RangerMcFreindly 30 Sep, 2018 Lead dnf Belayed up Leavy on it watching him struggle up the crux for a few attempts before getting up. So thought i would have ago made it to the crux rocked over the first bulge with my last strength jammed a cam in a loose flake clipped and tryied to recover to no avail last try and i was off. Ripped 2 bits of gear and landed on the old bit of gear thats stuck in there 2 inches or so from the deck... need to revist my placements it seems. The crux felt nails but deffinaly coming back for it its such a great looking line!

Wendy Watthews 26 Jun, 2015 Lead dnf Started to back off because of the rain got to the ground and told myself to stop being stupid, found the crux difficult but didn't even have the decency to fall on the frankly solid gear so down climbed again retrieving the gear as I went, should get back on it in cooler and less humid weather

quiffhanger 13 Oct, 2013 Lead O/S My sole ascent of the weekend. Led in pissing wet conditions with half an inadequate rack, followed by a gear-retrieval mission... Unnecessarily exciting.

Hooo 22 Jul, 2012 2nd O/S Great route. Strenuous getting over the bulge, then keeps throwing up another hard move just when you think it's all over. Jammed all the way up the crack. Must come back and lead it. It was tough enough getting all the gear out without resting.

beardy mike 18 Oct, 2009 Lead O/S Great pitch, although dirty and a touch loose to start - this can be avoided to the right of the groove. The crux is brutal, but protected if you are strong enough to stop and put in gear. I just had to plough on to better holds. Onc past the entry to the grrove it relents a bit, getting easier as you get higher.

My scream interrupted the wedding lineup opposite in the restaurant. Ade was lifted off the ground passing each other as I fell. Jumped back on with the adrenaline flowing topped out no problem.
