I'm 6ft 4 and despite being knackered from climbing two days on the go I still insist that the start just feels ridiculously reachy and somewhat dangerous.Quarryboy - Lead O/S - 24/Jul/14 with Andy G, James Rich, Rob Stanfield

The difficulties on this are bouldery and short lived so not really my style. A fierce start on some less than generous holds, didn't feel like a soft touch.

Lead after looking at from the abseil off Motion Pictures. Long, tough stretch to the first good holds. More gear, second thread and then a big weird move to the ledge. Cool route. Not soft E2 in my opinion.

Bold start. Comparable difficulty to the crux on Moving Pictures, but without gear, so if we're being consistent about grades it should definitely be E2.

Watched Ant and even took his gear selection (plus a few extra pieces) E1 5c if the threads are good. Ant looked very solid so thought it was going to be a little easier with my reach...wasnt! Crux was clipping the first thread.

Shameful performance! Straightforward climbing, but was compelled to grab the thread rather than jug just above, didn't rest just clipped and carried on. Guess I was spooked by the potential landing. Rest went without a hitch although I'm too slow at placing gear, must climb more trad!
