1RP. Felt flashable,but poor(warm/humid) conditions and I didn't quite get sidepull up at the last bolt quite right on flash. Skipped last bolt, lots of really good holds.

Stewart B - Lead RP - 02/Sep/10 with Nick Deboost, Dave Redpath

First RP of the day after dogging to warm up and put the clips in. Really nice technical climbing.
jkarran - Lead RP - 09/Aug/10 with Grant

Not sure what more I need to do, can link it in two almost full height sections but can't seem to string it together. Ending up exhausted rather than pumped.

Close but too tired, need to be feeling fresh.
jkarran - Lead dog - 26/Jul/10 with Grant

Good progress. Felt very hard to begin with but gradually all came together. To tired for a decent RP attempt in the end.
jkarran - Lead dog - 25/Jul/10 with Aly

Hidden - Lead RP - 25/Jul/10

Fell off the very, very last move on flash (would have flashed had i known about the crimp up right, parallel to finishing flake) went second go. Also fell off at the last draw twice on 'the bulge'.

Dan 85 - Lead RP - 10/Jul/09 with Alex & Matt

Certainly not the best sequence at the top - made a crazy cross over to the juggy flake with my right hand, left foot on an invisible smear! first F7b(+!!) flash!
Matt Fry - Lead β - 09/Jul/09 with Dan Woolnough

Hidden - Lead RP - 08/Jul/09

7 redpoints over two days yet to no avail. Leanrt a fair bit about this dark art however so it was not all in vain. Need to get a wee bit stonger and keep that power burning all the way to the chains. Remembering sequences is a another weakness identified.
mattyork2 - Lead dog - 03/Jul/09 with James Gray

Tried on-sighting Dead Calm above - got to 2nd to last bolt.
Ally Smith - Lead O/S - 01/Jul/09 with mattyork2

Third session lucky. After falling off on six redpoints previous session, it went first rp this one. There appear to be two ways of doing this route, the easy way (right into big jugs 2 thirds up, then back left) or the hard way, straight up. I did it the hard way.
robbo - Lead RP - 18/Jun/09 with north country boy

Worked Dead Calm extension
marky - Lead RP - 14/Jun/09 with Sharon

Hidden - Lead O/S - 02/Jun/09

After 3 sessions, did the hard way. Absolutely awesome route. Get some stars on it. Funky climbing all the way
robbo - Lead RP - Apr/09 with north country boy

Hidden - TR dog - 21/Mar/09

How hard is the crux.. no bloody feet! Will need a lot of practice to get clean on a lead!
loonyclimber - TR dog - 05/Jul/08 with Dave Law

Definately 7b+, not 7b.
andy farnell - Lead RP - 09/Aug/07 with ksjs

knackered on this 4th go. much better (in fact very good) than the guidebook would suggest - good technical moves. demanding at 7b ie could be 7b+. think i could get this if fresh, one to go back for...
