Rory Shaw - 2011

Amazing route. Easy for the grade, more like hard 6b to 6b+. Possibly the direct finish would have been 6c but I went to the left a tad.
Julie Black - Lead - 2011

Flew up to 2/3 height then came a cropper on the ledge. Dogged a couple of rests then finished after another dogged rest on the last bolt. Awesome route, just wish I'd done it justice.

Amazing climb, definately not 6c, but still lovely climbing with excellent bouldery moves right at the top in a good position.

Gutted not to get this clean! Outfoxed by the crux sequence, which is surprisingly just quite technical rather than pumpy. Majority of the climb is glorious 6b-ish jug-pulling.
