Highballed. My favourite of the harder solos here. Avoid going left too soon, as the best moves are up the centre of the upper slab directly to the roof. Unlike most of the technical overgrading at the crag, I thought this move probably was worth 5c. Maybe the start also. Overall, for me this is more 'gritstonesque' than the arete.

Got the under-cling in the higher break with high feet to span to the top section. Cool stuff.

Same finish as route to the left

I can't imagine how I would have done the crux if I was normal height, just had to reach for the high hold and then run my feet up. I wouldn't say there was much difference between a lead and a solo as providing you reach the only gear on the route you are probably a good enough climber to not fall off the final few relatively easy moves to the top.

E3 seems about right, possibly pushing 5c. One or two dinner plate holds on the direct finish are flexing alarmingly.

Nice shame it moves left but I couldn't see any way direct fair at the grade!
Cheese Monkey - Solo RP - 15/May/14
Climbed up, jumped down. Went up again, this time with the cam in place and went all the way so E2 with preplaced gear....

Did all the hard climbing above mats and then didn't dare to head onwards from the cam (+ siderunners on the right). Led to the top after Iggy left with the mats, however having the siderunners pre-clipped. In any case a very nice climb I thought.

Could do the first hard move (dyno) but failed the second one.

broke my ankle here :(
quite good climbing though.
John Procter - TR O/S - 10/May/11
The direct finish up the overhang on surprisingly solid holds is the logical line and gives an exciting mantel to top out, only slightly harder than the rest of the route.
