Straight after Poema de Roca L2. Had wanted to try this when I first arrived and finally got round to doing it. Not too bad, really fun and nice and long. Pretty easy to onsight as it is fairly straight forward. Definatly worth doing!
Ellis Butler-Barker - Lead O/S - 19/Feb/14 with Charlotte Warner

Amazing climb, probably the best I've done. Shook out on almost every hold, climbing really steadily, and then just turned it on for the crux! I was lucky to have the clips in though...
Joughton - Lead O/S - 18/Feb/14

1st Rp. Gave full beans on the crux! Think there might be a bolt missing, quite a runout 2 bolts below crux
Bristoldave - Lead RP - 13/Jan/14 with Caroline

2nd go went to far left on the on sight.. Amazing route.
Ricky Rocks - Lead RP - 20/Dec/13

A meandering line of perfect good holds, with an awesome, punishing crux

Johann - Lead RP - 12/Jan/12

After about five failures on the top crux. Should have gone earlier, but I was busy being rubbish. Soft, but I'll take it. First 7c. Bam!
jacobjlloyd - Lead RP - 03/Jan/12 with Josh

I wasn't sure If I was going to get this, I think it could be hard for the short as I couldn't get a toe hook on the crux like others.
Tophe - Lead RP - 2012 with Steve Le F

Toby Dunn - Lead RP - 29/Dec/11

Put draws up and then did 2nd go after that. Possibly on the easy side if I can do in a day, but maybe I just found the final crux quite managable.

1 fall.. cruxy
LC - Lead dog - Nov/11

1st RP. Stuck the clips in then did it. Soft or reach-dependent, I can't remember which.

slimey, slimey humid conditions
Cassidy - Lead β - 28/Dec/10 with Henners

Hidden - Lead RP - 14/Nov/10

Went for the onsight. going well, thought id done crux until i got to it. Fell on last move, didnt realise there was a jug up left so went for, what i thought was a pocket/thread but subsequently used as an intermediate press. So close again just didnt read it well enough. Big move on the crux v3/4. SICK!
