Went up on lead, fell off the first crux - think I got the sequence slightly wrong, ended up crimping on nothing with my right and the nothing broke. Got through it second go but then didn't have te psyche to go for the top properly after I'd already blown the onsight, so just tried the move in to the flake then escaped off. Then seconded Olly up it afterwards, who cruised it.
Think the first crux is way harder than the top for me, was very surprised.

sooo hungover could barely put my own shoes on. (sobering up all day until we tried this just before it got dark. cracking lead from john though, very impressive, although kinda cold hands from belaying. Sacked it off before the flake, just could not summon any enthusiasm.
benkelsey - 2nd dnf - 20/Nov/11 with HPC
Pleased to get this. Felt steady second time round, found a decent semi-rest to place gear behind the flake but took a fair bit of psyching up to get there. On Michael's gear to the good rest.

Brilliant! Slab at bottom felt like the technical crux. Layback sequence at top well protected, if you can muster the strength to hang about that is.

One stupid fall when I muffed getting into the flake at the top, think I tried to go too far right rather than starting at the base and greased off the hold. Annoying as I'd spent five minutes resting/psyching up on the ledge so felt really fresh. Went fine second go.Wouldn't want to lob off the top though, it's a matter of get gear in and fail or press on and risk a monster. Surely one of the best E2s on grit, so varied and excellent throughout.

Rested on the gear in the horizontal break as the crux looked really hard, then just went for it, turns out it gets easier the higher you get. Should put this as 'led with falls' but just put 'lead' so it would count for Extreme Rock ticklist!

Slightly dodgy to call this an onsight - I'd been watching people climb it all afternoon, but I didn't really know much about it. Couldn't believe how easy I found the top crack - it looks much harder than it is.
