Should have flashed it. The 'left again' beta call confused me when I'd laid one on and gone for the furthest hold I could see. Go again with the left 'above you' ;)

Balls. A fall on each hard section when I put the clips in, then a good RP attempt where I fell on the last move. Then two poor RP attempts where I messed up leaving the ledge! Great climbing though!

shark - Lead RP - 21/Aug/11 with Mark Hundleby

Lead once, putting clips up - top stumped me! Fairly run-out. Rest of climb is really thuggish climbing - very good. Went back to do, but traffic!Hard 7b for me, but pretty overhanging - intimidating route!

Great route, thank god for the hands off rest in the middle or it would get 7c...
eddieclimb - Lead RP - 30/Mar/09 with Rebecca Edwards

not really my kinda route, big moves, steep and powerful, and kept falling off the 3rd last move! Still amazing though.
mhairi thorburn - Lead RP - 22/Nov/08 with malc

Brilliant! So steep on mad blobs. Fell on crux first attempt, no warm-ups here!
