An ok climb - don't think appreciated as much as might due to skinning fingers and bleeding up the whole route.

psychicbread - Lead O/S - 15/May/10 with Max

Was struggling at the crux, wondering how the very hard move protected only by a microwire was consistent with VS 4b, when I was informed from below that I had gone too far right and was on the top section of The Scutters (E2 5b). Oops! Was fine when I got back on route.

Sophie Nunn - 2nd - 20/Sep/09

I seemed to make very heavy weather of this at the grade, but my second did agree that it was balancy at the crux.
