Marti has done a good job rebolting this route, extra bolts make the climbing feel super safe. More bolts on this than the rest of the cliff!

Standard swanage could do with one more bolt. Ed did well to clean it after fracturing his skull last time round!
Sam Husband - Lead dog - 06/Apr/15 with Ed

Woo! Defeated about 14 months after a little slip on this route. Could do with another bolt IMO, but I am biased

Did not get it first go. Then worked out a good sequence, but on RP attempt got all the way to the top and then peeled off before the lower off.

Always happy to get a 6b+ os, especially after 2 weeks off from climbing! Good climbing, we did it on a sunny day against the guidebook's recommendation and it wasn't bad at all.
