Pumped out getting into the second section of the crack. Lowered off, pulled the ropes and went for a G/U ... totally pumped out at the ring bolt. Great route though and I think i can do it

That's better, lead placing the gear on lead. Great.

Daaamn... Seriously underestimated this climb! Looked like a walk in the park from below, but got really pumped already after the first bulge. Jumped in. 2nd go to the big hook, but fell on the slopy traverse left. 3rd go clean. Next time: warm up first, and a little more respect for a steep sustained E4!!

First tried it three years ago almost to the day. Seem to recall finding it witheringly pumpy and didn't manage it clean. This time it went fine :-) Still pumpy of course but never desperately so. Guess I'm now fitter and can probably use feet better - that's pretty important. The hardest thing was placing the gear as the moves and hand holds are mostly not too bad. Pleased with this.
Misha - Lead rpt - 09/May/15 with Alastair
Lead this with the gear in after falling by the big ring bolt on the onsight! Need to do it properly putting the gear in on the lead. Brilliant route.

It was a bit dark and I couldn't quite see, as well as the sun being on it, which made it a bit sweaty but the wind was making it really cold, making warming up really hard, but I was too warm. I also picked up the wrong shoes which were too tight and the rubber was too soft coupled with the high additives in my chalk which made my skin too soft for the day. I swear. 2nd go.

Good route, stacks of gear, pumpy to place.
Tried onsight, failed it clean, but made the top in a couple of sections, next go led it on in situ gear clean and smooth. Just got to wait until next time for placing gear on lead.

Some kind of retro-flash. Couldn't remember anything from my failed attempt at following it ages ago. Led today first time but with 2 pieces of Alex's gear in. Pumped silly by the top!
Nick Russell - Lead β - 30/Nov/13 with Alex Winter
Placed some dodgy gear on my first go (I've obviously done too much sport recently). Didn't really have much confidence in it and lost all mojo for upwards progression. Got it next go after Nick had stripped it. Great route. Sustained, but only a couple of 5c moves I reckon.

Fell off at the big ring at the top. Monster ramp-y pump. I have never experienced such an excrutiating burning feeling in my arms before. A bit gutted I have blown the onsight, me and my impatience. At least I am clocking nice air time on trad, good for my head
