Toes in agony. Failed.

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

3rd go, used the other two trying to find out where to go.
Nathaniel Larsson - Lead RP - 29/Jun/13 with Louise Hall

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

Sam Simpson - 2nd RP - 18/Jun/13 with Mark Grist

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

Hidden - Lead β - 14/Aug/11

Ground up. Not E2!
willworkforfoodjnr - Lead RP - 17/Apr/11 with Nick

Took short fall from start of crack before leading clean, had plenty of beta.
Alex Thompson - Lead β - 17/Apr/11 with Nick Allen

E1 if you know you are reaching up to a big pocket + gear! Otherwise fairly difficult to grade.
Ahab - Lead dog - 10/Apr/11

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