite the right places. For example, the line of Lesbian starts a little to the R of the line shown but is obvious as the only 5 bolt line in the vicinity. Lines can currently (2016) all be sorted out by counting the lines bearing in mind Patio is out of sequence.
