Got pumped. Got the fear. Shambles
willackers - Lead O/S - 06/Jun/15 with Rob Napier

went a bit far left at top and somehow climbed left of the first peg so couldnt clip that. Why does the rockfax have the line and the grade wrong in their SW climbs?

A lot more involving than other routes here with lots of fiddly gear, feels harder than pacemaker to me. Great finishing moves
brices - Lead O/S - 10/May/15 with Remus, Llinos

* at Sharpnose = *** most places.
Andy Moles - 2nd - 06/Apr/15 with Ferdia

Pleased with this as second trad route of the year. Made more exciting by incoming tide and taped up finger which kept bleeding all over the holds!

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

Fell off after the long move yesterday so had to go back. : )

Onsight to within a few feet of top... a little unfair for e4 imho.
Justin T - Lead dnf - 06/Oct/13 with Nancy

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!

Awesome but v. hard top tho maybe went wrong way?
quiffhanger - Lead O/S - 10/Jul/11

Tried previously in 8/10 but it rained/I wussed out. Felt so easy this time! Good climbing, decent rests, crux at the top, wicked route.
