20m. A technical start and a finish that feels bolder than it is. There is also a finish to the right, which is harder, but less bold. © ROCKFAX

Nick Allen - Lead RP - 18/Aug/12

soph - Lead β - 07/Aug/12 with jon morgan

1st crux went fairly easily. worked top crux for a while but still not sure I got the right sequence
Mick r - Lead dog - 26/Jul/12 with Miles, Olli

Great low crux sequence, easy middle section and a hidden hold on the top crux. found it of benifit to put two opposing quickdraws on the top bolt (made the top crux calmer)

James Oakes - Lead dog - 25/Apr/11 with Andy Dickerson, Josh Dickerson, Andy Lawrence

Too hot and too hard for me. Was pretty pleased to be able to clip the first bolt (it's a long way up, and not an easy reach for the short). Not so pleased when I had to get the 'draws back, though.
