Hard, fell off 3 times. Once trying to reverse back along the traverse and again in the groove. The traverse is scary, hard moves when you are quite a long way to the left and above your gear..

A fine route. Led with in-situ gear through most of the hard stuff after Mike lowered off. This no doubt helped!

Great. Polished in the groove - took a line of flakes slightly right of the crack and joined it at the top, making a bold and difficult move to clip the peg!

Really cool move going for the jug after the peg, (easy to catch if you're falling leftwards). Traverse is much easier if you go right and down an extra move to the good footholds below the big hold rather than try and span.

First E4! Thought the first traverse along the undercut break was nails, but the rest above was most welcome. The moves on the peg scars felt easier than the traverse, though they are getting a bit polished! Thought the final run out above the flake was a bit scary but that just added to the route.

Tried to lead it (on mike's gear) in darkening light and pumped out after getting to the peg below the jug clean...a rest let me see a foothold which made the move easy. Decided to strip gear, climb back down to peg and ab off. Should go next time!

Tried previous year, could not get across to the overlap.Still very hard. Probably good as the rest is even harder. Lots of 6a with the occasional 5c. Shattered at the end.

Lobbed on a jammed wire by the first hard bit due to cowardice, and abbed off it cunningly a few times. Worked the move out for next time though.
Paz - Lead dnf - 15/Sep/08 with TS
Fell of the undercut moves first go, it was the first and only route of the day so my excuse is I wasn't warmed up! Lowered off and did it ground-up next go. Amazing climb, a contender for the best trad route I've ever done.
