2nd go. Got pretty gripped below the break. Chuffed.
Matthew Ferrier - Sent x - 23/Nov/13 with Chaps from Leeds, Jacob, Micki, Dave Warburton

Ground up above many pads, still bloody scary! Second try today after a few retreats years ago.

Couldn't commit to this, blamed getting too sweaty at the less positive holds getting into the scoop at the top. Good jump!
Dave Warburton - Sent dnf - 23/Nov/13 with Matthew, Jacob, Bill Lawrence, LUUMC, Will Hunt

Clean second go, found key hold while looking after falling (Level with small pocket and back abit) after that cleaned it

Really pleased to get the o/s.. utterly brilliant and a memorable climbing experience despite being above the snow and pads! Exciting top out though, avoiding the wet parts in fading light :)

Snowball to break, platform low enough to do all the hard climbing. Really nice.

Snowball ascent - downclimbed Goliaths Groove which was sopping wet.. Had to have a word with myself after that!

Never thought I'd do this, not particularly valid as proper snow platform. Good though.

fantastic. Making the most of the generous snowdrift, pads, team psyche and perfect friction. Felt fine but so stoked to do it after a number of onsight retreats years ago.
