Richard Goodey - Jul/15

Maybe too far right on the first pitch as felt 6a with little features. The steep penultimate pitch up the flakes and through the small overhang was pretty special.

good route, easier but more consistant and less contrived than Roland. Thrilling crux right at the top
zach.stone - AltLd - 03/Aug/11 with Robert King

Did the whole thing this time. Trickly slab pitches to start, then more slabs a bit easier for a while. Ran up the middle 4a/b slab pitches in no time. Which was just as well because a storm was coming! Penultimate pitch was cool. Used aid because of said storm :-(

weather turned bad at top of P1, and started to late
zach.stone - AltLd dnf - 01/Aug/11 with Robert King

Started late. Took quite a while leading the delicate first pitch. By time had finished clouds looked very menacing so decided to back off.
