Wasn't able to do the rockover to get over the roof and had to lower off the peg - one to come back to!

Hidden - Lead RP - 14/Sep/13

Super fun! The pair that climbed it before me jumped but I'm 5,4 and I definitely did not that that was necessary! First English 6a.
Rachel Slater - Lead O/S - 08/Sep/13 with Frazer, Olli Crudge

Good fun route but over too quickly. I found it tricky to work out the easiest way and then to actually do it.
sparkass - Lead O/S - 08/Sep/13 with Mike Shorter

Cool! Non of us had to dyno.
Olli-C - 2nd β - 08/Sep/13 with Fraser, Rachel Slater

Dicked around for an age. Couldn't figure it out. Buggered off in shame.

captain - 2013

I've been eyeing this one up since I first started climbing at Dunkeld 10 years ago or so. Had some fear-of-failure nerves before starting the crux and couldn't quite visuakise a sequnce, but it all came good in the end.

Watched G fanny about on this first. Never E4 6a E3. Especially if you jump!
Dangerous Dave - Lead β - 15/May/11 with Dave O

With a touch of fannying about and falling off before I managed it. Should have adopted the flying squirrel approach used by everyone else at the crag that day. At least I managed to climb it in the end unlike Dave who failed on the other crag E4 that is really E3.
gforce - Lead - 15/May/11

3rd ascent of the day. Good fun!
andyinglis - Lead β - 15/May/11 with Graham, Dangerous Dave

E3+ 6a, only one hard move but it's quite tough, managed it static today with a cheeky heel hook....

Hidden - Lead dog - 14/Oct/10

Possibly my first E4 (although I suspect it's actually E3)
Neil Adams - Lead O/S - 08/Aug/10 with Ross B

BrettB - Lead O/S - 27/Jul/10

Messed up the big move, gutted as rest was easy. Poor effort from me!

mhairi thorburn - Lead β - 07/Apr/10 with andrew, Greg Boswell

spectacular climbing.
henwardian - Lead O/S - 2010

Ri - Lead O/S - 2010

Awesome! Very well protected crux so not sure if E4 is justified!
whistler - Lead O/S - 01/Oct/09 with Dangerous Dave

Felt hard today, but had done E5 first (high E point day!!) Emily tried first and no luck so I had to grovel up it again - smoother than last time but still not a path!
Chad123 - AltLd rpt - 29/Aug/09 with Emily

fluffed the first move, blew the onsight. Nailed it second go, enjoyed the upper groove.
Dr Toph - Lead RP - 22/Aug/09

Ally Baba - Lead β - 14/May/09 with M.Hartree,

E4 ?? Stuffed with gear and 2 hard moves!
sheppy - 2nd rpt - 02/May/09 with simon jenkins

Amzing!, feet off catching the lip, quality route!
willackers - Lead O/S - 21/Mar/09 with Ali, Stu Brown, James

Stewart B - 2nd β - 21/Mar/09 with Will Atkinson

groovypiper - Lead β - 23/Feb/09 with Boyce

Awesome fun - found the hard moves fine but then did some ungainly grovelling up the groove to finish. Very well protected so no excuse to go for it!
