Downclimbed from the crux a few weeks ago as I didnt have a small cam. Still had to do a fair bit of up'n'downing today as it was greasy in the heat. Last move was a bit of a shock too. Good route.

well half lead just so i culd fall of the top:-)
Andy Peak 1 - 2nd - 11/Jul/14 with Andrew Deckon

Couldn't get any gear in the tiny slot at the start so essentially a solo, got a friend in the break higher up.

Pretty committing crux. Not sure I'd have had the reach to reverse it.
Matthew Ferrier - Lead O/S - 30/Nov/13 with Calum Wadsworth

Felt too committing above a nasty landing. Followed Matt up and was glad I hadn't lead it.

Excellent climbing, well worth a couple of stars. Attempted O/S lead but was being a wimp committing to the crux so top-roped it once and then led with head torch as it was getting dark. Slightly disappointed I top roped it as it wasn't that hard in the end and also I think could have got the O/S on a different night if I'd waited but still happy to have done this as it is a little gem.

Fat Rob tried leading but gear fell out so top rope, really cold.
mike lawrence? - TR - 13/Apr/10 with FatRob decked from just below the horizontal crack first attempt because i was too pumped from failing on nosferatu. Fortunately, steve is the best spotter in the world... cheers Steve :)
