Soloed a few times over past 20 yrs, gear unlikely to hold.
Dave Turnbull, BMC - Lead rpt - 04/Jul/15 with Kasia Osipowicz
went up with gear, realised there was none, climbed back down, soloed :)
PeteWilson - Solo O/S - 16/Apr/15 with josh
Tried soloing a few times but got pumped and downclimbed, then we found an OK cam to protect the crux which made it easier to commit to.
robertmctague - Lead β - 12/Oct/14
Down climbed from second break which was probably harder than continuing.... No gear where I'd hoped and sandy holds at the top with a leg breaker of a fall. 5c felt fair.

Got 7 meters up and figured that this would be a solo and not a lead! Got to the break after the undercling then had to jump off due to a worried Belayer and lack of gas due to hanging around trying to look for placements. Will return with a bouldering mat i think!!

Russell Birkett - Solo O/S - 14/Apr/12
got much higher than last time, bottled it twice at the hold above the last break. although jumping off from near the top is completely fine onto pads.

just bouldered first half
jamiefoxen - Sent dnf - 03/Jul/10
got to the 2nd break and began to wish that the ground was closer - maybe next time ill try find some gear and get a bit closer to the top before chickening out- moves felt easier today
Woodiee - Sent dnf - 15/May/10 with Rob Clark
very dynamic moves fell a couple of times but well placed mats helped easy once i worked out the sequence

Locals beta: Laying away with your right hand on the layaway is better than the more obvious rocking up using it with your left hand. Traditionally graded HVS now gets E3 I think.

Soloed with ample encouragement from below - necky but it's worth digging deep and going for the break. Excellent route but not E3!
