Got over the lip but pumped out getting the next cam in. Very gutting, great fun and impressive for 5b!Stroppy - Lead dog - 20/Jul/14 with Steve McClure
Hard, tried out jamming gloves for the first time, big help on the roof section probably riding help after pulling round the roof. Quality struggle.
Brannock - Lead - 12/Jul/14
John smashed this out with his funky homemade jamming gloves though had to take a couple of rests (swings) on gear. The ropes got stuck as he got near the top and he contemplated untying (I think he might have from one from one rope) due to the rope drag around the lip.
Before seconding I abbed down to reclip the blue rope because I didn't want to take a massive swing. Upon climbing up to the roof crack I decided that I wasn't up for the second as I was convinced I would hit the floor if I fell off despite Robby's claim that it would be fine. The solution to this was to untie from one rope clip some gear to it and see how close it swung to the ground. After this experiment proved that I probably wouldn't hit the ground I tied in and on the demands that if I did hit the ground I expected 10 drinks from both Robby and Brannock I jumped off and took massive swing whilst screaming "fuck" in as high a pitch as I could manage!!
Upon actually trying the route it turns out it is three big hand jams followed by a pull around on the lip.

Excellent climb! I think it was the first time for me that my feet went cut loose thoroughly relying on jamming even for a fraction of a second. Very committing. Cams placed on the roof crack were pushed and moved by the rope drag, but my second managed to retrieve them.

natalietanzer - Lead O/S - 29/Aug/10 with gary
Went up to the crack several times trying to figure out the best way to do it, eventually decided you needed two hands jammed in the crack and to control the swing of your legs from left to right, got jams in, left hand fist jam absolutely solid, swing right foot to small lips on right face, knee contact is inevitable, take right hand out, desperately grope for good hand hold on right lip, pull yourself up, left elbow on ledge, toes in little foothold, wang a nut in, take five minutes to get you breath back. Hand jams are solid, lost very little skin, well chuffed :-)
( One rope got jammed though while going up final slab and had to untie it with one hand, glad it was a bowline )
