Really fun route. Almost enjoyed the runout on the slab as much as the burly overhang.

Seconded this a few months ago on my first visit to Haytor. Pumpy start, great route.

Surprised to get this - looked nails from underneath, but a joy once you get those first jugs and sort the feet.
Motown - 2nd O/S - 08/Jun/13 with Luke

Tried this in 2008 so can't call this a true onsight but cleaned it this time on first attempt. Great moves though the roof.

Pffft. Failed on lead dogged to hell on second.

I flailed on this for far too many hours... In the end a couple of weeks off climbing had taken their toll.

First route of the day after Chris's epic on Levitation direct.Couldn't get to the top jug on my first attempt. Sent it clean afterwards.
francois - Lead RP - 14/Jun/11 with Chris

Almost lead this clean, but fell after grabbing the wrong jug once getting around the overhang. Francois managed to lead it (worked), then I seconded. Fun, burly first move which is well protected.

jonnie3430 - 2nd - 25/May/11 with Ross

wild move through the roof, but felt more like 5b
msoldn - 2nd O/S - 16/May/11 with Sam

Felt a lot easier on the second attempt.
mark schramm - Lead rpt - 25/Apr/11 with ben sdmc

clean, but with protection already established under the o'hang
thomb - Lead - 06/Apr/11 with David Coley

Got tired placing gear, got over the steep moves but couldn't figure out the move above.

Steerpike - 2nd rpt - 11/Jun/09

JPGR - Lead O/S - Jun/09 with Yvette

Tried at the end of the day...maybe not a good idea. Fell off on overhang. Struggled to get lanky legs above roof...very powerful. I will be back. Excellent gear though.
Mr Tickle - Lead dnf - 06/Dec/08 with davenev

Lovely knee jam - just couldn't reach and wasn't strong enough. Great fun though - we'll be back
