tdan0504 - 24/May/12 with Nina Dudak, Hubert Feret, Bartosz Inglot, Beata Slopien

I think the crux move is 5a,5b or 5c - depending on your height. Overall the route felt E1 5b to me, might have felt harder if I hadn't cheated and put a bouldering mat below the crux.

A superb lead by Nick. Lovely route to follow. I wouldn't fancy it myself on the lead!

a13x - Lead O/S - 06/May/12 with Jessie Harris

E2? Seriously?? Wished I led this now. I know I can't really vote as I didn't lead it but it felt like a straight-forward E1 to me? I would say that my reach helped but Ange did it the same way I did and made it look easy (and she had a dodgy leg). Anyway grade aside - another enjoyable climb.
charley - 2nd O/S - 03/May/12 with JackD, Ange

Another one that I managed to make harder! Oh well, really nice climbing and amazed by the E2 tick. Just a very bold E1, but i'll take E2 ;)
Jackwd - Lead O/S - 03/May/12 with Angela Paul

Excellent lead by Jack. Pleased to have this clean as left knee had given up and was unable to bend it much so had to work the moves so right leg was doing all the work! Would be a scary lead as there is no gear for the crux move.

After the afore-mentioned mare on Canoe, I don't know why I thought this was a good idea... Much deliberation got me as far as the good right hand just below the break. Head f**k led to jump/dash down the slab to big impact on the mat. Repeated this, with bigger, more painful impact. Raff abbed down and placed a cam. I danced up the route, clipped the cam and topped out. Curbar 2 - Sutcliffe 0.

absorbing climb. one pad. first grit E2. rockfax description misleading, gear in last break is very much advised.
