Seconded Tom cleanly after having fallen off the top moves on my lead attempt.
TobyA - Lead dnf - 28/Sep/14 with Tom R

Robin and I wanted to 'play' in this lively looking and well protected HVS, having never led one before. Robin placed the gear 2/3 of the way up but couldn't finish. Then I tried, thankful for his gear in place, placed one more dodgy nur and lassoed that wedged in bit of rock (felt very adventurous when I dropped my slung on my foot and balanced it back up...) and finally made the last move over the bulge. What an experience! Nice climbing, the crux is just below the bulge when the crack offers less than you'd wish for for your hands. Push up anyway and it gets better when you reach the jugs on the wedged in boulder.

Had wanted to onsight this for ages. Gutted I had to rest on rope halfway. Top layback section was fine, maybe only 4b, but getting to the start of it was pumpier then hell. Was difficult finding a good place to rest. Will come back for another go.

buxtoncoffeelover - 2nd - 27/Aug/14

Felt a bit tired as i'd just lead an HVS without warming up and although this should have been fairly straightforward all the gear placement seemed to be in awkward positions, would have helped if I had more cams... trying to place a hex just before the offwidth completely knackered me and I rested on a stuck cam before backing off to try again another day.

Really nice route. Did it straight after doing L'Horla so my arms were pretty knackered and felt pumped from the start. Didn't help that I completely missed the hands off rest below the crux. Was glad that the layback at the top got easier and easier. Think it would feel pretty straight-forward and more relaxed on fresh arms..
charley - Lead O/S - 03/May/12 with JackD, Ange

Easy peasy! Getting established in the layback is the crux, one gnarly pull!
Jackwd - TR O/S - 03/May/12 with Angela Paul

Excellent lead by Charley. Really nice climb although I hate laybacking and the polish on the wall means you have to be quite careful with your footwork. Found a lovely handsoff rest before the upper layback and probably wouldn't have got up it without!

Really great route and typical of Curbar grading. Got pumped and scared sorting the gear under the final layback crack. Came back down to the bridge rest then committed to the top section and cruised it! Much easier that it looked and so happy and I didn't weight gear and blow the onsite. Wanna do it again!
