ground up. should have onsighted but was very greasy in the sun on the last tricky move. let it cool down abit and it was fine.

flashed crux but guide made it sound like there would be gear after the break i just found sand and wetness. crux was quite easy for e4 though

first time - not too bad, couple of thin crimpy moves on small but positive holds low down

The moves past the break are extremely committing and thin, then as the holds appear to get better there is nothing for your feet. Was so pumped I could barely finish!

seemed a lot harder than drought, which also gets E4 6a in the new book. bolt heads look to have been used as holds!

with no gear pre placed and worked on TR 5 times solid good route with 3 cams (bomber) in the break crux is gr8 but there is a process to it which makes it so much easier :D

James led it first and I attempted a tope rope. Got pumped silly quick and found the halfway break full of moss so hard to rest on. Needless to say I failed.
R8JimBob88 - TR dnf - 13/Apr/10 with James

Nice moves, strenuous to get into the groove, but brilliant. toproped 4 times, and led with what little gear there is pre-placed, and a tied on spotted on the ledge.

It looked dry. It wasn't. I can't believe I didn't slip off- felt E5 today.
Franco Cookson OLD - Lead O/S - 13/Dec/09 with Dan Lane

A quick top-rope solo effort - great climbing though, will be back to lead this at some stage!
