Strenuous. My partner commented on my occasionally impressions of female American tennis players as it pulled up through the crux.,
Legs - Lead O/S - 11/Jun/15 with Steve

Had a blast seconding this, but the lead looked pretty taxing. The move off the 2nd ledge requires some thinking
Steve Bartle - 2nd - 03/Jun/15 with Kevin V-C

Oak tree at the top is not looking too healthy; suggest taking some tat and using a tree further back to abb off

Felt more like HVS 5a, felt pretty serious in places

lovely climb after work, although does seem to be quite loose nearer the top.

Gibbo - Lead - 06/Apr/15 with Tom Sutherland

Great fun as second, I think I would have found the lead a bit desperate. Two sections of laybacks off flakes with no chance to place gear. At least I didn't have to stop and take any out!
Hooo - 2nd - 21/Mar/15 with Chris Sieradzki

First lead since last summer. Felt very stiff. Beginning of season and recently dislocated finger didn't help

Martin Bagshaw - Lead O/S - 23/Aug/14 with Claire Mathews

Have done this many times. I start up the crack and move into the L crack where the R closes down, then back. To me, this is the natural line.
Ian Stirrups - Lead β - 15/Aug/14 with Sue

lots of 4c and a little 5a as well!

good, but hollow on the finishing moves.

Mayaculpa - 2nd - 05/Oct/13 with Peter

Great climb with lots of gear, lots of full rests and no proper 5a move, so somewhat soft at HVS. Can still get a bit pumpy though if you decide to place yet another piece of gear instead of just going for it too often.
pheotleyr - Lead O/S - 05/Oct/13 with Mike

First half led on Matt's gear after he backed off the lead. Sustained and physical climbing, had to work hard for a clean lead. Previously seconded.
The Ivanator - Lead rpt - 01/Sep/13 with Matt

Started on the lead. Got to the main ledge and bailed off a good cam and a small nut. Found it very strenuous on the second. Definitely some 5a moves in there. Gear seemed largely ok apart from the hollow flake at the top.

Good gear, sustained hard 4c climbing, but not as pumpy as I expected. Excellent
Cheese Monkey - Lead O/S - 12/Jul/13 with Ian M

Really had to push myself to climb this clean. Cracking route.

Marti999 - Lead O/S - 10/Jul/12 with Debbie

Climbed during a very wet spell of weather, in pouring rain after going stir crazy waiting for good weather. Looked from the ground like just the first section was totally soaking. In fact most of the holds higher up were soaking too! Satisfying to complete a route like this in the wet. Good pro.
Chris Sansum - Lead rpt - 16/Jun/12 with Tony Smith

V good route, plenty of gear, more like 5a not 4c, I'd say two of the c.three cruxes are 5a. Quite sustained but agreeable; good rock mostly.
Phil Murray - Lead O/S - 30/May/12 with Liz

Chris Sansum - Lead rpt - 04/Dec/11 with Richard Lade

Gibbo - Lead - 25/Oct/11 with Ollie Keynes

this never let up from the very start, moves kept throwing themselves at you so became very sustained and quite pumpy. bomber kit all the way and gets quite steep. sure there was a 5a move in there somewhere or maybe it was the pump making it feel harder. brilliant none the less
stvredmond - Lead - 01/Sep/11 with Helen Norris

Brilliant climbing but just keeps packing a punch all the way up. Doesnt let up. Glad I was only seconding it.
Helnorris - 2nd - 01/Sep/11 with Steve Redmond

Tough. I had to aid near the top having already rested on the rope. Arms were fully pumped from strenuous first half.

Ybot Htulk - Lead - 10/Jul/11 with Norman and Sonya

Another enjoyable route; a slightly awkward start gives way to typically good climbing and a fairly bold move at around 3/4 height.

SGD - Lead - 13/Mar/11 with Jonny WMC

some hard moves for 4c.
AlexD - Lead O/S - 06/Mar/11 with Ceri

Very good route, feels a bit more like 5a if you follow the flake all the way, its more like 4c if you mantel after the grassy ledge off to the right
Ceridwen - 2nd O/S - 06/Mar/11 with Alex Dennis

Nice and sustained

Hidden - 2nd - 22/Sep/07

This route finishes as per Cardiac does. As we were were short of time we opted for a top rope, lowered each other off and then climbed back up again. A great route - would be a tricky, demanding lead for me. Did swing at one point which put me back on route! Found a size 6 nut.
jamestryfan - TR - 16/Aug/07 with EH and CK

Too knackered - couldn't get on to tiny ledge. Horrible. Chris didn't like it either!
