Awesome route, first E5 (is it?) really glad I went for the onsight instead of top roping it- wouldn't make much difference anyway. Resoled and clean shoes definitely helped!spidermonkey09 - Solo O/S - 30/Nov/13
Thin... wierd how well you stick to the slab though

Volunteered to go first. Didn't get anywhere as anticipated and scared the others off trying in the process even with all the pads!

got to trust your feet and have super stong finger nails for the edges. Safe with a spotter, as long as you don't mind sliding down a slab.
Peter Holder - Lead O/S - 31/Oct/10
First attempt at an E5 onsight.6a slab easy I thought!!! Until I realised that it wasn't smearing but climbing on 3mm edges. 1/4 of the way up to the pocket bailed off tried again got no further then gave in. Back after some practice on slate possibly!!!

Flashed on a top rope. REALLY wish I'd just gone for the onsight. Next time I'm there will be jumping straight on it. Great moves.

My hardest route. Fantastic moves on tiny edges, requiring the best of footwork. Recommended to me by Si. My sort of route. Felt so alive on the hard crux and let out a yelp of excitement as I latched the jug 6ft below the finish. Please don't top rope this route.Its going to wreck it!!!!!Go for the onsight and get a spotter!!

Should have led it but it looked harder than it was. Plus no mats :(

Had one go on toprope. One rest in the blank bit in the middle where the rugosities go crap (feet got tired...), keen for the lead/solo if i can do it clean next go.
danwaters - TR dog - 10/Sep/09 with Sam
Damned hard, but very nice if you have the courage! The bottom half (to the big pocket) is very slippery, the top half not so much - is that where everyone falls (or backs) off??? lol

Not that bad if you trust your feet. Crux is easier for the tall.
