A great series of exciting rockovers. Took me a while to psyche up for the opening moves to the big ledge. Felt thin and greasy. Glad I did though as the rest if the route was well worth it.

Seconded once a year before. Did the direct start this time, which felt soft 6a, but very committing. Lovely route and well protected with cams.

Might feel much easier if you're tall, found the crux moves much harder than those on Kitten Claws! Well protected though and not sustained so still E2.

Lovely but soft. RPs recommended.
Dave Foster - Lead O/S - 16/Aug/10 with Andy

Epic encounter. Got soaked by a wave gearing up from a swellingly close tide then two waves drenched me wife whilst I was contemplating the two cruxes. Then it started to rain whilst facing the top run-out moves. Some stiff & technical moves!

Got to the last moves, gear below my feat unable to see the next holds. Thought as the rest was easy this must be the E2 bit so bottled it. Tim finished it off, followed him up and saw a big hold I missed and the move was easy! D'oh.

Couldn't do the direct 6b start. Bit of a boulder problem. And couldn't get the crux reach to the mono. Had quite a few goes at it before I got it. Next time, flash it!
