In afternoon sun, very hot, wished I wore some smeary shoes. My method definite F7a+. Gonna come back on a crisp morning and get it sent. Best climb there but a little polished.andyman666999 - Lead dog - 07/Sep/14 with Cathryn Johnson

An almost onsight - was told there was a kneebar just before starting - though that was fairly obvious just looking from the ground.
A great route on perfect rock climbing an unusual feature.

Tricky moves low down which is very reachy and also tricky leaving the flake. 2nd bolt is high, took a long fall reaching past it prior to clip on 1st RP attempt.

Shortarse.Crowley - Lead RP - 11/Jul/12 with Justin Critchlow
Putting the quick draws in on the lead(first time ive done this on 7a), went ok. After completing, lowered and went straight back-up on TR unclipping, did it clean again but was pertty exhausted at the top.

1st redders. Reachy move past 1st bolt, the rest is brilliant. Almost 3 stars.
Joe Costello - Lead RP - 27/Jun/12 with Ben
1st go it felt desperate (like I almost packed in and did something else desperate). 2nd go did it in two sections. 3rd & 4th goes both clean unclipping as I went. Next time on the lead.

second time in 2 days love it! still nails though and did it with placing the draws on the lead as well this time slightly easier than the first but still pumpy and you cant really afford to miss a foot hold or mess about unless you can already do the grade fairly well.

Not enough time to rest up for a good headpoint attempt. Couldn't work out the crux until notgnarly found a brilliant heel-hook crossthrough move out left; and then couldn't even do the moves lower down on top rope. Will come back when rested. Brilliant route with brilliant moves.

failed on last move out left, don't know why as I'd done that cleanly 3 times before after falling off lower down. Glad it gets the '+' on here though ;-)
