Struggled at first due to slightly greasy conditions and poor route finding. Got it on second lead attempt after a clean ascent on top rope to figure out the moves. Definitely better friction keeping left. A great line in an awesome position makes for a great photo...

Sick route,nice movement. Strange limestone,quite glassy but with dots of flint friction in it,keep an eye out for the friction on the top slab before the chains.

Went bolt to bolt to put clips in and then on red-point came off when moving up to undercut. No time to do it again.

The greasiest day in the world! Got to the top third before slipping off a small sidepull. Nice route. 2nd go
Tom Livingstone - Lead RP - 25/Jul/13 with Jamie Hawton

2nd try. Went too far right on O/S attempt, cruised it second go.

Bit gutting to pop off from wet holds first go, turns out the alternate (dry) method was easier. Superb!

Gutted not to get OS....made all the moves up and was fairly tired so rushed the last move and came off!!!! Should know better.

wow, wow, wow, what an amazing climb, totally blew my mind. Hard to onsight, I got caught up on the crux with a couple of options and peeled off, but it's just so fun. Really well bolted, and a great atmosphere.

Good climb, very nice position. Only just cleaned it. Getting pretty pumped at top. Did a very ungraceful knee finish onto ledge
