bede.west - 2nd dog - 18/Nov/12

Pulled on a nut when, after using up all of my try getting through the crux, I found the upper crack was lovely and damp. Nice moves, but tenuous and hard!
victim of mathematics - 2nd dog - 26/Oct/12 with James Oswald

Almost fell off twice placing gear. Shame the gear is slightly awkward. Ace route, had some fun with the wet pockets. Really lovely

Jim Slater - 2nd dog - 24/May/12 with Graeme

After sitting around for most of the evening moping because it was too hot, it cooled down just enough though was still very warm just before it got dark... Good to do this clean after a previous doged lead earlier in the week in sweating conditions. A great climb :)
Graeme Hammond - Lead rpt - 24/May/12 with Jim

after getting spat off on lead, me and oli decided to improve our crack climbing with gear retrieval - turns out E2 5c cracks are hard! - thin gear where you want your hands and minimal feet!

pie_eater_pete - Lead O/S - 24/Sep/11

Didn't think this was particularly hard for E2, but i've not done enough to know really. good climbing with gear better than the guidebook suggests. Nice fingerlocks and two finger pockets.

Hidden - 2nd dog - 02/Oct/10

Had been meaning to do this one for a while. Enjoyable finger torquing and monoing, shame it's over so quickly. Very different to most other routes at Froggatt, aptly described in PGE as a refuge from Milstone (which is why I liked it!).
