You Got Me Into This! >>
[Andy Reeve, 2 kb]Sustained and well protected climbing and, like all good cruxes, itís at the top! Start at the same point as Raw Recruits. Climb to the right-hand side of a roof and break rightwards up the crack which is followed with increasing difficulty to a big flat hold. The next bit is best climbed as quickly as possible without thinking too much about your gear. Finish up a short groove above. © ROCKFAX

Nice wall climbing.
dav - Lead O/S - 31/Aug/12 with Gill B

Stunning route, suits my strengths perfectly but I'm still really pleased to have the onsight. My second E5, nearly dropped the move up to the ledge but dug deep!
Joughton - Lead O/S - 08/Aug/12

Hidden - 2nd - Aug/12

Fell just below ledge
theotherpetehill - 2nd dog - 14/Jul/12 with Ross McKerchar

Hidden - Lead dnf - 14/Jul/12

Brilliant. Pretty pumped by the time I hit the crux sequence. Good gear so had the confidence to climb it quickly and dynamically despite the run-out.
quiffhanger - Lead O/S - 14/Jul/12

Great onsight. Almost blew it by placing too much gear. But went for it despite my uncurling fingers and just managed to dyno for the massive hold at the ledge.

1 fall from rest before crux. 1 hour to there. Totally tanked! Amzing climb!

sam820 - 2nd - 08/Apr/12 with Murdoch

A vicious cycle of grease, fear overgrip and far too much gear. Massively dogged.

First E5, Quality.
colesy - Lead O/S - 14/May/11 with al99

Took the lob from the crux on second attempt ground up, what a fall! Then too pumped for another full go so just got back on and climbed to the top.

Fran S8 - 2nd - 28/Aug/10

Superb climbing, a perfect route. Hard to read at the top, but i didnt know weather to go up, right or left (assumed it would be obvious).
Alex Mason - Lead O/S - 18/Aug/10 with Laura Perry, Mikey G

Belayed Alex on it then did it after him - ended up using a completely different sequence anyway (different morphology). Crux felt ok with a bit of technique, rest of it felt pumpy! Top groove felt awkward!
Mike Goldthorp - Lead β - 18/Aug/10 with alex mason

Fell off the crux
theotherpetehill - 2nd dog - 01/May/10

dropped all my wires except one halfway up... nightmare!
