Nice! Tricky moves, fairly powerful for a slab. 1 pad to level out the landing, which I was grateful for. Shame Hairless Heart was wet, would have liked to do the combination
Mike Goldthorp - Solo O/S - 03/Mar/11 with Steve Ramsden

Climbed clean from the first ledge after a few goes. Doubt I will ever solo this. Awesome moves though.
PeteH - TR RP - 02/Mar/11 with Mark Watson

3rd go GU, 3 pads. Awesome route.
James Oakes - Solo RP - 12/Feb/11 with Brad Cowley, Bill Lawrence, Guy Van Greuning

a relative siege for me and with two pads a lot of fun. Back as soon as it stops raining, very important where you aim for on the dyno
GuyVG - Sent dnf - 12/Feb/11

3rd go. Nearly flashed it.
Ed Booth - Solo - 23/Jan/11 with Adam Long, Sean Grady

highlight of intended active rest solo sesh. no new ticks but good to be doing some moves at height again without suffering terror.

Slim was calling out some help along the first part of the route so can't really call it a pure onsight. I was pretty gripped tbh!
