Stick clipped first clip. Fried pulled off a chunk on top rope shortly after. Spicy.

Fell trying to clip bolt 3 - I'm too short to reach it. Used clip stick to clip bolt 3, did all moves clean. Nice and not pumpy.
Fiona Reid - Lead dog - 18/Sep/13 with Mike

Really cool climb . Watch out for the loose rock just above the lower off
Richard Fletcher - Lead O/S - 18/Sep/13

julesp - Lead β - 27/Aug/13 with mike

Nice technical moves between good rests, and generously bolted. Mostly clean and should improved with further traffic.
Mark Bull - Lead dog - 23/Aug/13 with Mike

Well bolted arete climbing. Good holds but footwork on small holds required. Buddy pulled off the wobbly spike at the end of the route and its now a good crimp.
