Hardest Trad Lead to date. Better than Solstice. Bomber gear untill the run out top bit. Ran out the Direct finish. excellent route

darcan - TR O/S - 25/May/14

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.

In no way is this 5c not even hard 5b!
Andy Peak 1 - Lead - 10/Apr/13 with Will

Freezing cold, literatly. Hot aches in toes and hands. Slipped at the bottom before the 5c bit.
