Just one really worrying move. Easy, but not confidence-inspiring.
Just Another Dave - Solo O/S - 05/Jul/15

Great route, no real choice for protection following the route, maybe try a lead next time (with a pointless rope)!
Rotorslap - 2nd O/S - 07/Jun/15 with Graeme Hill

Followed Graeme up. Found the moves easy enough, but think it would be a different story on the sharp end.
peachos - 2nd β - 07/Jun/15 with Rotorslap, Graeme

Cleaned on lead. Rope trailed for eleanor to do slab climb.
BenedictIEP - Solo O/S - 23/Jul/14 with Eleanor Jones

Had to scrub vital footholds with a toothbrush before each move!
jshields - Solo - 18/Aug/13

Realised very early on that this climb had no protection. Decided to solo with the option to grab a top rope if needed. Got a 1/4 up and struggled with my feet. Climbed the remainder on a top rope. Still very tough climb. Although the rope was slack, don't think I could commit to the moves needed with out any protection

J25 - 2nd - 17/Apr/11 with Tom Stapleton, Luke Donaldson

Geared up with some small pieces placed nothing and topped out a bit green but very good!
grubes - Lead O/S - 17/Apr/11 with Tom Stapleton, Jonny Owen

Fun enough to repeat.

Tom Stapleton - 2nd O/S - 17/Apr/11

Needed brush off some of the holds. Nice warm up though.
Alex Thompson - Solo rpt - 30/Jun/10

quite dirty but enjoyable none the less.

Bit necky, but easy angled slab climbing. Could have done with a brush!
Alex Thompson - Lead O/S - 30/May/09 with Chris Tan

Utterly terrifying, even done on top rope. Fantastic way to improve the technical side of my climbing. How many calories do you burn while having the fear?
