Hidden - Lead dnf - 28/Sep/14

Got onto it, the first move (for me) hard rock over, not my style spent 20 minutes trying to do it, failed. Left feeling annoyed and frustrated. Heard later the foot hold had chipped a bit, which it did look like but still...
jamesgodwin64 - Lead dnf - 21/Sep/14 with John Cooper

Fell twice trying to get the jump at the end. I can't jump. Did it on toprope after and realized there is a little foothold for the short to bump up on. Silly, was almost onsight.
Tom.Priestley - Lead dog - 21/Sep/14 with Scott Quinn

Tom.Priestley - TR RP - 21/Sep/14 with Scott Quinn

Tom fell so I went up with the cam pre-clipped the hard rock over at the bottom took a lot of working & some belay related assistance! think I figured it out wont know for sure until round two. The rest was fairly simple after the crazy rock over into the cam pocket which is awesome, and the dyno is just good old vdiff fun Like this route think I will pay it a visit every time I get to the roaches

Hidden - 2nd rpt - 14/Sep/14

Gutted to have fluffed the top move first go. But ground up second go was fine. Failure is sometimes good I suppose. Absolutely brilliant fun! Been wanting to do this for ages.

Night-time ascent with a full rack and a head torch. Nerve wracking. Tried to do the last move statically smearing off a nothing dimple, but couldn't. As I was reversing, I peeled backwards, but defied the laws of gravity to save the fall; truly miraculous. Finished with a dyno. I'm a shorty.

tgeh - Lead O/S - 09/Jun/13 with dan geh

Felt more like E2 5c to me. Hardest moves were the starting ones, but were fair 5c once sussed. The rest seemed more 5c/5b. Hardest bit was getting the gear back with the lack of anchors at the top. But still an amazing climb!
Dan Geh - Lead O/S - 09/Jun/13 with Thomas Geh

TR - being belayed from above but the belayer's were not attached to anything as no anchors. sketchy. nice climb, good moves, appeared to be a bit broken off from the initial hand hold.

Ground up. I've been wanting to do this for a long time after hearing about it and seeing it in a video. I got it clean on my second attempt (didn't manage the initial rockover the first time around). At 6'1 i think i fall into the E2(5c) category. Lived up to all my expectations!

More like 5c I think than 6b especially when compared to Artless at Froggatt, which also has a very long reach but is much more balancy.
