I think this as hard as Sodom.

kkris - Lead dog - 31/Jul/14 with Graham

Desperate. I still struggled even though most of the gear was in from Bob's ascent! The sort of climb I'd probably have loved 30 years ago!
Dave Musgrove - Lead dog - 08/Jul/14 with Bob Larkin

Nice climb, good gear and positive holds. 15 years since I last did this route. Soft touch for the grade.

Amazed at how easy I found it after returning all these years. Once past the tricky start, the finger locks were stunning and I could hang on comfortably to place gear. So pleased!

Ace another great route. Had perfect finger locks and wires low down then ran it out a bit but the holds keep coming. Solid E1 5b** stuff as per Over the Moors and latest Rockfax.

Good lead by Andy, looked pretty pumped and knackered towards the top. Packs a fair bit in, albeit on good locks.

Ran out quite far above a single small cam for the sake of success. It was a good cam though. The holds kept coming, hands and feet. Bit green and mucky at top.
