Such a great route. Sustained and at the top of both grades. The Guano section makes for a intesresting move or 2. Gotta go back and lead this myself and a few others on this excellent wall of rock.SGD - 2nd - 07/Sep/14 with phil wilkinson

Pulled on peg. Also got rope stuck and had to improvise; jumared up on crappy prussiks, for 45 metres in the sun. Still, better than popping down the gym eh?

Looong route, I removed one short loop of 10mm rope which someone had added (in case the other 3 bits of 10mm rope at the anchor failed?!) which made the ropes near impossible to pull.

Amazing route. I'd say it's one of the best E1's I've ever done. Slipped initially on the lower crux but led clean ground up. Quality climbing throughout.

Rob lead. Last time I attempted, I missed the junction from John Peel.
Today, after I abseiled from the top, a rope got stuck at the top, so I shunted up this route again to free the ropes...

Jim Slater - 2nd O/S - 25/Jul/10 with Graeme
Almost climbed the wrong route... The line in the rockfax photo topo makes it look like you should start by climbing the blank wall to the left of where the route actually goes which i was avoiding thinking it was the line of John Peel. So I was relived when Jim said that JP started further right and I could go and climb on some holds! instead being about to try to climb a new direct start to Destot's Gap! *should have looked at the hand draw topo which is much clearer.
A long but excellent haul with some truly great moves!

top quality route, huge plethora of moves and types of holds, (finger, hand and fist jams), and the odd technical move thrown in!! start from directly below the big tree and follow the flake line, i think the topo in the guide might be wrong.
