After years (20+) of looking at this ground up finally decided to top rope first, still feels very hard. The Solo would be interesting!

very straightforward, can see all the moves and holds from the ground. topout a little sandy, but substantial heather means there is at least something to grab onto!

Superb problem, with a difficult rock over finish. Good as a highball, but enlist the help of a spotter or two. The top is still sandy.

So glad to have lead this, superb move at the top with a downward palm and undercut to a sloping top. Scary top out. No mat used of course!

Nice climbing.
highlux - Solo O/S - 11/Mar/11 with Martin Veale

Tried this four times previously on my own, each time backed off from the crux! Today perfect conditions, two pads and a spotter and it felt totally fine. No harder than 5c, if that.

Got as far as the break with a rope on, bottled it and down climbed. Lost the harness and felt much better on the solo, gaining the break, then the undercut and high right foot pocket. Fully extended and not wanting to jump for the slopers, down-climbed again, with a bit of a jump/fall. Went up again, couldn't get a hold at the top, again, and sacked it off to move onto kayak...

I knew I could do the move, but I put a side runner on it anyway. Shame on me

Scorchingly hot, disgusting. Retreated to Stoney.
Dave Warburton - Solo O/S - 11/Aug/09 with Dan Lane, Franco Cookson

Done above a mat, though it looks a long way below from the crux rockover at the top. Luckily my spotter is 6'4"! Felt like 5c, not 6a.
