Getting into the layback coming out of the niche proved to be a bit too much. Hard but great fun and one to come back for.

cold, cold and more cold led to horrendous hot aches then climbed from the ground without pulling the ropes.

You really need to put some effort in on this one, at least it's only a couple of hard pulls! surprised again at how hard the bottom crack was though!

Dan attempted lead; lowered off. I attempted on lead. Dan led smoothly on second attempt. A real tussle even on second; off balance and hanging horizontally off hand jams. Awkward. Total sandbag E1.

(Retro-)Flashed in my fist try to my surprise and pleasure! I failed to even top out last year, but remembered the tips and they were very useful (in that sense, it wasn't "retro"-flash). But this was a proper ground-up ascent! (Mitch cleaned the route for me last year after my failure.) Rob thought, after seconding with a great struggle, it was "the hardest E1 I have ever done, BY FAR" and harder than Tippler Direct E3.

Up to crux using Gaz's gear, then surprised myself by finishing the route. It felt pretty tough on wet, slimy and insecure jams. Lots of effort needed.

Failed on the crux move after hanging about for to long.
Lowered off and billy led it and topped out in good style.
Hard crux on slippery, awkward jamms!
Good fun though.. I'll be back !!!! Again ..

Let's just say you can see how it got it's name. Solid jams though (crack was moist too) so it wasn't too bad. Good to see Will sit on the rope seconding this one... and give it the grade E1 8b.

Slumped briefly on rope immediately after getting knees up on the side wall - could feel the skin coming off my right hand and decided it wasnt worth it on a top rope. Should have taken the tie
me to find a better jam before pulling my knees up - but its bloody strenuous!
