7 recorded ascents.

Climber Style FA Ascent Date Suggested Grade
Pete Gomersall Lead (Worked) 1st January 1989 (approx)
Simon Nadin Lead (Onsight) 30th June 1990

One of the first 8a+ onsights in the UK.


Ian Vickers Lead (Flash) 1st January 1997 (approx)
Chris Savage Lead (Flash) 4th June 2011

A great effort by Chris. For the sake of historical accuracy, its worth noting that Chris had climbed The Thumb previously on his 2 week trip (which shares the undercut finishing moves) - see Chris's 8a.nu scorecard.

Molly Thompson-Smith Lead (Flash) 11th June 2021

First British woman to flash 8a+ in the UK.
