The chipped hold is a foothold! Gear is number 1 walnut, 00friend and 1friend, plus the thread. Awesome route, lovely moves, and the gears good enough.

Tough route generally.
A hard start (hard 5c) leads to a cool reach with reasonable gear. The thread is very small but I couldn't see the hairline crack described in the guide.
I was too scared by the sloperiness to attempt the top elegantly. Scary!

Very sweaty today! Great route, thread is solid, don't believe the hype!
Graham Booth - Lead O/S - 27/Jul/13 with Peri
followed this twice today, the first time with graham the second with dave. tried bouldering out the bottom moves up to the point of standing in the pocket a few times before daves lead. maybe try up to the ledge the next time there with a few mats!

Was expecting it to be much more sustained than it is and found the chipped hold pretty easily. Still the moves are great and once past the start feel pretty slabby.
Matthew Ferrier - Lead O/S - 20/Oct/12 with Sam Marks
Excellent, a long reach to the top from the thread. Chipped hold must be a red herring as i couldn't find it either. Quality mantel to finish. : )

Ram MkiV - Lead O/S - 30/Sep/10 with dad
Top roped it clean twice first, some very nice moves on it, found the chipped hold, it makes the top out an easy mantleshelf, at least that's what I thought!
MikeLeeds - Lead RP - 19/Sep/10 with Clive Greenwood
clive-greenwood - TR O/S - 18/Sep/10 with Mike Nuttall
The chip is very easy to find naturally at the top if you go in the correct direction. Although unlike mike, i found using it to top out very awkward first time, still indispensible though, would not fancy palming over on a mantleshelf!

Loads of really good climbing, spoiled only slightly by the ledge. No idea where the chipped hold is if it's supposed to be on top, there's a few candidates on-route though.
jkarran - Lead - 11/Sep/10 with Pete
Lead on Pete's gear after he lead it, just a convenience thing as we both wanted to lead it. Brilliant little route, didn't see any sign of a chip at the top though so I guess I did the 5c way?!

Best route I've done at Brimham. Top out was interesting. Didn't realise that was where the chipped hold was so involved a desperate pebble pulling beached whale horror show. Great climbing start to finish.
