Enjoyable, didn't bother placing gear in the final break as big holds lead to the finish, but looked like it would take plenty. The gear before that was super solid. Just the one cheeky/reachy move to the final break.
jezb1 - Lead O/S - 20/Oct/12

First time on lead. Very well protected, just dont mess about too much placing it ,a small cam at the upper horizontal break was most welcome :-) didn't find the move at the top super hard

One tiny rest just before the overhang; otherwise, clean. Steve led the route, John took out half of the gear.

Ahh. Pumped out and lobbed off after a good amount of tıme denyıng the ınevıtable and clıngıng on for grım death. Really pleased to take a safe clean fall off thıs. Mıght have got ıt ıf had clımbed faster but ıt was experıence ın the bag for next tıme.
mattyork2 - Lead dog - 01/Jul/12 with Pete Ellis

Excellent climb, nice sustained crack climb with a hard finish. Got too pumped to complete and peeled off, tiny nut managed to hold in horizontal crack:-)

Brill route and patient partner, thanks Al Amazing pocket in top roof which I managed to get a not in and it held three lobs.

Chriswallis2 - Lead rpt - 02/May/12 with Jim MEC

Repeat climb. Stripped Mike’s gear after he took a big lob from above the crux. Moves below overlap felt hard and top out was pumpy with little for feet.

Awesome! Had a bit of a slip at the top that would have resulted in me peeling off, but somehow managed to hold on. Adrenaline helped me top out. Great climbing, good gear.
