[nowhere near the horrendous top moves!!, 5 kb]22m. A tremedous outing. Puzzling moves on the lower wall are followed by ever-increasing difficulties culminating in a devilish crux right at the top. © ROCKFAX

Almost got it putting draws in, but off at final move again. Sorted out beta and got it next go (3rd RP). Really good climb with lots of interest the whole way.

BoTTo - Lead dnf - 10/Jun/13 with Mike Elliot

Superb climbing the whole, long way. Stopper move at the top however, so have to go back and suss it out.
Fraser - TR dog - 01/Jun/13 with Lea, Iain, Ewan, Jules, Kev

1st go that day, 3rd go in total. Warmed up on Witherslack Alice
cooperman - Lead RP - 01/Jun/13 with Liam Lonsdale

3rd go. Tough - three similar cruxes using small, sharp holds in the upper section. Thankfully, the rests are (barely) sufficient. I suspect not wanting to fall on the scary looking final bolt was all that got me through the finish!
thebigfriendlymoose - Lead RP - 26/May/13 with Stephen
