Climbed up and down a few times before i felt like going for it. Used mats but still felt like a solo

Toprope solo, thinking about soloing it but the top feels quite insecure...

Bouldered it out above pads. Climb is easy but it feels high for the crux at the top.

Very nice, two pads.

finally found a sequence that works, i dont think i would do it without a mat, does`nt seem 5b to me!
phleppy - Sent x - 19/Aug/10

Pretty spicey and lovely aretey moves... No mat as i'm silly... would be a brilliant highball.. Eyed up the other aretes around here they look great.

Bouldered over a stack of pads. Had my hands on the top several times before I could commit. Well and truly burnt off by the young guns of YUMC. Probably only HVS over good pads but would be a very scary lead.
petellis - Sent x - 31/Jan/10 with Jonothan Richard, mattyork2

Climbed ground once stopped messing about with gear. Great team ascent! Fantastic to see all the YUMC young guns out- not only pscyhed for the trd but crushing all over the shop and burnning us off very humbling - but exciting! ( :

Frustrating - probably not that hard but the landing is bad

Hidden - 15/Mar/09

Didn't know whether to log this or not. Liam just asked if I could do a pull up on the bottom pocket. I ended up bouldering the first 4 or so moves before deciding I was getting a bit high. Climbed back down to the floor. Can see myself soloing this next time if I have a bit more confidence as long as the top doesn't look too bad!

Bouldered out ground up featuring some worrying jumps from top foothold. Eventually soloed without mats for E1 headpoint tick after plucking up courage for the worrying final mantle. WELL worth E1, onsight without mats
