Went direct at the end and glad I did, felt like I was at LPT on the top wall and you dont have to stop to place gear. Some tricky moves on the lower section.

Pumped! Was almost off so many times but pulled through on a few finger locks and lay down in the break! Awesome route, deserves the stars
anguskille - Lead O/S - 08/Aug/15 with James Kay, Mike Grant
Awesome. Tough move to get established in the crack then just yarding up on bomber fingerlocks to the break. Cool heel-toe-leg bar possible. Went for the original finish because I didn't fancy the run-out. It isn't actually as contrived as it looks in the topo and has some good climbing.

Goosed from the off!

very greasy today
brices - Lead RP - 16/May/15 with Edd, Llinos
Nails. Pumped out on the lower crack then second go had to dig _very_ deep on the upper section. Went direct as didn't realise there was an alternative. Great but easily 6b and not overly geared. Ended up crimping crozzles well above some pretty mediocre gear. Spicy!

Utterly nails! The top wall is so hard.

Misha - 2nd dog - 21/Apr/14 with Tim Newton
1 rest at the crux, didn't have the fitness after taking way too long to put the gear in for the crux move. Did the rest clean with the left hand finish which actually climbs well and makes sense despite looking like a bit of an escape in the guide. One to come back to and hopefully do clean with the direct finish.
tim newton - Lead dog - 21/Apr/14 with misha nepogodiev
Bugger. A bit greasy and a bit weak. Powerful and short-lived. Will return!
Tom Livingstone - Lead dnf - 21/Apr/14 with Phil Dowthwaite
Glad to settle an old score. Some lateral thinking required on crux. Class.

Got pretty pumped when the flake wasn't the rest I was expecting. Just had enough in the tank for the next hard move. Thankfully the moves get steadily easier.

Failed again, many years after initially trying it. Boxed after previous few days. Having previously aided my way up it decided to lower off

barni - Lead - 01/Apr/13 with Oates
Nails, got mega cold on the belay so pulled on some wires through the crux. pretty steady after the crux moves.
Duncan Campbell - 2nd dog - 31/Mar/13 with Robbie
Barni had placed the wires protecting the crux, no doubt i could have placed them though. good route and the direct finish is great and technical!

Onsighted the direct finish. Had led the LH finish previously, with a fall lower down. The direct is much more satisfying.

Ground-up. Fell off reaching the crack proper, A hard move, then steadier but powerful moves to an easy left hand finish (direct was wet.) Not top 50 imo.
