The best route at Troller's Gill starting up the left-facing corner to a ledge and then moving out left and up to finish. Pumpy and at the top of the grade. © Rockfax

First go back on sport climbing.
With dil and dean
Broke a hold which cost me the on sight. Makes it slightly harder without that jug!
|Mike Todd||15/Jul||Lead dog||
Did the whole climb but was too pumped to clip the chains. Not really the best route for a warm up!

First try today and felt fine.
|Mick r||26/May/14||Lead dog||
went clean on TR, but no energy left on the RP.
|Will Hunt||18/May/14||Lead dnf||
Flashed it to the top and grabbed the chain in a moment of fear. Stupid stupid stupid!

|Paul Figg||10/Apr/14||Lead rpt|
Warmed up getting the clips in then got it next go. Really pleased, it's such a great route and it all felt pretty steady today, helped by a cunning knee bar followed by a hands off rest on the block!

1 toprope, 2 lead attempts. Fell off the final move going to clip the chains! Should have rehearsed going right a bit more. 2nd attempt was absolutely exhausted. One to go back for!
1st try of the day. Excellent steep climbing with a sting in the tail
Finally got it. Woo!
Tried this a couple of months ago and found it hideously pumpy. Felt ok today and did it cleanly on my second go. Have to get on the lead next time!
1st 7a, 4 attempts
euro style and brilliant, soft.
Good holds all the way
bolt-bolt 3/4 of it. Couldn't do the start move on the second attempt. Much too hard for me at this gradient but the flash pump didn't help.

Very good, with some huge holds.

Ben wouldn't let me have any breakfast - that's my excuse! I'll be back. NB Trollers Gill is lovely.
Great climbing. Was E4 6a before bolting, and prob only 6c+ now it is.
Fell from the chain first go, enthusiasm sapped thereafter. A rubbish off-form session!
|Stewart B||10/Jun/11||Lead O/S||
Fell from the top undercut on the first attempt then lacked the fitness and motivation for the RP. Great route and one I was really hoping to flash. Gutted!
very nice. went right at penultimate bolt-(why?!) reversed, found top a bit gogogo as pretty pumped.

|Dave Warburton||13/May/11||Lead RP||
RP3. Just felt really on-off at the top move, did it different ways everytime. Did Barguest too, but silly slip early on and tricky to read top out, will come back. Raining but dry.

Went wrong way at top on onsight attempt. Lowered from last bolt. Did clean second go.
Clipped the wrong chain first time so went up and did it properly second go!
Worked it down to 2 rests.
Tuze, P Harris
3 goes, kept resting at the mantle. A horribly midgy day.
