Went for the onsight/flash but was given bad beta by Guy who said I needed to jump right for the jugs at the chains instead of climbing up the crack then reaching right. got it 2nd RP as guy took top draw out and I hadnt refined my beta enough. Pretty poor bouldery route.

Path. Really surprised how easy it was as my mate (Mark Richardson) made it look desperate! Good route.

A route for boulderers. Easy lower wall and short crux section at the top. Had a small amount of beta, some of which didn't help! No need to throw for the last hold. Felt steady for 7a.
Andrew Barker - Lead β - 26/Aug/13 with Chris Taylor

Nice to get a clean on-sight on this, the final dyno/throw for the final hold is amazing, didn't even read the guide book description so it was a bit of a surprise when holds ran out at the top and ended up faffing and getting pumped before finally just jumping for it!

3 attempts but was just too pumped by the end to get the redpoint. Really nice route though, would like to return to it.
