Very, very dogged. Took unpleasant lead fall nearly decking on ledge, then eventually made final move having clipped anchors by cheating...

No matter how I tried I couldn't finish this. Eventually clip sticked the lower off and was glad I hadn't committed to the irreversible move going out right (for my height anyway). Still couldn't make any impression on a top rope afterwards. Hmm - has something fallen off..

Interesting route - didn't seem loose at all but the top was insane, very difficult if you go up the groove.

hard move at the top

Hell of a big top move, took three falls. Route seems to be clean now.
johnl - Lead dog - 11/Nov/12 with Sarah Perrett, Adam Perrett

Very, very VERY loose. Between the second and third bolt I pulled off a big block and fell. I tested a few other flakes and they just crumbled away. Might clean up with some traffic, but for the meanwhile I'd stay well away. Here's the video.
