<It is unclear who first bolted the line but Kristian Klemmow and Mark Katz, both very strong climbers, had both tried the line with little success in the past.>

I would just like to correct a few points in this paragraph.

a) My surname is spelt with a Cornish C.

b) Very Strong. Very inaccurate description, Mark was the strong one. I had only done 8a at the time!

c) Little success. I did quite well on it actually. It was incredibly difficult finding a belay back in 98/9. Sport climbing was not very popular around there at the time. I think holds have come off since then anyway.

In reply to kristian: Sorry about that Kristian, saw your surname spelt elsewhere with a 'K'. Will edit that now. How well did you do on it?

Cheers,

Dunc

In reply to Duncan Campbell - UKC:
No problem. Thanks for putting that right.

It just came down to one very hard move. The rest of it was ok and the start was nearly always wet. Then I moved to the Peak.

It's old school public knowledge who bolted this (I don't even do routes) - good effort Mr Clem. I belayed you on this a long while back, and you cruised both sections, and where only dropping the match into the break/seam.

Also - I remember you applied the resin to the seepage? It's amazing what people forget.

Nice line, can't see why the 'wasn't sure what to grade it' issue (yawn). It's been deemed 8c since around 1999.

In reply to kristian: Hi Kristian,

I remember belaying you on this route and you had it wired, remember it being wet a few times though...
