Bruised, clothes shredded and still a bit queasy, feels like I just fought a bear. I dragged up the only useful cam I had but left it halfway when it no longer fit and had to ranout the 'swim' to the top. Very traditional.

Tried it years ago: desperate. Tried it 10 years later: still desperate.
Rob Greenwood - UKClimbing - Lead G/U - 21/Jul/15 with Fat Boy
A good fight. Great fun with slowly rising difficulty and effort the higher you go. Used a cam 4, 4.5, 5 then 6 for the top. You'd probably be fine with just a 5 and a 6
morganator - Lead O/S - 17/Jul/15 with James Hall
lost balance and fell twice about 1 foot. Didnt rest on gear.
great route! funny enough i found using the small footholds the hardest which made it not to pumpy as theres rests on it

Third go today, knee too wide to fit into the crack above overlap, top section desperate, couldn't get anything to fit so resorted to almighty cranking on some awful holds for what was thankfully a bucket at the top.

Lead to the crux by Josh with only stacked hexes and a monkey fist, tr'd it in the end. So exhausted at the top i nearly became a skeleton-chockstone.

Finally just went for it. A few falls. So sustained! Nice butterfly jams on the crux.

Jamming fine. Upwards progress not fine. Need to engage that outside leg.
Simon Davis - 2nd dog - 27/Aug/13 with Tim P
Got mangled but will be back. The hand/fist stack method worked fine but just couldn't muster enough udge to get my legs through the overlap. No sign of a chockstone at the moment.

Pretty pleased to get up this - had low expectations but determination won over. Never climbed anything like it.

Fell off this repeatedly years ago, 1st time today, almost cried at the frustration of trying to make upwards progress!
dannyboy83 - Lead RP - 14/Oct/12 with Floris
Brilliant fun. Writing this the day after doing it... I feel completely beaten up! Will go back and lead it clean but after the second fall from the crux I couldn't be arsed to lower back down again.

Climbed after minimal sleep and maximum alcohol for maximum grimness. I highly recommend this technique. It was ace.

What a tussle, climbed with shoulder in the crack method, turning the lip is strenuous. got stood on the chock then reversed 2m to bring the cam up for the top then fell on it less than a foot from the top, pulled back on and finished it. Savage.greasy.

More than one friend 5 would be handy and the getting through the overlap requires a bit of laybacking facing right.
