Wanted to do this since I first seen it, scary stuff. Spent the morning psyching up and practiced placing two tricams one handed which on the climb were.. useless, Raj could have had his lunch instead. May have been easier to solo. no pads, first E5!

Ground up, one play a few weeks ago with a pad. Amazing climbing. Last few metres are a definite no fall zone!

Felt harder than I expected. With no chalk to show the way, it was a bit puzzling at times and momentarily slappy. But then, Im shit at aretes.

Terrifyingly easy! Too much time to think about the situation so hardest part was controlling the adrenaline. Great SUMC support!

Daniel Heath - Solo rpt - 15/Sep/12
With Two pads. No one else wanted to climb so they said I should solo something. I set out just to "have a look" and kept going. 2 crux rockovers were fairly steady with good rests to think about the moves. The 3rd rockover felt pretty dodgy but at least there was a nice surprise on the right...

Fantastically atmospheric climbing. I found getting to the shot holes harder than the last couple of moves even though they were more precarious and far more dangerous. No pads.

Had belayed Ol and co previous to ascent. No top rope practice. Bought alien and tricam. Put sling on top "spike"! It's hard, but not that hard, I've certainly climbed alot harder.
