Seconded with dan some time last year was good to lead. the starts probably the hardest bit to be honest
JamesWilliams - Lead rpt - 02/May/14 with Dan Hale

Lovely climbing, nice and harrowing in the upper section with some delightful 'slow me down' gear. Probably hard 5b/soft 5c, and far more fun than Solstice.

Mario Grabinski - TR - 26/Aug/13 with Tom Williams

Seconded Ben on this a while ago. Decided to lead it today, great finishing moves but not hard-a few snappy/ hollow gear placements which you wouldn't want to test perhaps justify the E2 grade.
