gemmatrickey - Lead - 18/Apr/15
Scary - nice to find a sport route with a trad-style fear factor! I hope no more bolts are added as bold runout is what defines the route. It is easy to see the offending section in advance, and the leader can make a choice either to boldly go or to retreat onto the arete. I expect it will get bolted soon, but it will be a shame to ruin the excitement/terror!
The overhang at the end was nice too. 2 stars from me!

After the last quickdraw, go straight on, the anchors will be above the last overhang. A lot of rope drag on the way down and split a bit far apart.

Somewhat exciting for the first climb of the day. The bit up the groove is a bit border line and as the book says - substantial fall potential!

Found it easier than "Talk". Very safe start as you can clip first bolt from boulder next to route wouldn't deck out when clipping second bolt. Fred top roped

Tom87 - Lead dog - 21/Nov/10
Hard. Scary. Run out. Lots of falls. I got the first three clips in without too much trouble, but nearly crapped myself going for the 4th. A long way above the previous clip, bridged with both legs shaking and the bolt still out of reach. I don't know how I made it.
Note to belayers: ANCHOR YOURSELF. If your climber takes a big fall, you'll get thrown bodily into the wall.
flatcap - Lead dog - 02/Oct/10 with Karl
Numerous falls at the crux, eventually worked out a foot sequence and finished it off.
I strongly suggest belayers anchor themselves (or brace firmly) at the bottom as I got yanked off the boulder and cheese-gratered down the wall when Rich fell (I didn't drop him though!).

Did this just after high tide, and CoffeePot didn't get wet at all, though it made lowering off more interesting that it might have been.
Grabbed the third QD through fear of unbalancing, but the rest was alright, despite the runout feel.
