ashknot - Lead dnf - 21/Apr/10 with Caroline

Superb route. Went clean first try after some up/down climbing before crux. An ab down a line to the right gave me a quick peek at the line.

Lanked my way through the crux - not very pretty. Slightly disappointing.
gforce - Lead - 17/May/09 with James

A bit reachy, or a bit hard. Not sure which, but needed a couple of goes at the top section.
