Alasdair Fulton 27 Jul, 2011 AltLd Not onsight, but a valliant team effort. Stuggled up the first pitch, got flash pumped! Andy made a good stab at the crux pitch, swapped ends and pulled the ropes - I nearly managed to redpoint flash the crux but feet popped reaching for the good hold!!! Awesome route and quite an after-work adventure!

andyinglis 27 Jul, 2011 AltLd dog Ace route and 1st attempt at an E5. Ally O/S P1. Took a winger off at the roof on P2, quite exciting! Then Ally almost flashed the pitch after pulling the ropes. Difficult crux. O/S P3.

gforce 22 May, 2011 Lead rpt My long awaited rematch. Still found it pretty damn pumpy and the crux is quite go-y. The route is brilliant. The top pitch is outrageously exposed. Led pitches 2 and 3 together.

mgeek 19 Mar, 2009 AltLd O/S This crag looks like the biggest pile of sh*t ever. But when you actually start climbing, the routes seem quality. Good steep juggy climbing, with lots of gear and a sneaky crux!
