This climb! Had me freaked out and nervous, clipping stuff early on and awkwardly only to find the next move easy enough not to worry so much. Went to give up but summoned some strength from somewhere and pulled onto the ledge with a shout of joy screaming **** you Mr. Faz!

Really badly bolted and feels more like trad than a sport climb should. Nice positions though and sort of worth it.
Alex Hallam - 2nd β - 01/Jun/14 with Matt Rust

Kind of good, sort of fun.

tried this a few years ago and i barley got to the top and had at least 4 falls. warmed up on it to day with ease :). I thought the bolting was fine?

Rich led but after hurting his shoulder had to pull out. I followed up to recover gear, took a big fall and swing pulling up to the ledge. Started again but got no further than Rich.

Ground-up, second try. Too sweaty on O/S attempt to hold the big jug while bridging up the crux.

Good, route, has a trad/exposed feel. Much better than the description suggest. A bit hard to for the grade if you want to onsight it.

Much better than the description. Took a while to work the central moves but well worth it. Just be aware of the last ledge, it was filthy. :-D
Mattzx6r - Lead dog - Sep/09 with Stu

A lot of fun with some big moves :) Doesn't work out as over-hangy as it looks. I cheated a bit on last bolt. I'll do it better next time. Been wanting to do this one for a while. Bit hesitant but had a blast at it anyway.
