With plenty pads. Felt pretty steady never tried E5 and I had pads anyway but would have said it certainly wasn't a 6b at my height. First time I have headpointed anything.
Calum Wadsworth - Solo RP - 05/Oct/14 with Pete B, Tom A, Alex, micki, Uni Lot

Headpointed. Really happy to do this!! Did above a pad stack, the moves felt fine on the solo but definitely harder for the short, my beta seemed much more contrived than Cal's.
Teappleby - Solo RP - 05/Oct/14 with Matt Harmon, Ben Kelsey, Fran Hammond, Calum Wadsworth, Alex McCann, Pete Briggs, Micki Schobitz

On-sight on a top rope, gutted I didn't try the onsight solo but still pleased for it to feel so solid. No mats.
BRoe - Solo RP - 21/Aug/14 with Millard, whitehouse_rhys

rely cool line, nearly came a cropper at the top first time round but got down and went straight back up to the top this time, class line!
whitehouse_rhys - Solo RP - 21/Aug/14 with Andy M, ben roe

Could just about reach the flutings so didn't feel too hard

Felt OK on a top rope, woke up this morning thinking about what it would be like to solo, interesting?
Gambit - TR RP - 13/Mar/14 with Alone

Had no mats again. Bottom bit pretty easy O/S. Top really hard don't think I'm quite stretchy enough to get the good bit of fluting.

Sketchy!

harvie - Solo O/S - 14/Nov/10 with Jo Mac

Headpoint. Surely no harder than E4 6a for someone my shape (6ft1 with moderately large ape index).
PeteH - Lead RP - 13/Nov/10 with Noel Peatfield

D'oh. Should've attempted the onsight solo. But would've bricked it, fallen off and broken legs. Probably.

pipof747 - Solo RP - 04/Oct/10

Didnt commit to last move and reversed.
DaveFidler - Solo dnf - 04/Aug/10 with Arron Quinn

Felt steady, cool crux at the top which is slopey and delicate. Quality climbing, brilliant solo!
Mike Goldthorp - Solo O/S - 18/Jul/10 with Guy, Laura Perry, alex mason

jowgli - Solo RP - 20/Jun/10 with will kelsall

Quick play on a grigri, moves felt relatively straightforward for 6b. all the holds are pretty good, just quite reachy which is prob why i found it ok, cos im rate tall. Pretty good lil route but gonna leave it for winter, too warm at the mo
