Used a hold to the right which I suspect is for Checkpoint Charlie
Senna - Lead dog - 03/Aug/14

Attempted lead - couldn't do the bottom move. After various attempts, cheated and used the jug on Checkpoint Charlie after sean put the rope up, so "on site" for the easier line

Ground up because I kept falling off the nails start! I couldnt get my feet to stick which is very unlike me so I kept trying from the ground until I eventually got past the 1st bolt and climbed to the top. very fingery and the foot holds are showing considerably wear at the start. Absolutely Brilliant route! Felt 6c+ to me, certainly hard 6c.

superb climb! took some time to figure out the sequence of moves just to get to the first clip. apparently i made a lot of noise on this one.

najki_2000 - TR dog - 21/Aug/11 with Chris Rose

Sick climb, very hard start but lovely smooth climbing above and tricky balancey finish on slopers to reach lower off. Will lead next time;-)

Couldn't make the crux move to get established above the first bolt. After three attempts I gave up and tugged on the quickdraw to get going and then did the rest clean. Really nice sustained climbing but with good clipping positions and lovely moves.

this felt hard, cant believe i onsighted it some time ago. anyway, good climbing that keeps coming but if you make it through the start you should be fine (6c+?)
