[Crispin on More Steam, 3 kb]17m. Great climbing up the thin, technical, orange-streaked wall. The first 8m is the crux, above the wall is steeper but with much better holds. © ROCKFAX

jonleighton - Lead RP - 16/Nov/13

Took a couple of ankle-shattering falls at first bolt before I realised what I was on! Backed off

proper good more people should climb these routes
Luke Dawson - Lead O/S - 27/Apr/13

Brief play on the crux moves then led first go. The rock quality at the top is amazing!
Ed morris - Lead RP - 20/Apr/13 with Colin

once a good crux sequence was found it went easily today.
misterb - Lead RP - 17/Jan/13 with nick

2nd go. Could really do with another bolt or three. Enjoyed the moves. Good idea to extend 2nd bolt, to avoid decking potential.
tommytuffa - Lead RP - 18/Nov/12 with ollie b

2nd go in the dark

Just climbed to the 2nd bolt, might have been weighting the rope a bit on the crux move

Broke my foot on first attempt in August so had to come back and send those demons to sleep, bolts not very sportingly placed so still has the E5 dartmoor guide feel to it! Be warned!
eddieclimb - Lead RP - 01/Dec/09 with Rebecca Edwards

Blew the on sight by missing a foothold! only 1 short hard section followed by no hands rest and a steep wall on good holds
Billg - Lead RP - 28/Jun/09 with James Kauntze

A wonderful surprise to get this. Made up for getting burnt off on Empire by burning off the other lads on a hideous slab move (you don't have to hang around on and lock off the tweaky LH crimp if you get a high R foot and gaston/ lay away a seam.
Paz - Lead RP - 22/Sep/08 with AB, MT, EB

Probably not -too- bad but horrible in the heat.
