Climbster - 2nd β - 23/Mar/14 with Vick, Ian

Ground up. Flashed the boulder problem start but didn't work out the 2nd crux quick enough, lowered off and got it next try. Only short but pretty powerful.
Bloke on a Rope - Lead RP - 23/Mar/14 with Vic, Mischa, Matt

in the dark after work! cool climb, needs more traffic to clean it up!
Haydn Jones - Lead O/S - 16/Mar/14

High-balled. Bit wet and sandy at the top, which added a little excitement.

Had done the boulder problem before so it was a onsight after the peg.

John Roberts (JR) - Lead O/S - 05/Jun/12 with Alex Messenger

gregoritos - Lead rpt - 30/Mar/12

Just an extended boulder problem. I'm short so it was tough to get into the break, harder than the 'crux' lower down.

timmyhobby - Lead dog - 20/Feb/12

love it but couldnt get my balence off the sidepull to reatch the next break, next time! definatly worth a go.
timmyhobby - Lead dnf - 18/Feb/12

Shunted years ago.
kingholmesy - Lead rpt - 2012 with Hills

Took a couple of falls/rest trying to get past the peg. Made it eventually, though not the best sequence perhaps. Need to come back and do it clean.

Having worked it with someone else a bit shorter, this is definitely pretty morpho. I'm 6ft1 and can static all the moves, just about. Anyone shorter would have to pop.

Did it above a pad
Tony Little - Lead O/S - 15/Jun/10 with Dan

No way this is E4 or 6b, at least not for those with my body shape (tallish, decent reach). Nice climb though.
PeteH - Solo O/S - 01/May/10 with Chris Fox

Bouldered out the start then 1 slump on peg, need to come back to do clean
mark20 - Lead dog - 01/May/10

think i strayed left towards the top.
JamieSparkes - TR dog - 26/Dec/09 with Nick
