Dave Mayes 17/May Lead RP

1st redders, nice route. Climbed in the pouring rain.

Matt Broadhurst 08/May Lead RP

1 st redpoint after one play on the moves, never have i climbed so bad and got the route.

theomoore 03/Apr Lead RP

Great moves. Nearly got it first session, a few holds were wet on the 2nd. Dried them off and then on my redpoint I fell after the crux from a wet undercut. Went again, started falling out of the same undercut, let out a cry and then stuck the hold when I thought I was definitely off - was so surprised I held on!

MartinPL 25/Oct/15 Lead

About 5-6 tries, finally done when found static way for both cruxes, do-able every single time (in opposite to throwing way with its low percentage)

Nick Sherring 25/Oct/15 TR dog

one go on the rope. Moves all doable, quite reachy.

Duncan Campbell 18/Oct/15 Lead RP

Surprised to do this in a session! Found the dynamic move to the break pretty low percentage but the rest feels pretty steady to me just the odd tricky move thrown in to keep you on your toes. Think it was maybe about 3rd/4th RP?

Clips up, one TR, nap, 1st RP send! Cool crimpy moves, probably lots of different possible beta.

First F7c :) Went 5th RP attempt overall, first tonight.

4 failed rp attempts, got thrrough the crux on all of them, but fell from the first big throw twice and the second (last hard move) twice. Argh - will surely go soon though.

with Chris Foster
Si dH 26/Aug/12 2nd dog

Did all the moves this time. Also did two reasonable links, one from below the crux to after the first hard post-crux move, and one from just after the crux to the top. All on top rope - ready to get on lead next visit.

More training required before I could link all the moves on this. Maybe a late-year goal.
