Short lived route, glad I'm not the only one who thought that the second part wasn't great or obvious

Couldnt work out where to go on the slabs after the flakes and took a bit of a whipper in the blank grove on a shite rock 1 and rp! Hard start too

benchwarmer - Lead O/S - 14/Jul/11 with Konrad

Led on Alex's gear
owain86 - Lead β - 02/Jul/11 with Alex Mason

Nice climbing on big holds in the middle but afterwards the route loses its way and has an empty feel.
Alex Mason - Lead O/S - 02/Jul/11 with Owain Atkins

Got rather pissed off and frustrated with where I was supposed to be going after the flake line. It was ok up to there, except the E4 start that I accidently found myself trying to do and had to rapidly exit from. Dissapointing route overall, the other one is tons better

Start the tech crux, found no gear until niche. A psychological route.

JulesV - Lead O/S - 22/May/10 with Shauna Cunningham

Hard start for the short (5ft 6) more like 5c above dodge landing, (since doing Capital Punishment with the Ogwen guide, I realise I started up Penal Servitude, Ooops!) then steady 5b to the top but run-out, difficult route finding above jugs. Skyhook helpful,one of the best trad experiances I've ever had!!!
