Calum Wadsworth - Lead rpt - 14/Aug/13 with Emma Jackson

Great move onto the bulge! I opted for the direct finish, utterly terrifying with nothing for the feet and the potential for quite a big fall. A very brimham top out. Character building stuff.
Pike - Lead O/S - 04/Aug/13 with Matt Wilkinson

Great route, and ballsy lead from Mike committing to the topout a long way above gear. Great move onto the bulge on the traverse, and really entertaining topout.

Tried to lead it, got to the crux and got a bit too pumped by lingering on it. Then seconded with quite a lot of difficulty.
tom.dodo - 2nd dog - 14/Apr/13 with John

One tricky move onto traverse. Good gear. Bad rope drag with single rope.

Fun but feels very bold at the top, is the normal escape maybe up the right side of the top rib or am I just getting soft...

the first part of the climb the traverse is excelent great for first time climber but the small overhang move onto polished stone hard and slippy takes alot of bottle.

In walking boots, very nice, a really tricky move moving past the overlap on poor jams and a hight rockover.

Led after partner decided against leading it - too knackered after lots of climbs. A few runners had already been placed (up to the rock-over move). Arete at the end was unprotectable.
