Pinky - 2nd O/S - 15/Oct/12 with Ed Booth, alec thomas

Didn't have a guide book and this looked good for teaching technique on - did it with the arete, as I was soloing in my trainers, but some of them did it without. Probably did the start of the severe, but we smeared up the line in the photos anyway. Thought it was about HVS like that, but what do I know? Funny how grades work. Had a stream of people with basically no smearing experience pad up it nicely - I guess they are all just awesome!
jacobjlloyd - 07/Oct/12

Climbed with the arete a couple of months ago and without today. Feels E3 without arete.

No arete. Backed off and escaped right a few times before committing. Didn't have 100% faith in the gear in the low break, not sure it would have pulled tight anyway though.

Guy Wilson - Lead - 20/Jun/10 with Byron Buck

First E3 lead if it in fact is E3. Felt way to easy to be so...easy E2 5b? Still, nice route and the upper slab felt a little scary; a steeper version of TPS!

After failing to lead it in the gathering gloom, quite an easy move for 5c, it felt more like 5b, but still probably E3 as the fall is potentially massive.

Great climb - I could well be wrong but judging from the greeness of the start not many people do the direct start to this route starting on the slab to the right of 3 pebble. Looks like a lot of people start in the corner?? True/False??
