BenedictIEP 23/Jul/14 Lead dnf

Toes in agony. Failed.

Alex Thompson 23/Jul/14 Lead dog

Took over the lead after Ben jibbered, managed to fluff the move above the crack. No problems after that.

Nathanie1 29/Jun/13 Lead RP

3rd go, used the other two trying to find out where to go.

Louise Hall 29/Jun/13 2nd dog

Lovely climb, messed up the sequence going out left and had to rest.

Sam Simpson 18/Jun/13 2nd RP
Mark Grist 18/Jun/13 Lead RP

I aborted my first attempt and left the gear in situ. Straight forward the second attempt on mostly pre placed gear.

Found the crack a battle but possible couldn't get established on the upper wall

Just Another Dave ??/2012 Lead β

Led on Jo's gear. Soft touch with little cams (would have been proper bold value before them days).

Ground up. Not E2!

Alex Thompson 17/Apr/11 Lead β

Took short fall from start of crack before leading clean, had plenty of beta.

with Nick Allen
Ahab 10/Apr/11 Lead dog

E1 if you know you are reaching up to a big pocket + gear! Otherwise fairly difficult to grade.

Graeme Hammond 09/Apr/11 Lead β

no Johns gear, which probably affected the grade, not sure i like leading on pre placed gear. Nice moves, a quality grit micro route
