An eventful warm-up. Fell onto the maasive ledge while laybacking the top crack, last runner lower than half height (having not bothered with full rack; hexes and cams). A lucky wake-up call.

tskelhon - Solo - 27/Aug/08

Nice route and a game of two halves. Strenuous start then nice meaty moves to get to the top of the groove then a slightly fluttery mantle onto the ledge. A nice thrutch up the crack with holds appearing just when you really need them follows. The crack is harder to climb than it looks from the ground, when you'll wonder why the leader is making such a meal of it :-)
SuperstarDJ - 2nd O/S - 23/Aug/08 with Jamie Ireland

Stonking route!! Once over the first comitting move fantastic laybacking awaits (for those that can do it) if not, like me, fight your way to the mid way belly flop, and then prepare for a thrutchfest from there.. Topped out and and basked in the sun for 2 minutes whilst regaining composure.. Best route yet !!!
mungo - Lead O/S - 23/Aug/08 with David Millington

The best and most confidence inspiring gear on any route I've climbed. A good mix of climbing styles maintains interest. Top section a bit strenuous, would give it 4a.

Tricky for a HVD I thought but not ridiculous. Flew up the initial section and ran it out abit (oops) but was feeling good so no need to mess about! Bottom section has some very nice laybacking on! From then on it would be a perfect place to teach people to jam gently! 10's of bomber jams all the way up once the first ledge has been met, and even more on the top section after the second ledge! Brother laybacked it ALL. Dad and Matt both had a dabble with the jamming and all managed very easily. Size 11 hex (Matts new toy) came in very useful for the belay as there is only a big crack to belay off and the whole summit if you have a big sling! Recommended, 3 stars for sure.
