Still a bit loose but better since rebolting and seeing a bit more traffic. If you split it the pitch grades are 4, 5.

Nice climbing up to about the 25-30m mark and then helmets are definately essential. From that point on rock will be raining down left, right and centre as half the cliff comes away in your hands.

Pitch one is quite good. Pity about the loose upper section. Feels like a true adventure outing. Worth a star for the adventure! Wear helmets.

did this on wednesday(4th may). big rock fall near the top meant we had to back off. depends really, if you like that sort of thing. i don't but can see why some would like its adventurousness(is that a word?).

again wear helmets (and gumshields, and shoulder pads...)

Started this one at about 7pm, there were 3 of us. by the time all 3 of us were balanced precariously on the top ledge of the second pitch it was dark, abbing off was an experience. Its harder to make sure you get everything right in the dark and i nearly dropped my belay device. Never again
