Hannes B - Lead rpt - 05/Oct/13 with Danny
One move (a few metres below the bolt) was a solid 6a, but my choice of the holds/line might be wrong. The best single-pitch Peak limestone route I have ever done. Superb.

As one pitch. Hard E2, done easier E3s. The old bolt took another fall. Top section takes a lot of traverse left, not a move or so then up like I tried. Ran out of runners and slings to extend.
Will go clean 2nd time round, nice to see some acomplished climbers struggle with the OS from comments. Makes me feel better!

Had fallen off from on the big undercuts just after the final crux two years ago.
It takes so much effort and all-round fitness to keep going that long with that much rope out, especially if you take your time and the sun comes out. Completely exhausted at the top. Such a stunning route though.

Desperate and sustained all the way up. I led up to stance under 1st overhang (thought it was harder than 4c). A full grade harder than all the others E2s I've done over the past 2 weeks.Felt like E3 6a.
Andrew Sloan - 2nd dog - 10/Jun/12 with Martin Haworth
Neil led as two pitches. This felt like top level E2. If led as one pitch it would be extremely hard indeed.

robin_hackney - Lead dnf - 22/Oct/11 with Si
Very hard for me, good work to henry for making it to the top with no falls. I climbed up to the shelf to belay, and even then our ropes didn't make it to the tree. Borrowed a rope from the two other guys we shared the face with. Excellent day all round.

Hidden - 2nd rpt - 02/Oct/11
if done in 1 pitch i would have said E3. the top was hard especially with the fill weight of the ropes and lack of quickdraws. More medium nuts may have also helped!
markalmack - Lead O/S - 02/Oct/11 with chris todd
In one pitch, truly brilliant climb, the best I've ever done?! Went left too low beneath the bolt, felt really hard climbing above a proper run out. Would get E3 in pembroke!

Great route but felt much more like E3 5c to me, especially when done as one long pitch on 50m ropes! (Doh) Em had to start climbing while I finished up the steep groove with terrible rope drag. Took about 90 minutes to lead it, had to be very creative with gear but enjoyed the experience.....lots of cruxes, toughest ones at the top....

Didnt have ths strength left to make the last couple of pulls to jugs and had to fall off from the big undercuts after the cross-hands move - the rope weighed a tonne. Old bolt did its job.
Bit gutted, but pleased with attempt and what a route - amazing. Possibly the best pitch of climbing Ive ever been on.

Fantastic, the best single pitch route I've done to date. Have been wanting to do this for over a year. Did it in one withering pitch, lots of rests though which I took full advantage of, so it took me an hour and 50 minutes to climb it! Tom took an hour to second, which made me feel a bit less of a slow coach. :-) Used about 20 runners, which is a new record for a single pitch. Should go back and do the direct finish.
