Dan724 - Lead RP - 28/Sep/15 with Jess Cadwell

Great route but too hard for me at the moment :(
Daniel Heath - Lead dog - 08/Apr/15 with Hyeri

Really cool route, much better than Poema de Roca. Fell off low down crux and top move first go putting clips in. Went next attempt without practice. Low down section felt hardest but whole route is very sustained. Good holds are everywhere, just need to move between them and not get pumped! Very polished again.

adamjeffs - Lead O/S - 14/Mar/14 with mum

End of the day after spending the day trying a project. Was actually shocked to onsight it as I felt awful when I first pulled on and very cold. Gets much easier as you get higher I think. Great route, harder to onsight than Honk Down? Or was I just really tired?
Ellis Butler-Barker - Lead O/S - 20/Feb/14 with Charlotte Warner

Ricky Rocks - Lead dog - 10/Dec/13

Quality. 3rd go but should have gone on second (just didnt work out where to clip after crux)
chiverstom - Lead RP - 02/Apr/13 with Alice

TCCB - Lead β - 17/Feb/13

Amazing flowy climbing. Felt really nice putting the draws in from the lower off on Poema and checking for blind holes before giving it a blast.
KKilroy - Lead β - Feb/13

Had perfect beta still felt hard
Haydn Jones - Lead β - 18/Jan/13 with andy tappar
