Excellent value for HVS, more of a head game than physically demanding. Laced it with hexes.

Very scared on this route, the polished rock sapped quite a lot of my confidence. Glad I pushed through though! Lots of good gear.

rustaldo - 2nd O/S - 16/Jul/13 with Rachel

Took aaages! Felt really scary, maybe due to lack of any big gear?
Rachel Slater - Lead O/S - 16/Jul/13 with Matt

Miles harder than Stonefall Crack! Dragon #6 was really useful near the start.
gurumed - Lead O/S - 13/Jul/11 with Colin

First trad at dumby, surprisingly good!
Henners - Lead O/S - 18/Jun/11 with Sam Walker

First Trad after 2 months off to get some fitness back. As good a route as I remember.

Proper challenge on a cold day!
allyrocke - Lead O/S - 24/Oct/10 with Robbie

had a break before getting over the block near the top, should be sble to do it with no rests
JonnyPetrie - Lead dog - 02/Sep/10 with Ciaran

I really got the fear just seconding this, it's really scary, especially as the big block higher up doesn't sound very solid although I'm sure it is! I sat on the rope a few times in an attempt to convince myself that there was no need to panic, I couldn't go anywhere but didn't really help.
Elsier - 2nd - 24/Aug/10 with Ian

Dan got my new BD #6 in. Not easy.
Ian Jones - 2nd O/S - 29/Jul/10 with Tom Adams, Dan Moore

again, every move seemed to require calculation!

Euan Strachan - Lead O/S - 15/May/10 with Graham McG

Really nice sustained climb, a proper old school trad route! Take plenty of large gear, had to run out the first section quite a bit!
John 'B' Hutchinson - Lead O/S - 15/Apr/10 with Donald Somerville

Brilliant route, really sustained. It will swallow all the big gear you have, worth taking as many hexes as you can! Having led a few E1s since I think this is probably worth E1 too.

Felt quite hard for the grade. Perhaps intimidation rather than pure difficulty, but still...
PeteH - Lead O/S - 2008 with Lawrie Brand

jamestheyip - Lead O/S - 2008 with Luke

Not a climb to try when still a bit wet. In the guide book it says large friends would be useful for lower section, they would be really really useful...
