Rockfax Description
15m. A powerful start, tenuous middle section and difficult finish up the wide crack gives this route bags of character, lower-off above the upper bulge. © ROCKFAX

Scraped in on the last burn of the day, lovely stuff!
Nick Sherring - Lead RP - 01/Aug/15 with Anthony, MartinPL

Lead into the top crack and last key move, oh woe is me! Pretty much sorted for fresh arms next time. Totally sapping on the arms but great climb, not too fingery for change.
Nick Sherring - Lead dog - 25/Jul/15 with Anthony

coming together pretty well, time to lead next time!
Nick Sherring - 2nd dog - 21/Jul/15 with Tim Broughtonshaw

working session, most moves worked out. Footwork for the fingery crux to work out next time. Great varied route, packs lots of variety into a short distance

Got it on 3rd redpoint today, very sustained for what a relatively short route with only 5 bolts.
MikeYouCanClimb - Lead RP - 31/Jul/14 with Matthew

Lead to 4th bolt on Wednesday and ran out of steam, today it seemed no problem as moves were wired.
matt30987 - Lead rpt - 27/Jul/14 with Dad

Top quality route. Sustained power enduro. Dinbren is awesome
Tomar - Lead RP - 20/Apr/14 with "Brosky"

Heart breakingly close on 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th RP (fell going into the crack). Had to really dig deep with sore skin and wasted arms to get this one and it was all the more satisfying for it.

Luke Owens - Lead RP - 09/Aug/13 with Ryan "Spidey" Mcconnell

Massive progress, had 3 redpoints and fell off getting into the top crack one move from victory!
Luke Owens - Lead dog - 06/Aug/13 with Ally Smith, Matt Lamb

Hidden - Lead RP - 01/Aug/13

New beta from Ally got me to a new high point by the 3rd bolt and have a new sequence for the crux. Bridged out left foot! It's on!
Luke Owens - Lead dog - 01/Aug/13 with Ally Smith, Luke Clarke

4th Session, powered out by the third bolt. Finding the moves in isolation easier.

New beta, did some bigger links. It's on!
Luke Owens - Lead dog - 26/Jun/13 with Matt Lamb

Had 2 Red Points tonight. Pumped off both times entering the top crack. Heartbroken
Mattlamb90 - Lead dog - 19/Jun/13 with Luke Owens

2nd session, not so good!
Luke Owens - Lead dog - 19/Jun/13 with Matt Lamb

Worked into 2 half
Mattlamb90 - TR dog - 04/Jun/13 with Luke Owens

Just about managed all the moves, managed a small link from the jug to the chains. Not my style at all, so psyched to stick at it! Felt miles harder than Barrance for me! Great route.

2nd go. Sooo nearly O/S. Dropped it going to the jug at the bottom of the crack with a heinous sequence (6b slap). Found a crimp out right making it 5c.
Alex Mason - Lead RP - 24/Apr/13 with Jon Ratcliffe

Nice climbing, did all of the moves.

Great route. Boulderly start, awkward middle and a bunched finish into the crack.

dannyboy83 - Lead O/S - 31/Oct/09 with Shane

Tried onsight, got up to touching the big flake but couldn't really make the powerful pull up so bolt to bolted it and then worked a few sequences and then led it first red point. Nice to do the route quickly, probably only 7b. Great route.

surprised to get this as was tired; high right foot key at the start. a good climb, not much harder than Walking With Barrence

clips in, that move to get the jug is cool
