Used a micro wire above boulder problem and same wires as on VS at brake. CAM looked really bad so didn't bother with it. Fun moves. Checked out moves as lowered off VS

First E2! Short and sweet, sketchy gear and shame about the missing peg, wouldn't want to test the cam in the pocket...

My first E2.The v4 bouldering start is manageable and follow by the only protection on the route, a green camalot C4, finish with high feet and a nice side pull to a jug.

No peg, bit spicy, there is gear but it's fiddly and not awe-inspiring.

Second attempt. Peg has disappeared which makes it bold for E2.
Jon Didymus - Lead RP - 08/Mar/12 with Rich

dodgy. no peg and gear looks poor. E3 is much more realistic a grade.

My first E2 onsight. I physically threw up before hand to save weight, no joke. Pretty pissed when I got passed the crux (v4 bolder problem start) and found that the critical peg had been removed by some doucher and as a result I had to make some sketchy 5b moves above dodgy wires.
Quarryboy - Lead O/S - 15/Apr/11 with Rob Stanfield

had to practice the crux a little but was OK after that. Looks like an E3, so congrats jack!
Stanners - 2nd RP - 15/Apr/11 with Jack Bradbrook

Fairly dynamic start to latch the good ledge. Quite thankful that the only Friend I has was a number 2 - fitted reasonably well in the pocket. Peg looks in decent nick - couple of small wires in some really hollow sounding placements to back them up.
