Clip stick to the top and the final move is instantly worked out, bit thin for the feet but ok, maybe 6b?

philhaigh - Lead RP - 30/Jul/14 with Shamina Kapadia

Didn't find the last move too bad. Nor particularly reachy. Maybe I did something weird.
Nick Russell - Lead O/S - 13/Jul/14

drcorbasisgod - Lead O/S - 19/Jun/14

Top moves reachy and quite blind,rather unnerving. Sweaty greasy conditions did not help!
mattgrange - Lead dnf - 25/May/14

Took me a while to figure out the top.
Alex Winter - Lead O/S - 09/May/14 with Ben's stag

Cheese Monkey - Lead O/S - 09/May/14

Couldn't do the first loooong move of the crux headwall.

adamjeffs - Lead O/S - 20/Aug/13

Great route, took a whipper after a few aborted attempts at top section, will be back to get this one clean.
Uberpussy - Lead dnf - 10/Aug/13

Jonathan Emett - Lead rpt - 04/Aug/13 with Paul

The jug near the top seemed to lead me into a blind alley - then going left/direct was a bit reachy (on awful left foot).
philhaigh - Lead dog - 18/Jul/13 with Shamina Kapadia

Last move is scary and run out... took a couple of big falls but found nothing at the top to grab onto. Amazing (type 2) fun.
phardy - Lead dnf - 30/Jun/13

Stanners - Lead O/S - 23/Jun/13 with Alex Rhodes, James Rich, Jack Bradbrook

Absolute bollocks for your feet at the top, pretty much forced to campus the last move.

Top was way too run out with blind moves - not for me.
sam.sam.sam.ferguson - Lead dnf - 28/Apr/13 with Rob Gates, Steph

Would have got this if the rain hadnt made the top crux crimp wet!
dprctr - Lead dog - 09/Mar/13 with Fiona McFarlane

chrisclimber - 2013

Onsighted it up until the last move. Then took a whipper trying to figure it out. Managed it on top rope later so I'll be back!
Lyndsay Superclimber - Lead dnf - 08/Dec/12 with Mark S

1 rest.
mark schramm - Lead dog - 08/Dec/12 with Lyndsay

easy 'til last sequence. You hope after the three crappy moves that you'll find a jug to get the last clip from - you won't.
bradfry - Lead dog - 11/Nov/12 with Lawrence

Hidden - Lead β - 29/Sep/12

climbed to within a foot of the lower off but due to injury down climbed to final bolt and escaped left onto neighbouring route to lower off.
jon_gill1 - Lead dog - 22/Sep/12 with Gemma Gill

tomB - Lead O/S - 15/Sep/12 with Jody

Cracking route! Really pleased to get the onsight of this, after just doing Wedding Daze (6b). Got quite pumped on the steep first section, I went up the corner and Matt went straight up the face which maybe looked easier. There's a couple of good rests before you launch up the (completely different) top section which is pretty spicy!
UnkArl - Lead O/S - 08/Jul/12 with Matt

All these routes were climbed between 15th-22nd June 2012. Fantastic climbing.

Big fall run out at the top
lewiz - Lead dog - 08/Oct/11 with Vlad Vishnyakov

Much too hard for me to do clean - got mostly boosted over the overhang by Mark belaying!

Being presented with that move at the end is harder to deal with than actually doing it.
keithpeck - Lead O/S - 16/May/10

Failed at the final move after moving out onto the arete.
SamuelHarris - TR dnf - 16/May/10 with Keith Peck

Really nice 6a+/6b climbing up to the last move, then - bam! - 6c. Couldn't make the last RH edge. I'll be back for you, sunshine.
