Flashed the start, then got pumped trying to work out the move off the sidepull, rested and worked it out, lowered off, pulled the ropes and led clean 10 mins later.

On my first go I took a big lob right off the top of the boulder problem. My foot was in the wrong place and as I hit the ledge I peeled off, landing on Mischa. After a moment to compose myself I dusted myself off and jumped back on. This time I cruised the boulder problem through to the first peg. A moment to chalk up and then on to the crux. Surprisingly, the crux went down fairly easily and before I knew it the route was done. Enjoyable climbing, short and powerful!
Leo Woodhead - Lead β - 29/May/14 with Mischa

Ground up, having done the boulder problem in the past. Felt very easy on the lead!

Blah!
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 G/U - 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.

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

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.

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
