Bit of a fucking epic, placed gear in the wrong place, tangled my ropes up and then it started to rain. had to make a speedy retreat via a bit of air time to the slab. will be back for it

Ketu - Lead dnf - 07/Sep/09 with Nigel

straight forward enough, although more steep than FBD its not quite as well protected (more E1 than FBD is) But its all over very quickly just pull hard and rock over onto jugs!

Failed too second 3yrs ago (no idea how). No harder moves than FBD but the crux is above gear. (first route with GVG, whoop!)
Alex Mason - Lead - 04/Mar/09 with Guy VG

Didn't think for a second I would pull through the overlaps at the end of a long day but went well and will be back for lead. good climbing by the mason.
GuyVG - 2nd O/S - 04/Mar/09 with Mikey, Mick and Al

Wicked route, with lots of small foot adjustments between each handhold, which made for a pleasant climb!
