Very nice!
Cheese Monkey - 2nd O/S - 25/Sep/13 with James S

My first e3 on-sight! Really nice climbing with mostly good gear, steep flake lay-backing was immense! Also led a pitch above it to top out which followed the right trending ramp and then a short steep wall of excellent rock to top out. Looking in the guidebook we think this was probably around the last pitch of Depravity.
James S - Lead O/S - 25/Sep/13 with ben darby

lead on Andy's gear, although I also put in some of my own and clove hitched a sling onto the droopy quarry spike, just to prove I could! Cracking route - deserves more ascents.

Technically a flash - had belayed but not seconded Tom almost exactly a year ago! No useful beta remained though :) Excellent sustained climbing, deserves more attention.

Really enjoyed this
KRB - Lead O/S - 19/Jul/08 with Martin Bridges

Sort of jammed my foot on a smear behind the first spike (but didn't grab it). Start wasn't too bad but was bold enough to ensure I was both gripped and pumped throughout. Doh.
