One of the best problems ever. Fell off at the very top once.

Happy with a flash! Good beta and keep moving! :)

Shut down whatever way I tried it - Blame general lack of ability and mankyness in crack.

Smelly Fox 26/Jan Sent dnf

A bit manky in the crack, but not really a good excuse for failure...

Fell from the top. Will be back on a dry day with more pads...Great problem.

Highballs don't get much better than this, one of the finest problems of the grade in the country.

Took way longer than it should have due to some hungover crap footwork. Awesome line.

Well worth 3*! Everything I had hoped for with this problem. Tricky start but flows once you have your sequence. Probably my favourite climb in Northumberland

made it to the crack, but kept slipping out... apparently it needs to be cold, not warm and humid, excuses aside, its a very dropable, but cool problem, need to get stronger (and possibly taller- damn you giants!) to get established in the crack...although not many holds at the top...

Lots of tries to get the first half wired. Fell from the top slopers twice before success. Confirmed I'm too old for falling off high-balls.

Great problem but not much fun falling from slopers at the top. Hopefully successful next visit.

Quite highball but good landing zone, you'll want at least 2 pads. Best font 7a+ in the county...
