Dan Jenkin - Lead O/S - 03/Oct/15 with Rebecca Partridge

Just my style - crimpy and technical at the bottom until the joint sidepull with the route to the left - after which the handholds improve but foot holds somewhat disappear Would be brilliant if a bit longer

Cool route on positive holds. Feet require a bit of thought to stay on.

held draw for two seconds to clip, clean apart from that. feet slowly peeter out
benkelsey - Lead dog - 14/Apr/12 with Dan Heath, Remus Knowles

One rest at the crux as I couldn't get my right hand off for a shake and didn't read the next move quickly enough. Not my style at all but its good to work your weaknesses! Not a bad effort I suppose if it gets 7a (we didn't have a topo).

Great climbing on good side pulls , with a barn door to resist towards the top. Nice route.

My favourite style of climbing - small holds, just off vertical. Did it fairly quickly and didn't find it particularly pumpy even though it was fairly sustained for a few metres. The consensus was that it's actually hard 6c+ or easy 7a - I'd go with that on the basis that it didn't feel that hard! Pleased to get it onsight in any case.
Misha - Lead O/S - 12/Mar/11 with Ed

Did the moves, but with several rests. Misha belayed.
