James Jackson - 2014

More like E1 5c maybe if you trust the peg to some extent. Couldn't commit to it on my lead attempt. Where are those threads? Quite a nice climb.

Nearly. Tried 4 or 5 times pumping out and each time moving back down a couple of steps. Can't quite put the move together.

Quite tough at the end of the day so I flashed it as arms were getting tired! Had a bit of beta having watched Paul have first go which helped :-)
wilsers - TR β - 30/Jun/13 with Paul Ashwell

Weird Grade but suitable providing you find the threads. Shame its so short, good fun.
Stanners - 2nd O/S - 31/Aug/11 with 4 x Martins Friends, Martin Stanfield, Jack Bradbrook

Good little route with two bomber threads and a good peg by your hip to protect the single 5c move over the lip of the little cave. A big lunge from a crimpy edge to a jug is the crux.
