Perfect end to summer! Chalked which undoubtedly helps, but felt onsight enough! Should be on everyones list.

Megga - Andy checked out the gear - and it was chalked up - dry, no midges, no excuses! Save something for the top!

What a route! An amazing experience, full on right from the start. The lower half is quite mentally taxing but the top headwall is amazing. A milestone, one which I won't forget for a while. Totally unchalked and I even managed to miss the peg-hole gear... brilliant!

Had abbed in the past and looked at kit to see how dodgy bottom bit is. Glad I did as it made me get on it and it's so good. Bottom third is necky. basically just hooks and a quick sprint up to the first big pocket and kit. Upper wall amazing!

Stunning! Just unbelievable, how can a piece of rock climb so well and have such perfectly adequate gear placements! I thought some of the gear around the early crux might hold a fall, but the climbing is too good to fall off! Had watched Will and George on it the day before so had some idea on gear and where I was going (it was also well chalked) but it takes so much route-reading and foothold finding while your on it that it feels like an onsight regardless.

Didn't feel right. Was getting more pumped than I expected to, so reversed to the ground. Should stay dry for a while though, maybe it will go soon!

Intense. I was properly scared on this, an experience I will remember for a long time, just brilliant.

Blooming fantastic. Climbed in a roasting heat (not complaining), and without a speck of chalk to follow, which added to the sense of adventure considerably.

Karin belayed me when I led Lord in 1998 but she did not second me back then. I was impressed by Karin's lead today as it was very warm. Great to climb Lord again this time in comfort as her second!

Wow! close to tears topping out, just perfect. First E6, first time on an E6. Up to the second pocket is really serious, unless you could arange something in the old peg slot, (and the crux!) After that well protected run-outs and sustained climbing on finger jugs and crimps. Had to traverse into right wall on the girdle ledge to take my new boots off for a while. 7a. PSYCHED!!!!!

Brilliant route. Returned to it and led it clean and in control although found it scary for first 40 feet. This was in contrast to the epic battle I had on it a few years previous to that where I ended up taking falls above the girdle and being top roped up the last bit not having the right bombproof runner for the top.
