What a stunning route. And an awesome location. Keen to get stuck into the other routes now. A tad hard for 7b? Felt much easier this time round after spending a bit of time in Yorkshire ;)

Day 2 - It had me on the ropes for the first two rounds but I think I scored some points in the third.
JLS - TR dog - 15/Jun/14 with Koon M., Burnsie

Lovely climbing. Long and sustained with 3 hard sections!

Day 1 - A start was made.
JLS - TR dog - 24/May/14 with Fraser H.

Part climbed to bolt 6 as a warm-up. Still felt a great, technical route with lovely moves.
Fraser - Lead dnf - 27/Apr/14 with Simon, Garth

Could only link 2-3 bolts before my fingers were numb, 2 minutes of hot aches and go again. Too cold to red point. All the moves done easily though. Majority of the crag is dry. Will be back!

close - fluffed 2nd redpoint, too pooped to go again properly

Wired the first crux...hopefully can remember all the new beta from today...best burn popped off just before clipping at the end of second crux...close no cigar. Conceding that ground up ethics aren't always best for learning moves...
ANC - Lead dog - 05/Sep/12 with Jules

2nd time on it, still no tick. Seriously need to do a bit of endurance work before getting back on it!
dwisniewski - Lead dog - 26/Aug/12 with Iain, Fraser Harle, kev gibson

Brilliant route, very psyched for it. 3 working goes and then a speculative redpoint, made it to the second crux, better than expected, then suffered terminal power/energy/fitness fail combined with an acute case of Midge.
catt - Lead dog - 26/Aug/12 with Darren

first taste of climbing something hard outside. did all moves but one, in the end.
tomdude - TR dog - 12/Aug/12 with nick

Very hard for 7b! The crux of RC is on the UE part!
Adam Lincoln - Lead O/S - 11/Aug/12 with Meg

retro onsight climbed to 4th or 5th bolt in the rain 8 years ago.
ali_robb - Lead O/S - 08/Jul/12

Put in the clips on lead OS fail. All moves squared away. Two red point attempts succumbed to poor feet on the first crux and a lack of route knowledge. Great route given recent form Id say this was a tough 7b!
ANC - Lead dog - 26/Jun/12 with Darren, Jules, Fraser Harle

first time on it- putting in clips up to point where route splits into railway children for jules who was working on that one. Can't do the moves at the 2 cruxes yet.
MelH - TR dnf - 22/Aug/11 with julesp

"I love it when a plan comes together."
Fraser - Lead RP - 05/Aug/11 with Jules

Did all the moves fine, but once again let down by lack of fitness. Absolutely brilliant climbing though!

Jonathan Bean - Lead RP - 05/Sep/10 with Chris E

Very nice climbing straight off the deck. Will take a second visit (at least) for a decent RP attempt. And fewer midges!
Fraser - Lead dog - 04/Sep/10 with Team Strong

Frozen fingers...! Brilliant rock but not the crag for an early start.
sheppy - Lead RP - 19/Jun/10 with jules

not even close! fingers frozen
julesp - TR dog - 19/Jun/10 with neil

Hidden - Lead RP - 22/May/10

Felt almost doable, figured out all the moves very quickly, but will need another visit to get the redpoint!
Chad123 - Lead dog - 02/May/10 with Emily

Got second proper redpoint go. A good route in amazing surroundings. Not the usual sport crag location!
MONKEY78 - Lead rpt - 18/Jul/09 with adam ellwood

buzby78 - Lead - 24/May/09 with Damo

Very nice route but extremely hard
spunkymonkey - Lead dnf - 03/May/09

Shoulda been the onsight! Got it second go. Awesome crag and awesome route
Stewart B - Lead RP - 18/Apr/09 with BL n' CE

Worked it twice then went for the redpoint, really surprised myself by getting through both cruxes and getting to the rest. Had only worked the finish once and came off the last crimp due to power failure!
Fultonius - Lead dog - 14/Sep/08 with Neil Adams

Didn't get as close to linking it as Ally, but linked each of the crux sections before my fingers refused to hold onto anything anymore. Will be back for a re-match!
