Fine lead by Kirill. I found it tiring enough to second.

jshields - 2nd - 09/Jul/14 with Paul Tretheway

Super climbing, every move is a half rest just enofe to put gear in and move on to the next position.
Andy Peak 1 - Lead - 22/Jun/14

Used Toms gear and one fall at the top, after a false start. So pumped it hurt!

Bloody hell. Exhausting to belay, even more so to dog to get gear. But fun! Harsh top out hold, but got benefit of previous 'jug' due to skinny fingers.

SamWimpenny - TR - 2013

Fell off just after the layback section, my nut ripped out and I hit the ground, belayer was surprised to see me.

Many years since i was dragged up on 2nd (23/Sep/06) so felt almost like an on-sight. Pumpy from the word go but with excellent gear :)
Graeme Hammond - Lead rpt - 28/Jun/11 with Richard Williams

most fun i've had whilst belaying... and great to give it a go after!

JohnBear - 2nd - 27/Apr/11 with Mark

My friends made it their mission to talk me into it, eventually i manned up and tried (damn peer pressure). Really enjoyable even with the few scary moments trying to place gear when pumped.
MarkRoe - Lead O/S - 27/Apr/11 with John Niven

After belaying Cragrat on it. Seriously pumpy with very little let up after the initial, run out, layback section. Solid and excellent climbing.
lrandall - Lead - 21/Apr/11 with Rich Crag Rat

Good early season climb which i'd been wanting to do for ages. Committing, run-out, strenuous and enjoyable all at the same time
Cragrat Rich - Lead O/S - 21/Apr/11

Thought this would be a good warm up. It wasn't! got mega pumped, and a little nervous on the slopey top out.

This route just keeps going and going, got to the quoted 'jugs' in the guidebook, needless to say they aren't, especially when you're as pumped as i was. Took a rest at 3/4 then just about managed the horrible top out! Good route though.

Tiring stuff. Ran it out at the top for some stupid reason and started bricking it at the top. Good fun though.
