ruairidhwad - Lead dog - Jun/13 with Calum Wadsworth

Topped out more to the right rather then the centre of the slab as thought that was the correct line. Not sure how much of a difference it made. Good gear after the start & loads of great holds till the long reach at the top...
charley - Lead O/S - 26/May/13 with Ange, Kev

Excellent lead by Charley...I proper dogged the first part...pumpy as hell, little for your right foot and unprotected on lead!

Really struggled with the long reach at the top. Managed to sidepull on a pocket to make the move. Thought of dynoing but in hindsight, it looks like a jug at the top edge but it isn't.
