Start is scary and definitely dangerous with the boulder where it is - not the warm up I was expecting! Means you need to faff around placing gear, which is very fiddly. Got a good piece and then immediately tested it as my foot slipped, which actually bothered me quite a lot...great climbing though, but difficult gear placement.

A boulder has moved under the start, making it easier as you can step off for a rest before the tricky moves to get established on the wall.

The huge boulder has moved in the winter storms and now rests against the cliff base, a real shame as you can either totally miss the start by walking up the boulder, or do the start and then just step on to the boulder, or ignore the boulder which we did, but it makes it an eliminate. Also if you fluff the polished moves after the start (around and above the wires) you'll probably hit the boulder, so the route is now more dangerous. There was in fact an accident the day we did it where a leader fell and hit the boulder. The route improves a lot towards the top (some great moves) but unfortunately not as good as it used to be.
tim newton - 2nd O/S - 21/Apr/14 with misha nepogodiev
Epic fail. Fell from 3 metres up trying to place a wire, getting tired then trying to retreat. Fell backwards and hit my head on the boulder pushed up against the route. Lucky to have escaped more serious injury.
The Grist - Lead dnf - 21/Apr/14
Great climbing and really enjoyed it once I got into it - wasn't expecting the end moves! Was nervous having seen the injury from someone who had come off earlier that day, which didn't help at the start! Think the presence of the boulder detracts from the climb a little but just ignored it - despite it being off putting and more than a little tempting to use!

Ground-up. Stupidly fell at the overlap before the break as I reached too high into greasy undercut and couldn't hold it. Lowered off, pulled ropes and went to the top. Went too direct at the top and nearly fluffed it again - too much alcohol swimming round my body? Block has moved at the bottom making the start redundant - though had climbed that bit in '10 before backing off.

Gear seemed fine to me, though it took a while to fiddle in. Might feel sketchy without the right piece. The meat of it was over quickly, but from midway it was easy enough that I got to hang about and watch Andy on Yellow Pearls, and even take a few snaps!

Abject gibbering failure, what was left of my lead ability this weekend evaporated on contact with the pool of damp salt deposit in the initial break to be replaced by fear and pump on discovering the true nature of the 'obvious' wire pockets above. Gutted.
