Grigri ascent. Wonderful pumpy climb, finishing with a scary crux (bolts well apart up here!). Soapy rock didn't help (really humid) - nor route-finding error. When got it all together; great. I imagine this would be a tricky onsight.

Collecting gear after Mathias took a bit of a fall and banged his knee. I didn't fancy the last bit either, particularly after Mathias had come off, so I just lowered off a bolt.

bit of a scary one. kept my head and climbed quite well until the second to last bolt, nearly fell above bolt with a handful of slack. finished easily after.

Nice route overall, one trickier move towards the top but there is a good pocket which makes it easy once you know where to go

As others have stated, very loose at the top, which rattled me enough to make the move to the last bolt seem probably harder than it is. Backed off at this point. Not a great route by any standards.

Difficult to read top and make final clip. Got it clean 2nd go. Clip aside the top sequence is nice. Did not feel loose, but do mind the hanging block by the 3rd bolt - when it goes it will not be pretty!!!!
gibsond - Lead RP - 15/Apr/13 with Alan Blanchflower

Top section felt very hard for 6a+.

damn! couldn't clip last bolt.

Hard but enjoyable climb. Really enjoyed top section. Bit loose in places.
Connorsgrandad - TR - 09/Jun/12 with Karl gregory, William Jackson

I actually really enjoyed this route despite the tricky to read crux sequence, flash-pump and the loose rock at about 2/3 height (stick to the right to avoid the worst of the loose stuff).

Did this today and top section is falling apart really dangerous and loose

Loose at the top, pussyed out and came down. Needs a clean Marti ;)

Losse rock around 3/4 height, bit of a run out, feels very sketchy
Semtex - Lead dnf - 12/Feb/12 with lizzard

Loose band of rock at 3/4 height is a bit dodgy.

Ed Babs - Lead O/S - 15/Oct/11 with Mike Hawkins

very loose near top, pulled out couple of holds, big run out, got a little scared.
Montse Shelbourne - Lead dnf - 15/Oct/11

Nice line but loose. Run-out section up to last bolt due to unstable rock being impossible to bolt. I removed two bag-of-sugar sized holds from this section. Take care.
jtree03 - Lead - 24/Jul/11 with dazza

Richard Horn - Lead O/S - 15/May/11

run out before the last bolt. lost holds I suspect?
Jonathan Emett - Lead O/S - 27/Oct/10 with ed, karen

Loose at the top, however I think my new holds are better than the originals:)
