Really escapeable. I rested to the rt just before crux - a real act of will to get back on route. pity really as otherwise it'd be a great climb.

Just couldn't do the reach

A lovely climb with quite a tough move at half height. Stuck to the centre of the wall, using the undercut crimp and a long reach. Being tall helped loads through the crux as didn't have to work my feet up too high. Sweaty holds made the moves more interesting though.

A good little climb. Led it before. Quite tough technically for 5b but well protected crux. Can't believe someone has suggested e2 for this. You can get three good cams in the break right at the crux and there is only one hard move on the whole route.

Used a scoop out right and it felt about 5C. Don't know how eliminate this is but would be nails going straight to the ledge from the undercut.

5c and e2. A nice move.
James Oswald - Lead O/S - 14/Sep/13 with Kyle Wood

bit of a one move wonder and, as has been said, escapable. however, still quite enjoyable. had to scratch me head a bit to figure it out, but when it goes its not as improbable as it first seems, {spoiler} I managed it in balance with left hand on the arete and right on a crimp.

billy no mates - on a shunt no way is the crux 5b... got to be 5c at least unless you grab the arete a little

good climbing till the bulge, which has got to be harder than 5b, yes you can escape left, but the route is meant to go straight up. tried it on the top rope, even then the bulge was desperate..
