climbingchica - 2nd - 16/Oct/11
Led this this time, rather than backing off. I found that you can get to the shatterhole directly - rather than going right very tenuously you can reach a good hold up left from the lowest concretions, then smear and move up much more easily to the shatter hole. This must be original grade E1 5a I'm sure - it felt like 5a. It's still runout as hell so E1, and the top was a bit sketchy as the cracks are a bit muddy (and moist on this ascent)

tomshanti - Lead O/S - 10/Jul/11 with Will
The climbing and the gear are both really tenuous, you never really feel safe or secure at any point. You just try to hold your nerve whilst teetering your way up the slab.

Traverse from the corner to Rob's Crack is absolutely filthy making the delicate moves much harder. Needs a good clean!

Good climb, committing traverse. Recommend cleaning it first, there was a layer of fine soil on the foot holds which made it much harder for the leader. Good route!

A must for the Spinal Tap fan looking for perspective, (too much f*cking perspective...). But wow, intense. Moves up to the blast hole at 6 - 7m are unprotected, I managed to get a micro-wire into a tiny crack but didn't trust it. A real trial of your slab technique; get it wrong and you'll get 3m up, only to slide straight back down again; get the body shape right, find the footholds and hey presto, it works. I couldn't quite believe it when I made the blast hole for a much needed rest. The remainder of the route never felt in doubt, the thin traverse worked first time; hello again to Rob's Crack for 5m then the direct finish. This one can never be played. Look, still got the tagger on it...
