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!
jonnybull - Lead RP - 25/Sep/10

2nd go
dougs1232 - Lead RP - 23/Sep/10 with Morgan Woods, George, Iain Cattanach, Richie Pardede

1 RP go. Skin and strength gave out. Good route.
catt - Lead dog - 23/Sep/10 with Dougie, Richie

phil64 - Lead - Nov/09 with rachie

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
