Lantern session, must've been about the 20th go of the night, was about to go home. Feels incredible when it all sticks, lives up to the hype and more.

Finally a boulder on grit that caught my imagination. Looking forward to unlocking more of the sequence in the future.
Daniel Heath - Sent dnf - 03/Mar/13

Progress - hit the top side-pull. Trick was to pull really hard with high left toe to get the crimp solid (then drop it back down again for next move).
quiffhanger - Sent dnf - 02/Mar/13

At last, used the pebble out left for move to third sidepull, much easier. So Damn Good!

Finally have beta which will allow me to do the jump. Just a matter of time and attempts now. :D Did West arete and go west and fell off the top of the nose.

Getting there

Climbed the same days as Storm and Brass Monkeys. Took about 5 goes. Top out was spicy as there was a frozen puddle at the top.

Only to the jug! Tried to brush the 6 inches of snow off the top only to reveal an ice puddle and nearly get blown off! Top out next time! :)

One session. Probably my best experience climbing, topping out it felt like a dream. http://vimeo.com/32340253

First session, 25mins & less than a dozen attempts. Once I had the highest side-pull the rest was a path.

At last! Didn't top it out as it was a tad wet and I was by myself and, frankly, worried.

Got fingers over the jug on five or more consecutive goes and then gave up to preserve skin and psyche. Next time!

Back for the third session in three days and pretty sure I could do it. However I still got pumped trying to do the bit above the jug and had to jump off. Had a good rest and dispatched it the next go with no pump in sight, guess my arms just weren't warmed up. A fantastic climb with an exciting finish.
Andrew Barker - Sent x - 03/Mar/10 with Tom Lyons, Cat Black

The makings of a saga. After many sessions since December I finally bagged the jug only to fail on the top part due being pumped!
