Fell having battled my way through the crack, got a huge bomber wire in the slot and then fell trying to switch hands.
Place a big wire on QDs on either side of your harness. The two reaches for the top are nails.
Really e2? No!
My next attempts were fairly poor, finally got to the top.
Desperate! Harder than the rasp, fern hill, five finger exercise...
James Oswald - Lead dog - 18/Nov/12 with Kyle Wood
Crack and jamming rests were slimy but managed to dry enough out to get through. Bit of a race against the rain too. 5a but run out slab to peg on the left and bomber number 4 rock on the right. Balancy climbing up the groove into the right hand jam rest. Thin, but good enough, diagonal locks to a triangle slot and another sinker jam. Then some good cranking to glory. Pretty damn good! (for a grit route anyway)
JRae - Lead - 23/Sep/12 with Ben Kelsey
Fell off near the top immediately above the jug. Gutted!!! The very top move was more like super-reachy 6a for me, a (very) shortie (maybe 4a for a tall?).

Glyn - Lead O/S - 21/Aug/12 with Amy
This felt like a pretty solid E3 really, lots of hard moves on the upper wall into a sequence of pretty tough 5c moves to finish. To be fair the gear is bomber, but the climbing's hard too. Not as pumpy, or as good as I expected though.

Matt Cooke - 2nd dog - 19/Nov/11 with Tom Jagger
Had a slight mishap topping out. One of my walking boots somehow unclipped from my harness. It was very fortunate that the pool level was 1m lower than normal because the boot came to rest at the very bottom half way between Excaliber and Billy Wizz. Retrieving it with one rock shoe and a boot was fun. In a moment of confusion we thought one of Misha's trainers had gone in as well.
MD - 2nd dog - 06/Nov/11 with Ed, Misha
Had struggled back in March 2009 so hoped to now do it clean. Fine to the non-rest at the start of the crack but then fell off when a finger lock failed. Harder than it looks as the initial section of the crack doesn't accept finger locks easily. Got to the hole and swapped hands a few times but couldn't get a proper shake out. Went for the finishing moves anyway and got the moves right but too pumped to hold the 'jug' so dropped onto the gear in the hole. Finished easily after a rest. Need to do it again one of these days... Think it deserves E3. Mike's shoe unclipped itself and fell in the pool as he was topping out on second!

Beta. Lots of beta. In fact I even had my two biggest nuts prepared with quick draws at the front of my harness, one either side just in case.
Found the slab the most scary, not a fan. After recovering from over-gripping the rest was amazing, technical and interest sustained throughout. The top out jug was very welcome!
E2 5c but just a lot of it I think

really disappointed to fall off this. Made heavy weather of the thin crack though wasn't really pumped.

Though the crack is very thin for my fingers, solid locks are still there, just didn't find them on the onsight!
