Flashed the pumpy start and got to just before the first rest but hung around too long fiddling with gear, and slimed off. Got it clean second go (with the first bit of gear in). Avoided placing cams to the left of the wobbly block nearish the top, R of crack. Its gonna come out soon...

stv - Lead - 31/Jul/11 with B, Beans

Made and ill advised and impetuous decision to lead this after climbing at Alien at lunchtime and 3 routes on the Sentinel block in the evening. Ran out of gas and rested before the last move which turned out to be fairly easy in the end. Better than last time mind when I tried to follow Scott and couldn't get off the ground. Brilliant climb though it felt fairly desperate at the time.
Tom Baird - Lead dog - 26/Jul/11 with Colin Partridge

Finally made it with several attempts to get off the ground, and then a good long rest about 2/3rds of the way up. Really good route and one I hope to come back to.
