stoneback - Lead RP - 05/Oct/13 with Alan

Placed a few nuts below the crux and then downclimbed to piece together the moves - feet were key in the end. High in the grade, and hard for 5a. Had a hold break on me near the top, but somehow held it together. Don't use anything left of the arete!

Very interesting bouldery start, sequence takes a while to work out

I must have improved since I did this last as I got up it first go. A couple of hard 5a moves low down.
wurzelinzummerset - 2nd - 08/Dec/12 with Ivan

Really nice stiff 5a start sequence. Stepped up, got the gear in, stepped down, rested, then went for it. Bit scruffy above, but worth a star for the first moves.

debbie roberts - 2nd - 23/Oct/12 with Marti999

Dogged the start once then got it the second time, definitely felt more like 5b but no harder than vs. Simple climbing above.

SGD - Lead O/S - 22/Jan/12 with Jonny WMC

Fell twice working on the crux start, but after the second fall i just commited myself and reached the ledge,from then fairly straight forward climbing.
Stanners - 2nd dog - 19/Sep/10

Bloody awkward crux and then forgot about slings so Rob had to chuck some up to me a good way to end a afternoons climbing though!
