Matt Cooke - Lead RP - 24/Jun/15 with Dale Comley

Too hot and struggling on crux clip. Think it needs either to be skipped or to clip from higher up. Still a brill day actually being nice and warm for once and with a cheeky ice cream on the way home!
Duncan Campbell - Lead dog - 11/Jun/15 with Laura S

Inspired by Duncan I got back on this. Everything feels less hard than before, the bulge still feels nails but at least I have a sequence. Happy with rest of the route. Good link from top of direct start to throwing for second campus rail on the bulge tonight, really keen for it. Direct nearly dry but seepage probably due tomorrow from recent rain. hmm
GuyVG - Lead dog - 02/Jun/15 with Bri

Had an exploratory red point. Fell moving right between top bulges, felt tired after yesterday, this thing should go!
Duncan Campbell - Lead dog - 31/May/15 with Robbie

Think I'm ready for an exploratory red point now. Whippers ahoy!
Duncan Campbell - Lead dog - 28/May/15 with Nick Da Beast

Cheeky pre-work hit. Got all the moves done, just need to refine the beta and then I can start going for it!! First time I've been inspired by the tor.
Duncan Campbell - Lead dog - 27/May/15 with Malc the Scott

Got through the rock over then dogged to top, need to revisit. Amazing route.

Dave Musgrove Jnr - 2015

Brilliant route.
NDD - Lead RP - 17/Aug/14

Just fantastic, going to take a bit of work. All moves done apart from the crux bulge so still a way to go. Needs to be cooler. Never been this inspired by a sport route.
GuyVG - Lead dog - 02/Aug/14

gregoritos - Lead RP - 10/May/11

Lots and lots of beta, primarily watching Zippy top rope it (easily) 2 seconds before my ascent. Move after the rockover on bottom wall the crux, hangign out for bloody ages at the break the key.

Second session, second red point attempt - fought to the very last move and then fluffed it, making a stupid mistake but excellent fun, can't wait to finish.
