Tim lead P1, and I, P2. Surprised to find one of the heavily chalked-up holds near the crux was loose. I did not use it - possible, if a bit harder, though I guess it could easily make a leader panicked.masa-alpin - AltLd O/S - 22/Sep/13 with Tim P

Fun, yes. Exposure, definitely. Do not think actually trusted any hold to actually stay in place. The final pull through on near vertical mud and grass was terrifying!
Stuart_Burbidge - Lead O/S - 10/Jul/13 with Henry Francis
I graciously gave stu the p2 lead, even after winning rock paper scissors for it as it was on his wishlist. p2 had great exposure but did seem very loose?!

Amazing route, spicy seconding. Escape/descent much less amazing, more spicy and very unpleasant due to monster nettles fuelled by a summer of rain.

P1 much better than it looked, delicate and interesting climbing. P2 a bit of a rush, I wish I could have hung around a bit taking in the exposure. Horrible descent through nettles and veg.

Joughton - Lead O/S - 19/May/12
Led 2nd pitch.. Had insulated jacket on during climb due to snow and freezing temp. Made climbing pitch 2 a very hot experience indeed..! Decent was tricky as grass was snow covered so had to abseil down slope.

Led throughout. Ultra mega stonking exposed second pitch. Not sure how anyone gets overpumped at 'the thread' though, could have paused for ever there. Most of the climbing felt steady with careful footwork, albeit a bit heavy sometimes yarding between the massive jugs!
