Top roped after seconding Claire up Peapod. Lovely with a most interesting finish. I have led before.

The start always feels committing, whether on lead or on second. Pretty steady climbing once you do.

Super little route in a great position, committing and balance to start.

Whilst still stoned and slightly pissed from the night before, which made for a bloody exciting lead. An awesome situation for such a short route.
lrandall - Lead - 17/Mar/11 with Boulder Jon

Awesome - most committing VS I've ever done. Didn't find the crimpy ledge, so used the pocket instead to stop the barndoor.

immense climb, stacked pea pod (3 bits??) ca, hex nut, then went out right to jug, tried it. tried to come back, foot slipped off, hung around. lowered off started again, bit of dithering, but it went when i knew where to put the feet!

I was told that it was only 4b so I thought it won't be that bad even with a bad knee. I was tricked top end 4c, still very nice little climb with great exposure, go for the solo for the ultimate buzz!

Good solo, wouldn't have done it without Ewan leading first though, i don't think. Nice Fall potential!
Dave Warburton - Solo β - 10/Oct/09 with Ewan

had a nut and a cam in peapod, the nut came out so I jumped off and got caught by the cam. Went back up to peapod placed 2 more cams. Found the crucial crimp and wasn't too bad from there.
