Project for the trip having failed on it many times over the previous 2 years. sent first time today, so happy. the good holds were ticked which probably helped a lot. good flash from Shaun.

Very red-pointable. Will get it this trip if I go back tomorrow/Thursday...
mrtom - Lead dog - 17/Oct/10 with Laurence Weil

Got it second try!
lanky_bastard - Lead RP - 26/Sep/10

3rd go. Everything fell into place easily once I'd found the good bit of the big slot above the crux. Used it as a warm-up for Magnetus after the send because it's not pumpy!

Dougie Harvey - Lead RP - 23/Sep/10 with Morgan Woods, George, Iain Cattanach, Richie Pardede

1 RP go. Skin and strength gave out. Good route.

phil64 - Lead - Nov/09

Followed all the wrong chalk marks at the crux. Big holds to the crux and after. Bouldery, didn't try to redpoint it. Too many better routes to try!
kevg - Lead dog - 14/Oct/09 with Mike, Pete H

Red pionted, then sent clean. At least 6 attempts. Skipped crux bolt, cant reach. GETS 7B IN NEW GUIDE?
llevick - Lead RP - 12/Oct/09 with .

Hidden - TR dog - 09/Oct/09

1 fall on crux - the route right to a good pocket at crux is clearly from people dogging the route...crux move is to go left and use the sharp pockets/pinches up to hole...fingertips must be fresh! Good route and one I will return for

Gets a 7b in the guide, but its reasonable/soft at that. Got this 1st lead attempt after looking at the holds on a top rope
