Tim set of on it but couldn't get past the bulge despite the beta I gave him about needing to go out left. Seems you need to stick right and stay in the corner - sorry Tim. Next time, and I'm sure your hex will still be there.

Went into to do this the previous evening with a bit too much psyche. Both got to the bottom and both realised we had abbed without a half rope. Big scary free hanging prussik session out. Idiots. The got involved in helping some other lads haul their mate out of the Boulder Ruckle on their ab rope.
Next day found the climb to be Proper Ruckle stuff. Thuggy on massive holds. Good lead by Johnny this.

What a route !!! Looks really intimidating, but once you get going the jugs and gear keep flowing ! Most all of the first section can be bridged (taking all the strain off the arms). Couple of strenuous moves above the tat. Save a bit of strength for the top groove, as whilst juggy it's still steep. Both pegs are still in situ (although quite rusty).

cracking sunny day(to start with) with Stubsey as a stirling second ( I couldn't hear his curses). Done the old fashioned way sans chalk. forgot my bag and the freak Stubbs doesn't use it, soldiered on regardless. A grand route but not as intimidating as I thought and sparing use of pro even from me!

Brilliant climbing all the way. A few tenuous moves here and there. 2-3m runouts in places as I was afraid I might run out of quick draws! Ben was very wise when he suggested leaving the big hexes for emergancies. I only placed one under a minor stress, but I was very glad I hadn't used it in an easy position earlier.
Rope got snagged when pulling it up to the belay stake and sent three massive blocks down the cliff, thankfully Ben got out the way and there was no one else around!! The top is very loose, test all blocks with care before stepping and pulling.
