Not convinced I did the right line. I followed the obvious line of holds but it felt very eliminate albeit around the right grade.

Feels easy for the grade with the right sequence: just a couple of moves, crimping hard. (Gear beta alert: less bold with good offset cam in small pocket above break - confirmed by testing!)
Andy Clarke - Lead RP - 08/Jun/13 with Alex

not E3? definitly a bad landing if you fall but felt really soft

Saw another guy take the worst-case fall, and was fine, so I had to give it a go. One move, not too bad really. Had two cams and two nuts, all solid gear.
jacobjlloyd - Lead β - 10/Oct/10 with Ed Searle

A very nice one move wonder, but with a pretty horrendous landing should you fall off. Sadly easily escapable.
Trefo - Solo O/S - 18/Oct/09

Matt Bennett - Solo O/S - 10/Oct/09 with Luke Copley, Lewis Grey

First E3! Bold, and requiring good finger strength to pull on tiny pebbles. Joy slightly tainted by midge attack at 7pm just as setting up belay.
LoopyLou - Lead O/S - 22/Aug/09 with Helen Lear / Pinnacle meet

Pali led the corner to the right, but handily belayed close enough to the top of this that it was rude not to try it. A 2 move wonder really.
