Good route. Soft
Wendy - Lead RP - 29/Dec/13 with Tom Ball

Hidden - Lead dog - 19/Nov/13

All moves done but in horrible conditions very damp. looking good for next time
brices - Lead dog - 16/Nov/13 with Llinos

Much better than storm warning. First 8a. Come on!
Tomar - Lead RP - 26/Oct/13 with "Henry"

Hidden - Lead dog - 24/Aug/13

Got on it to try the crux moves. I've been on it once before but was puzzled by the moves out of the break onto Chulilla. This time I persevere, got back on, tried wrong betas for a while, which I actually managed to stick a few time but got increasingly desperate to a point where I couldn't repeat the move. Then legend Cailean Harker text me the correct beta and hey presto I was lapping the crux, but with no skin left for a redpoint. Next visit I reckon it could go. The key beta is guppy right hand the bottom edge of the block on the break and then it all becomes clear ;) Psyched to have another project at Brean
Ramon Marin - Lead dog - 18/Aug/13 with Rachel Keys

Did the linking moves,found a nice midget sequence to get past big reach,felt really hard but definately worth another go!
natalietanzer - Lead dog - 18/May/13 with archie, Be, pete

First 8a! Although very soft, definitely a grade harder than SW though.
Joe Innes - Lead RP - 15/May/13 with Tomar

Hidden - Lead dog - 27/Apr/13

Second redpoint attempt, fell after the crux on the first. Nice route, did the same day as Black Snake Moan and thought this was the better 8a of the two.
Ellis Butler-Barker - Lead RP - 19/Apr/13 with JackMac

Hidden - Lead dog - 06/Apr/13

didn't do storm warning so can't tell how much it adds - definitely soft - still took longer than it should have though!
tom106 - Lead RP - 20/Aug/12 with tom, joe.

2nd go
Cassidy - Lead RP - 14/Jul/12 with Rich Emerson

Got warmed up, a quick dog on the route then got 1st Redpoint, probably soft at 7c+
peaches69 - Lead RP - 09/Jul/12 with luke, connor

pezzerrr - Lead RP - 21/Mar/12

Great climbing. very soft for 8a. Climbed on the same day as Black Snake Moan.
Cailean Harker - Lead RP - 28/Nov/11

Did this without realising it was a link up whilst warming up for Brean Topping. Soft, more like 7c+
westyb3 - Lead RP - 04/Nov/11 with Heather Ogston

1st redpoint. really cool moves from the break to the pocket. flows really well, much better than storm warning. not that much harder tho - 7c+. Thanks yet again to flapjack for the beta & clips!
Dan Jenkin - Lead RP - 30/Jun/11 with James Marshall

good fun moves. Harder than storm warning but not 8a. 7c+. Lovely sunny eve.
Rick hard Rock - Lead RP - 30/Jun/11 with rupert

Hidden - Lead RP - 17/Apr/10

Pretty sure Pickford did this first, not me as indicated by the logbook entry?
