[Jeff came to party but somehow ended up being sent up this!, 2 kb]18m. Do this and Great Slab (in a pair of Woolys' pumps!) on the same day to get a measure of the skill of the Master. An exhausting and precarious struggle on which upward progress is always too tenuous. The rotating chockstone (which has been removed and replaced recently) both helps and hinders. © ROCKFAX

Fell twice before sending
Apharri - Lead RP - 09/Sep/13 with Jim Gayler

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.
Tubs - Lead dnf - 19/Jun/13 with AJM

Pretty pleased to get up this - had low expectations but determination won over. Never climbed anything like it.
quiffhanger - Lead O/S - 20/Apr/13 with Peter Hill

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.

markalmack - Lead O/S - 21/May/11 with james marjot

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.

Nicos - Lead O/S - 31/Mar/09 with nick willis, ryan edwards

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