The bottom part is where you dream of being big and the top is where you are BIG. All the stars!! Such fun moves, first the mono and sidepull and really balancing footwork while you're pulling hard then a fantastically committing finish.

1 move wonder at the top. Bottom fine and avoided the mono.
Ian Bell - Lead dog - 04/Jul/15 with Tania T

A climb of two halves - one part technical and mono-packed, the other bold and reachy!

Interesting and fingery vertical climb for the first bit. Committing move to reach for the top from a lay back on good jug. Did not get that one. Nice technical climb though.
netgull - TR dnf - 24/Aug/14

Slipped off first try due to excessive mud. Nailed it the second time. Hardest move is the top
Chris Redding - Lead rpt - 07/Jun/14 with Marc Perkins

Nice climb, struggled at start till I found another hand hold, then good going from there, could not complete the last move to the top edge, powerful with little for feet

Once you have the sequence of moves this climb is fine. The first move and the last are the hardest. The last one is made easier by getting the top jugs and putting the right foot high

Cedric did very well leading, until the top boulder. I was scared and had to top rope. Small footholds, fun 1.5 finger pocket halfway. We can't get through the top boulder!!!
