maxkellock - Lead O/S - 07/Nov/10

Has a very misleading grade, would expect good gear on a VS 5a, however didn't find a single piece until 6-7 meters off the deck. Essentially a solo with a bit of gear for the last few moves.

simeclimb68 - Solo O/S - 30/Aug/10

Took a few attempts to get pulled on properly, Worth more than 5a I reckon. Not sure what I'd got myself into once I couldn't reserve where I was but really enjoyed the moves.
Oliver Branagan - Solo O/S - 29/Aug/10

haydng - Lead RP - 22/Aug/10 with Richard Gilbert

HARD move off the deck for shorties and then a lovely set of delicate moves.
