Leleanor93 - 2nd dog - 25/Jul/14 with Benedict Powrie

Didn't take enough gear, did the crux above a bad tri-cam, Definitely didn't feel HVS in the circumstances.
BenedictIEP - Lead rpt - 25/Jul/14 with Eleanor Jones

2 hard moves on crap smears,but not very bold. VS 5a?

Louise Hall - 2nd dog - 15/Aug/12 with Nathaniel Gjoderum-Symons

BenedictIEP - 2nd β - 21/Jul/12 with Haydn Martin

Substantially easier than Extraction (HVS) at the same crag. One move wonder, but the crash into the ledge if you fluff it would be unpleasant.
Hardonicus - Lead O/S - 21/Jul/12 with Ben Powrie

Moves felt very easy... Had already led it earlier in the day. Very nice though.

Franco wanted to lead it, but it was my turn to lead. It looked abit crap, so decided to 'jazz' it up a bit.
Dave Warburton - AltLd O/S - 21/Sep/08 with Franco Cookson

Franco Cookson OLD - Lead O/S - 21/Sep/08 with David Warburton

Shaky mid summer neckie grit ascent. Took ages to commit to one crux move which screams "this is going to be soooo easy" at you but for some reason you think otherwise. Mmmmm must remember that this winter!!
