Forgot to take microwires which made it a bit bolder than necessary. Avoided using the horribly loose flake altogether.

Nice climbing. Spent a little while eyeing it up. It went as expected, not too technical. Good to have some small wires or it'll be very bold.
mcb - Lead O/S - 20/Jun/14 with Sally Byrne

Clean onsight. Got a couple of micro wires below the crux and then just winged to the top, flake is feeling seriously loose.
MischaHY - Lead O/S - 21/May/14 with Leo Woodhead

Nice route felt easy at the grade. Little run out at the top but the climbing is easy, so you never feel it! Thought the route was going to be harder than it was but the holds are all v positive.

Didn't feel E2 but I had top roped previously. Bit green today after the rain.

Will be back lead when it's not wet. The flake feels very very creaky. E2 for the flake!

Not too bad, bit scary by the cluster of small wires with the choice between a wobbly jug or tiny feet and a slippy crimp. Took the crimp

Cleaned this after the winter. Note the flake is now more creaky than ever, there is a good placement for micro cam just below the flake, so no runners in the flake please!

felt pretty easy upto the creaky flake, then i just couldnt commit to the move with poor RPs by my feet. Not a bad effort for my first route back after 6 months off though.

Top roped on a shunt. Nice stretchy moves and small holds. Looking forward to trying it on lead.

Can and was loaded with a nest of Rp's. Not as bold and hard as imagined, but nice climbing.

Psychological microwires above the break helped...
PeteH - Lead O/S - 01/Oct/09 with Brad

shunted up this, pretty committing moves using crimps and smearing to move between mantleshelf manoeuvres, crux is leaving the first wide break at 1/3rd height, possibly placement for a small wire at chest height here though its easy enough to traverse to parkers to stick a side runner in.

TR on something 'hard' for fun. Did the whole thing onsight, but bloody hell would have been terrified on lead. Most moves OK apart from the crux, with pretty much no gear to calm nerves. One for way in the future.
