Messed up the sequence on the top slab, and the move round the bulge was tricky enough!Tom.Priestley - 2nd O/S - 21/Sep/14 with Scott Quinn
Class climbing the crux isn't as confusing as everyone makes out, although my second nearly fluffed it twice and he's the grit DIVA.
Gear in the flake is pretty decent, the top didn't feel like it was 5b felt 5c still but that's probably due to bricking 'um

E1 5c start into an E2 5c traverse into a soft E3 5b finish? Maybe the most fluttery I've felt on an onsight !? Struggled to keep myself together on the top slab. Eeeeeeek!

drysori - Lead O/S - 30/Nov/13 with Dan B
Epic. Went slightly too far left at the top and slapped up for a particularly muddy bit of the break. Came off and all 3 bits of gear in the flake ripped. The only things which stopped me hitting the ground were a high side runner and Alex running down the hill to take in slack. Broken fibula!
georgeevans88 - Lead dnf - 24/Nov/13 with Alex Winter
Grippy! Hard move round the bulge followed by tenuous smearing to the break. Very intense. Top confused me as there was no gear in the break and the climbing turned nails. Went up the easy arete but BMC guide suggested the easy crack in hindsight. Solid E2 anyway!

Bill Lawrence - Lead dnf - 25/Sep/10 with tommy martin
I'd suggest getting someone to brush the top break before going for an onsight. The last move on the slab it a bit intense on lead and it doesn't help if the top-out is covered in scrittle, grass, heather, mud and other assorted detritus. Breathtaking lead though. Probably the best route I've done on grit.
