I think this as hard as Sodom.

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!

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.
