plain kitten - 2015
Hidden - 2nd - Nov/14
Lovely climbing lower down, very scary at the top since I was pumped. Didn't fall though, so chuffed with this! Nice and sustained the whole way up.
Hugh Simons - Lead rpt - 19/Sep/14 with Richard Abel
High in the grade.
Sustained climbing made it feel harder than 5b.
Stevie989 - Lead O/S - 04/Sep/14
Good climbing, nice and sustained. Did this and Windjammer with a sprained ankle!
Euan Todd - Lead O/S - 01/Jul/14 with Hugh Simons
Found this very hard, even on 2nd! Will have to improve my strength and come back for the lead some day.

Superb, sustained testpiece E1 - definitely the best route of its grade in the central belt.

Finally, after putting it off for years because I found Windjammer so hard...
JLS - Lead O/S - 08/Aug/13 with Koon M.
Good lead by John. Quite exposed and sustained but excellent climb.
Koon - 2nd O/S - 08/Aug/13 with John Sharples
Had a cam-ripping fall a few years back. Passive pro much better in the smooth Dumby rock.
johannes - Lead RP - 06/Aug/13
Good climbing, decent protection throughout. Lots of footholds, no desperate moves. *** E1 5b

was going to lead it after rob but 2 hours and a 3m fall from rob in the pissing rain led to a compulsory second in the dark. epic night!

Unsettlingly smooth rock. Removed some looseness. Surprisingly reachy but very good.

Bottom end of the corner crack seeping and mossy, but fine higher up.

great great route
pete87abs - Lead O/S - 15/May/10 with lukas
got pumped on the last move so decided to rest on 'bomber' overhead gear, it ripped..... so did 3 other bits, fell quite along way. bit more exciting than intended!!!
Ginger McGrath - Lead dnf - 15/May/10 with euan strachan
Glad to get a proper clean ascent after having to stop once last time due to a very wet top section! Great route.
John 'B' Hutchinson - Lead rpt - 29/Apr/10 with Donald Somerville
Jumped on this without checking the grade, thought it was a bit stiff for HVS. Good route, well protected with good rests. Graham went for the repeat of this a few days later, and ripped 4 bits of gear when trying to rest! A good 8-10m fall!
Euan Strachan - Lead O/S - 28/Apr/10 with Steve M
Major_Steve - 2nd dog - 28/Apr/10 with Euan Strachan
Pretty much an onsight. Was halted once when moving out right at the top section due to very wet rock. Was hoping the drizzle would ease off...not fun having to grab wet clumps of grass with your feet on slimy footholds. Will get back on this and do it proper clean in better conditions!
John 'B' Hutchinson - Lead dog - 23/Apr/10 with Donald Somerville
Surely the best E1 in the central belt, sustained, well protected and steep
