After months of cracks and jamming practice this layback didn't go down well, climbed down and handed the lead to Mike.
FlavioL1989 - 2nd O/S - 17/May/15 with Mike Gallimore
Tried to run pitches 1 and 2 together to make a super long pitch but had a top rope lowered down to me 2m from the top when I bottled it. Led pitch 1 clean. Ropes wouldn't have been long enough to make a belay anyway so lucky Andy was up there really.

Simon Davis - 2nd - 10/May/15 with Tim P
First time ive belayed someone who started crying my name in fear! Lead p2. thought this was bloody hard for e2. There is a hidden peg and cam slot round the lhs of the arete on the 2nd pitch just below the ledge after the bolt. Climbed on the right cos waa too scared to climb the easy way on the left! Exciting.

Mark was being a chopper, so had to remind him to pay attention a couple of times...
Tip: Don't do the route in the morning shade the day after rain.
Top pitch is easy if you go the right way ;-)

first pitch desperate with crap feet, second pitch scary as hell.
GuyVG - 2nd O/S - 21/Apr/15 with bob
lead in one pitch, top part felt at least E3, going on E4 with the fall potential.
Nick1812P - Lead O/S - 03/Oct/14 with Dan, Ben
foot slip on the green on the last move on p1. looked like a scary arete, well lead by Nick
benkelsey - 2nd dog - 03/Oct/14 with Dan Barbour, Nick Priestley
Previously failed to lead first pitch. Two brilliant pitches and might be better than Regent Street! Led both. I didn't have much chance to think about the BIG fall potential as trying to get a move on so Richard didn't get eaten to badly by midges. Caution: some loose rock right at the top just where you don't want to fall off!

Onsighted the first pitch. Climbed through into the second pitch, past the bolt but didn't have anything left to fit in the last gear placement so bottled the last layback.

Butch first pitch followed by a scary second pitch (which I strung together). Pretty much all you could want in a grit route.
Andrew Barker - Lead O/S - 27/Jul/11 with Wormatron
fookin nails! polished footholds, greasy locks, semi blind placements and 5b on nearly every move. great though. slipped off low down, so got it second go, had to really dig in at top though! let out gutteral ug while popping a bit for final jug. most undignified.
