y2keable 3 Jul, 2014 2nd dog John took a whipper on the lead and I fell on the second, even after the BMC clean-up the rock is rather slippy, making the layback strenuous.

CHarrison ??, 2014 - Lead with James following, laybacked the crack and only managed to not fall off due to sheer terror, think I got way too pumped stopping to put gear in. Composed myself on a ledge halfway up for the pull over the chockstone
