Cheese Monkey - 2nd rpt - 17/Jul/15 with Alex W

Brilliant pitch. Sustained and intricate climbing, with a tricky step right at the top. Couldn't see how to get over to the Depravity belay (I'd gone too high) and ended up belaying in a corner on the right. Then pitched it back over when Ben had explained where to go. Wouldn't be Main Wall without some sort of faff I suppose.

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.

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.
