Stupidly blew it at the top. Found the lower section much easier this time though.

dctarrant2000 - TR β - 01/Jul/13 with Marie Guegan, Polly Tarrant

Climbed up to the ledge, got freaked out and climbed down. Had a shake out and went for it. Not really any let up anywhere on it until near the top, serious feeling climb. Could be because I had a harness made from a sling and shoes that were too big :-/ First E4 onsight :-)
Shea - Lead O/S - 26/May/13 with Andy Latham

Would think it can't be far off E5.
Adam Lincoln - 22/May/13

After work blast. Rushing it a bit and fell low down. Tried again but still mega pumped so had a long rest on the ground, then led to top onsighting 2/3 of the route. Annoyed/chuffed at the same time... Where's the Lead Ground-Up option again??
Fultonius - Lead rpt - 05/Sep/12 with James Sutton

Thought this was nippy, especially low down. Lovely move high up to get the break. Abb for gear.

markolst - 2nd dog - 31/Mar/12

Hidden - Lead - 30/Mar/12

Fail! Made it into the crack / groove thing but was irredeemably pumped and fell off trying to move up from there. Backed off from a move higher on the next go. Hard!
Neil Adams - Lead dnf - 2012 with Dougie Harvey, Ross B

Hidden - Lead dnf - 23/Sep/11

2nd go, placing gear. Bring plenty of size 4 nuts. Scary at the top!
stevebarratt - Lead - 25/Apr/11 with Jade Littlewood

Hidden - Lead O/S - 21/Aug/10

Gripping!

robertmichaeladams - TR dog - 22/Jul/10 with Jez

I discovered I'm not quite ready for E4 yet
robertmichaeladams - TR dog - 27/Sep/09 with Tom

nice. curious to see what 6a feels like outside. several goes at lower hard bit, one fall higher up. did all the moves in the end though
tomdude - TR dog - 27/Sep/09 with rob

Gear is fiddly to place. That's probably harder than the moves themselves.
Dr Toph - Lead O/S - 02/Aug/09 with Ally Hill

Ally Baba - Lead RP - 30/Jun/09 with Gav Swinton

Hidden - Lead β - 22/Jun/09

First E4. Had a fair few goes on top rope but got it in one day.

kevg - TR - 19/Jun/09 with Paul, Cam

Elivs was spotted at Limekilns. 1st E4
Lawrie Brand - Lead RP - 19/Jun/09 with Dougie Harvey

First ever trad fall. Decked out on onsight attempt cos cam ripped, ribs took a good bruising, as did my ego. Got back on it but was tired/ a bit psyched out
Mike Goldthorp - Lead dnf - 19/Jun/09 with Jono Hughes

near onsight, but had seen danny try it before
