Should have ticked it but ran out of energy on second to last day. 4 RP attempts, couldn't get past the crux on lead clean from the ground. Frustrating! After falling off, got it every time.

First redpoint attempt. The crux is hard but not "nasty" as the guide makes out. Rest of the route is wonderful jug pulling. Great fun!

Spicey finale, feels hard to make it feel easy.

Brilliant! No nasty moves just a little reachy and not sustained - grreat reast in the pod/corner to the right before the crux! bit scary at the top when it was wet and run out a little

A good 6c to a 'malham 7a' crux; reachy,fingery and nasty.
Alex Mason - Lead O/S - 10/Apr/10 with Laura Perry

Tough crux. Still felt 7a though as it's not very sustained.
Andrew Barker - Lead O/S - 05/Apr/10 with Cat Black

Quite pumpy with a couple of back to back hard moves in the middle.
Will Hunt - TR dog - 27/Mar/10 with Sean Jacobs

2 dogs of the route. the crux stopped me, would of like to have finished it off but the top was wet for the rest of the trip.
tomhull - Lead dog - 26/Feb/10 with Liam Lonsdale

WET finishing holds resulted in an unexpected pop off the top.
liamlonsdale - TR dnf - 26/Feb/10 with Tom Hull

much better than i thought it would be. a good option if there is a que on poema de roca. slopped off wet jugs at top after several days worth of seepage
