Out of Reach, Out of Mind** 6c
[Spot the Nob , 2 kb]18m. The rounded groove is a fine climb. The pocketed groove passing - but not using - the doorknob, leads to the upper break. Make some steep and committing moves to finish. © ROCKFAX

The guide book showed the finish as to the right of the chains, but after searching around the only way I could find was via a tough move to the felt of the chains. Great route!
TomRiddelsdell - Lead RP - 20/Jul/14 with Matt Beals

Felt a bit out of shape on this one. Got the moves dialed so should do it next time.

Fell on the last move on both attempts. May have been able to skip the very nasty crimp if I had a bit more reach. Going to have to come back for another shot at this one!

RFWilkie - Lead O/S - 02/Jun/13

Incredibly sharp holds, and couldn't figure out how to bridge around the doorknob.
cameron_hall - Lead dnf - 01/Jun/13 with Luke Castiglio

Even with a toprope and beta, it was move by sodding move...

nath_casper - Lead RP - 26/May/13 with Montse Shelb

Nice climb, trying to clip to the last bolt is hard for short people .. not many foot holds
Montse Shelbourne - Lead RP - 26/May/13 with Nathan

Second go. Felt easy-ish 6c., Nice route though. Finish is ok if trust the mono.

Fumbled a bit then somehow crimped through the low crux. Finale seems to have a choice of two clips ( clipped the one on the left - seemed to be safer, and follows the CC line ) - and is pretty tough with mono plus polish!
