Used the rope I put up on Finale. Climbed further left than necessary on the no holds section, couldn't have led hear but should revisit and climb closer to finale to lead it.

Wevcore - TR O/S - 09/Mar/14 with Jen Gilbert

The tough section felt quite committing on small holds and no feet, with a potentially sizeable fall on approaching the last bolt. First clean O/S 6c

Not as bad as I thought it was going to be. should have lead it really but it was going dark and the rope was already up.

"Holdless section" is very hard, but if you trust your feet, it can be done. I liked this climb a lot.

khumbu-Kid - Lead O/S - Mar/13 with Ross

A bit pointless and contrived. Accidentally spanned out to the crack first time around. Mantled past holdless section up and left on second go.

morgan91 - Lead - 19/Sep/12

Climbed way out left of bolts up the streaky patch just right of the arete... felt harder than 6c maybe 7a?
Dom Cordner - TR RP - 17/Sep/12

Hidden - Lead O/S - 07/Sep/12

Tried to take a more pure line, avoiding the crack totally this time. Eventually worked it without crack and using just one protusion near the LHS of crack - is that in or out ? God knows, but done this way it feels significantly harder than 6b routes I am getting up.
jandyd05 - Lead dog - 05/Sep/12 with Ian Warren

Felt painful. Managed to stay out of the crack completely by using a 1 finger slopey crimp and then a 2 finger slopey crimp higher up. Once at the larger crimp its done
partz - Lead RP - 01/Sep/12 with Alex Battery

Followed line as per guide, used crack once for right hand at start and a couple of nobbles close to the crack but not sure if they're allowed or not. UKC description says not but guide makes no reference

Got the moves and holds, sticking just left of the bolt line most of the way up. Needs linking together next time, another one for the leading list once worked :)
