Finally worked out the sequence for the bottom, but by then, my fingers were shot. One for the lead another time in the not too distant future!

Soloed up to the arch, found the top rather slopey so finished with the aid of Andy's arm!
theotherpetehill - Lead dnf - 05/Jul/11 with Andy Harper

Struggled to get the start, fine once I found the right sequence. Also made a right mess of the top out but managed to squirm my way to glory.

Been on this a few times before but never figured out how to gain the shelf.
jkarran - Lead - 30/May/10 with Pete

Annoyed I slumped ont the gear first time but it was fine second go. One move wonder at the top and very safe route when you have a couple of pads to save the ankles. Bomber rock 5 under the roof.
