Chapter closed: hardest line to date. Had all the moves dialled but was still surprised when I pulled over the top. Really great sequence and moves, very enjoyable, hard climbing. ***
lewiz - Lead RP - 26/Jul/13 with Endre Joachim Mossige

Two falls trying to do the roof. Big progress. It should go soon.

Fantastic route, unfortunately I powered out before I could make the redpoint. One for next time...

Got my sequence through the crux perfect first try (warm-up) but couldn't repeat it. Wasn't in the game mentally.
lewiz - Lead dog - 15/Jun/13 with Tom Stone

Clipped sticked up and tried it twice. Hard move to side pull then hard move to left pinch. Done on a tight rope. Top was ok, it seems you can go left, right of straight over. It is a great route. Take a while to go.
Wayne.Gaudin - TR dog - 03/Jun/13 with Janice

Very sequency and hard but main difficulties are short lived. Great route

3rd RP over 2 days. Awesome climb but felt pretty tough for 7b. So many different ways of doing every section! Eventually picked the right combination!

tough route, not too strenuous but lots of technical bridging. had a guidebook fail and took the top roof direct which was hard and very blind. definite kudos to any OS accents, v hard to read first go. looking forward to trying it again.

Surprised to find it went really quickly in the end - two more days on it (all on lead) 16-17/03/12. Got it first redpoint, first go on sat after getting clips in. Great technical sequence - not very many hand moves but loads of foot moves. Feels a tough cookie to begin with but steady when you have the sequence dialled. Not many very hard moves but lots of quite hard moves that keep coming at you. Borderline 7b/+, possibly the best line at the cuttings? (TR on 05/06/11 w/ Iain & Hazel - raining, only thing dry - 2 goes, bit half hearted; TR on 29/05/11 2x goes. Awesome. Done all the moves, though the crux is quite close to my limit.)

2nd go. Really good. Not that sutained imo but the crux section is bouldery with awesome 3D moves. Warm the hips up first.

Much trouble linking the crux; went away for 4 month and came back and did first go, having put draws in on abseil. getting stronger? I adore this route.
jgustafsson - Lead RP - Sep/10 with Pino

Great route, with some cool moves, leave some energy to drag yourself over the roof at the top though!
