Tough route...necky in the middle especially without an unsportingly large ships anchor cam, good lead
chris p duck - 2nd O/S - 14/Jul/14 with Chris R

It's a bit of a fight until the blocks just below the top

Glad I backed off the solo on this one, tougher then it looks - good knee jams though :)
charley - Lead O/S - 01/Jun/14 with Ange, Kev

Tithe Technique - 2nd O/S - 01/Jun/14 with Angela Paul, Charley Fell

Charley's lead. Only reason I managed to get this clean is because you can stick your knee in and just sit there!!! What an awkward pumpy climb...sort of fun in a way once it was finished but I was soooooo thrashed when I finished, had to really work for this one. Definitely not a warm up route!!! I found it more testing than Right Unconquerable!!

Didn't have a big enough cam for the crack but put a cam in a horizontal break 6" from the top as the direct finish mantle was a little worrying. Nice route, shame it's not twice as long.
deacondeacon - Lead O/S - 21/Feb/13

Bridging seems to be the way.
JohnHutch - Lead - 03/Nov/12 with Nik H, SC
