Not the route we'd intended but more amazing rock nonetheless.

Onsight to within a few feet of top... a little unfair for e4 imho.

Hidden - Lead O/S - 18/Sep/13

Running out of time and tired arms meant I abbed the line quickly and stuck most of the gear in. Regretted the decision immediately as it just felt wrong on a trad route! Still, incredible route and what a finish!
Tom Livingstone - Lead β - 08/Aug/13 with Dan Lane

Somewhat desperate, i'd not want to do the last move on lead, that's for sure!
