Feels a lot harder than "All Hands to the Pump". or maybe it's just more complicated.
Tom Brierley Gore - Lead dog - 06/May/13 with Shijing Hu

1 rest. More PE required!!
DrGav - Lead dog - 27/May/12 with Wendy

Worked a new way to clip crux clip, before the crux.. and think the RP needs to skip the final clip.
DrGav - TR dog - 13/May/12 with Wendy

Nice intricate climbing. Pretty luck to not to fluff the top.
quiffhanger - Lead β - 06/May/12

7a+ for me
Phil Belcher - Lead RP - 15/Oct/11 with Dad

1st actual redpoint attempt. Fell at 4th clip, not one second after clipping. Made it to anchor ok. Unsure from which hand best to clip the 4th (any bridging possible...?) Good route and prob easier when cooler.
DrGav - Lead dog - 02/Oct/11 with Wendy

Finally figured the crux (after putting the rope up ) with a lot of help from Wendy. Fingery sidepull heaven.
DrGav - TR dog - 01/Oct/11 with Wendy

Great face climbing!

Led by a random frenchman, who happened to have a rope, which we happened to have forgotten to bring. First time I've tried anything this hard... hmm yes, that was hard!

Abbed it before hand to chalk it up to give the other two chance to onsight it. Both needed a redpoint.
