2 recorded ascents.

Climber Style FA Ascent Date Suggested Grade
John Dunne Lead (Worked) 01 Jan 1998 (approx) E9
Ben Bransby Lead (Flash) 21 Oct 2000 E8

Ben watched Dave MacLeod top rope the route before flashing it with the gear in place. He then repeated the route placing all the gear on lead.

He found some extra gear that was not used on the first ascent and suggested it brought the grade down to E7/8.
