ashtond6 - Lead dnf - 11/Jul/14

Felt like all the hard moves were with the bolt below your feet! Last most really annoying if you are short! But quite a satisfying route, clean next time.

catblack - Lead dog - 13/Sep/12 with Dad

One fall missed a hold out and was off. Straight back on and to the top. Should have had this one onsight.
Diggler - Lead dog - 23/Apr/11 with Charlie, andyob

Laurence Everitt - Lead β - 09/Apr/11 with Paul Hazell, Jake Duddy, neil mackie

Awesome!!! Hard, sustained and serious feeling, if actually completely safe. Not got enough experience at the grade to comment on its relative difficulty but I was definitely glad the crux was at the bottom as I barely had enough juice left to do the easy(ish) moves to the lower off.

Clean
leon - TR - 21/Aug/10 with Mark

Tried this a few years ago & was unable to get past the second bolt so it was good to get to the top this time. Would need a few more goes to get it clean though.
leon - TR - 15/Aug/10 with Steven Davidson

Two falls by 2nd bolt, but did it clean in the end, and could barely see anything by the end - tricky when good footwork required
Chris the Tall - TR - 10/Aug/10 with Jamie V

A great route with engrossing climbing, good footwork

Not being much of a fan of Horseshoe this climb was a very pleasant surprise. Continuously technical climbing is thankfully broken up with good rests. A very good route.
