rajeshwarbisht - 2nd dnf - 15/Aug/15 with Flavio

Really good and really hard, managed to place loads of marginal gear. Definitely top end of 5c.
FlavioL1989 - Lead O/S - 15/Aug/15 with Raj Bisht

Good effort from Duncan. Lead this a couple of years ago. Hard crux moves. Cracker of a route.
ChrisBrooke - 2nd - 18/Jul/15 with Duncan Bell

Learnt how to fingerlock on the route which was cool. Also received a standing ovation from the crag upon arriving at the top. I guess I made it look as hard as it felt!

robblowen - 2nd dog - 23/Aug/14 with Jonny

Sublime. Awesome positive bold wall, technical safe arete, desperate crimping above small gear, then a pop for the top on tired arms. Special route

Tougher than I remembered - would get tech 6a in Pembroke !

Hung around too long before the second crux, fingers gave in just as my feet got to the next rest.
amccann - Lead dog - 04/Nov/13

Amazing route, extremely well named- didn't feel I had it in the bag until I caught the top. Straightforward to pool wall, but the first crux is fierce and took me a very long time to work out, good value for 5c. Second crux easier once I manned up and went for it. Gear bomber all the way, including the peg.

Dibdawg - Lead O/S - 26/May/13 with Scott Haslam

Really nice. A bit easier than I was expecting. The initial slab is very straight forward with big holds. The gear on the headwall all felt a bit 7 out of 10, so got plenty in. It's slabby though, so you can hang around in comfort while you place gear and get ready for the hard move up. Top move is easier than the move to the peg.

rd20 - 2nd dog - 21/Apr/13 with David P

Well named route! My favourite Grit route ever I think. Is incredibly safe (once at the gear), yet somehow doesn't feel it! Took me quite a while to figure out the first crux, which was the hardest/tenious for me. Last crux felt straightforward and not as reachy as expected.

Sam Marks - Lead O/S - 30/Oct/12 with Matthew Ferrier

Quality route. The main wall is just the right side of slabby to allow sufficent rest to survey the top moves. The opening slab is a fine experience on it's own as well!
Matthew Ferrier - Lead O/S - 30/Oct/12 with Sam Marks

2nd go, ground up, stood on the ledge too long first go and didnt have enough left in me for the final move, bad tactics, if you're reading this before an ascent MOVE FASTER

JRae - 2nd - 23/Sep/12 with M Watson, Martin Court

Solo up to the first gear not really my cup of tea, but the gear from then on seemed solid if a bit sparse. Weirdly thought that the first crux moves don't include the arete so made it a little harder for myself than I should. Spent an age trying and working out the second crux; rather a reach on poor feet with that small crimp. Steady to the top. Very pleased; very nice.

Moved around arete with good gear, then got on the good ledges and put a bad cam in a peg scar. Moved above this to (presumably) the first crux and fell off, pulling out the cam and falling about 10m, just missing the pond. I bashed my helmeted head on the rock and had a night in hospital.

barni - Lead O/S - 14/May/10 with Paul James

couldn't work out the a way to do the crux without pulling on the right hand hold that felt too small for me so down climbed to the ground. Then decided to have another go latter and found a way to to the crux only for my foot to slip and take a fall as I was pulling up to the peg, was hard to commit a 2nd time but eventually finished, rather annoyed to say the least about the whole thing :@ set the tone for a shit day topped off with a flat tyre (cheers to Luke for doing most of the work!)and no money to go to the pub!

Thankfully I was so engrossed in the climb I never stopped to worry about how deep the pool is. All the holds are there, but the gear is insecure save for a bomber wire protecting the crux and the reward of hitting the sweet spit is a thank god peg. Glad I didn't read the route description in the guidebook or I would have hesitated about climbing it, even with Thea's reassurances that I'd be ok on it - where was the reachy finish? No comlaints! All fantastic, a proper route, with glee factor.

Meant to do this for a while and never got around to it. I found several parts of it quite tricky but climbed it resonably quickly. Hopefully this is the end of my recent form of lobbing off everything.
Dave Warburton - Lead O/S - 14/Mar/10 with Franco Cookson

did the climb clean till the last move but unfortunately the guy belaying me was a bit tight on the belay so got pulled off and then did it fine afterwards.although thankyou very much Mike for letting me second your climb!grea route!

Gutted!! got to just below the peg (a metre or so), and was working out the move when the heavens opened. Whole thing was soaked within a couple of minutes, and had to lower off, very very frustrating, I think it would have gone clean..eventually! Quality climnbing to that point though :)

Dave Foster - Lead rpt - 18/Sep/09 with Andy

2 rests, one for each crux. Chronic dither at crux no.1 initiated terminal calf pump. Took ages getting gear I was happy with and working out the best sequence, by which time I was having a right wobbler. Can't wait to go back and do it clean now I know what I know! Fantastic climb.
Dave Foster - Lead - 06/Sep/09 with Andy

bold as brass at start- move to arete is hard. nice lead by rich.
lithos - 2nd - 29/Aug/09

Long awaited and dream't about ascent which turned out to be much less sustained than expected through the crux(es). Standard climbing wall 5c stuff really but very good positions & moves

totally different in character to Billy Whizz but utterly excellent - a route of 2 halves, the first of which is the straightforward but unprotected slabby wall and the second is the well-protected crack with a more technical bent, very worthwhile

what a great route, 5b slab to start, up to jugs to the arete good rock, precarious move round arte to the ledge, small but good gear, hard 5c move, clip peg, soft 5c to finish. sustained interest gear were its needed for E2. 3*
