First half of the climb is protected by two chockstone threads. Protected the top section with a number 11 Black Diamond Hexentric. Biggest cam we had was a number 3 Camalot, which was too small.cragsman9000 - Lead O/S - 21/Sep/14 with Neil

Excellent fun. Did it on a dry day, wouldn't like to try it if at all damp. Got a good big hex on the top section, as well as the no 5 cams.

Marvellous. One No. 4 cam (the big silver one) is sufficient.

Been wanting to try this for ages, but didn't get the result I hoped for. Backed off when I realised that even Pat's biggest cams weren't big enough and the only gear was going to be the low chockstone.

Physical! Was even forced to resort to laybacking at one point. Definitely felt like an HVS-worth of effort!

quite brutal offwidthing, got a knee properly stuck at one point. Definitely worth looking left & right for other holds.

Good scary-ish fun. Straightforward laybacking, but was glad of the big cams. Worth HVS without, I would think.

Lead on Rob's gear as it was in already. With our kit it was definitely HVS. Perhaps with a couple of Camalot size 5's it could be top end VS. No easier than David (HVS4c) though

cleaned it up a bit, much better and easier than it looks!
only 2 chockstones now though, one below the first ledge and one you can sling from the first ledge. a number 4 ish cam will just about fit in the bottom of the upper section from the second ledge.

Perhaps my most memorable route of the day. Got my knee well and truely jammed near the chockstone and had to stay focussed to free it without the aid of mtn rescue/fire brigade! Staying calm and cold got me out in the end :-) Next time, Ill stick to laybacking it, or work out a foot jam which keeps my knee on the outside of the crack.
robin_hackney - 2nd dog - 05/May/12 with Si
Sunny and warm here. Part of wide crack program so tried to offwidth it but couldn't get knee into crack so had to resort to layback. Managed very insecure offwidth ascent of first half on top rope afterwards but still had to layback the top part

Amazing, worth 3 stars??, One of the best lay backs I've ever done, only found one chock stone right at the bottom! should I have looked harder?? Friend 4 only just fitted at the rest ledge, too busy enjoying the 'ride' for anything else.

bit green on lower slab, feet skidded off going over bulge & fell onto 1st chockstone. Then picked myself up & led - just kept going till reached 3rd chockstone & bridge across. Rather bold, only gear = 3 chockstones; none of my cams big enough for that crack.

Spent ages excavating a chockstone to use as protection at the start of the layback. Not sure that it had ever been used before. However I could not quite commit to bridging out into the resting position before the chockstone protected finish.
