First time in my life I used a clipstick. Would have been handy to have the second draw already in place as well. Tough start, good easy climbing to the top after that.

Looks like a useful foothold has fallen off the start, feels like it's added a grade or so.

Hidden - Lead O/S - 29/Feb/12

much trouble at the start... way harder than 6a+. Like a 6c boulder problem with a 5 on top of it. Total smeg

It took me several goes to get stood up next to the first clip but otherwise no problems. Oh and I pulled off one of the right-facing sidepulls at about 3m height - sorry!
fragglerock - Lead RP - 30/Jun/11 with Tom Prince

The whole difficulty of the route is compressed into the first two moves which are desperate!
Quarryboy - Lead O/S - 26/Jun/11 with Rob Stanfield, Mark Davies

start much harder than 6a+, but the rest easier.

Definitely a good idea to clip the first bolt before starting. A few frustrated slips before I got this one.

paultaylor - Lead - 08/May/11

as expected, hard to start as most of the climbs on this section, very easy after. first move def more like 6b (if not more) but overall I guess 6a+ is fair considering the upper section's ease. clip stick is a good idea to protect the start

should be a boulder problem

Couldn't hold the grip for the first move. No fookin way was that 6a+. Technicality alone is 6b+. Rest of it is easy 6a. Needs regrading before someone gets hurt.
ruaidh - 2nd dog - 27/Mar/11 with Tim, Paul

At least 15 attempts for the first move. Went with a super high foot and a sketchy clip. Rest of the climb straightforward but felt the start was hard F6b.

Looked at the start for bloomin ages and decided I wasn't up for the lead. Nick went for it instead .. I seconded. Very glad that I backed off cos it was nuts for a 6a+. Rest of route easy 6a. So .. not a very consistent route.

The start took a few goes. It is solid UK tech 6a, but the rest of the route is easy, no harder than 5+. 6a+ is a meaningless grade really.

I fell off the start around 10 times until I realised there was a better hold for my right hand and then flashed it. After you're past the first clip, its easy, but nice, climbing.
