An excellent climb with contrasting halves. The steep upper section is best climbed quickly. When everything looks lost at the top try reaching blindly for the good hold. © ROCKFAX

Desperate unclipping on top rope! Wish I'd had beta for the top move as that is where I came unstuck. Very hard at bottom too especially for the short.

Enjoyable overhang climbing with double heelhooks to finish.
Qisheng Xie - Lead O/S - 21/Apr/13 with Aaron Clifford

Excellent Climbing with left and right heel hooks making the ending a little more bearable. one more move and i would have been off!
Gile5 - Lead RP - 21/Apr/13 with Aaron Clifford

My favourite climb of the trip, watched a pair on it for a good while so knew exactly what to do.

Put the draws up, saw noone climb it, a real onsight! Really fun. Thought it was a 6c+. Did say to a mate "one more move and that would have been 7a in my opinion" close call guess it will feel a bit easy for the gym rats.
Pankake - Lead O/S - Apr/13

dan gibson - Lead O/S - 27/Nov/12 with julie carroll

Had seen some people on it earlier so knew how to do the final crux. Thought this was my first 7a flash but since discovered the 2010 guide has downgraded it to 6c+ :(

Stopped by the crux right at the top.
DavidR - Lead dog - 19/Sep/12 with Holly Adamthwaite

6c+ in book but harder than Dionysos I think, 7a seems right. May just be due to poor warm-up though.
