Clean this time, very good route.
Calum Wadsworth - Lead rpt - 25/Mar/15 with Tom A

On Cal's gear since he'd just done it (not that it's hard to place). Only E2 5c if we're being honest, so an obvious first E3 if you're looking for a really easy one!
Teappleby - Lead β - 25/Mar/15 with Calum Wadsworth

Really good!! E2 6A
Wizzy - Lead O/S - 07/Sep/14

Probably only E2 5c but really good and bomber gear.
Mike Todd - Lead O/S - 26/Aug/14 with Harrogate MC

Fell off a few times trying to work out the sequence. Felt daft to ground up because doing the easy start but for every try on the top would have been very time consuming! Will come back give it a quick clean and should hopefully do it clean now I have the beta... Bit of a poor effort really.
Calum Wadsworth - Lead dog - 26/Aug/14 with Martin Smith, Jim H

robman - Lead O/S - 18/Aug/14

papashango - 2nd β - 07/Aug/14 with Paul Tanton

Good moves from the top of the crack.
PaulTanton - Lead rpt - 07/Aug/14 with Connor Shepherd

Worked various parts in various ways. Bottom moves impossible due to condition of rock. Top moves are hard!
MartinJWood - TR dnf - 11/Jun/14 with Katy Banner

First E3 on a rope
oread - Lead O/S - 30/May/14

wet and messy!
Jonathan Richardson - Lead dnf - 30/May/14 with Jamie

Ewan Russell - Lead O/S - 30/Oct/13 with Halla

petegunn - Lead - 06/Oct/13 with Matt Reeve, Davina

Hidden - 2nd dog - 06/Oct/13

A very good move. Really hard to figure out the best sequence. Matching on the sloper definitely felt like 6a. Ace
James Oswald - Lead O/S - 22/Sep/13 with Chris Mullaney, Kyle Wood

Prob E2 5c (altho took a bit of working out!) but a good little problem, should see more traffic.
PeteH - Lead O/S - 20/Sep/13 with Naomi Hart

Ed carrigan - Sep/13

Did this on a second the weak before so went back and did it on lead. Foot popped so lowered and did it clean. Felt sandy on the day but that might be in the mind when on lead.

Hidden - 2nd O/S - 13/Aug/13

Great moves at and above top crack. Just a shame they are so short-lived and that bottom half of route is a non-entity.
climberchristy - Lead O/S - 25/Jun/13 with Ben Cole

First E3, seconded first although no falls. With M.C Tague.

First E3, took a few falls. hi theo
robertmctague - Lead - 2013

good route, wet exciting top
Sam Marks - Lead O/S - 20/Oct/12 with Matthew Ferrier

Fell off right at the top when everything I tried to hold was damp. Second go I managed to get in a position where I could have easily taken both hands off which made it much easier to tug on the undergrowth.
