Tried some of the moves (glad I did as the crux section was wet) but actually a surprisingly straitforward climb, if challenging to get a placement to stick in. Ended up running the crux out, and getting on with it really. an enjoyable climb

This time i put a lot more gear in. Even though a tiny bit wet the climbing is still as good as ever, and pumpy.

Fantastic climbing. Pumpy but not 'hard' as long as you take care with your feet. One of the best HVS I've done. I have no idea how the route even exists, Every flake is hollowed out behind and feels like it will pull off just with bodyweight. Would not like to fall on this route!

Nice and easy. Bit polished at the bottom so be careful on your steps. Big block loose in the upper section.
Chris Sieradzki - 2nd O/S - 26/May/13 with Hooo

Oh dear. Quite easy, if strenuous, for HVS, but I made a complete hash of it. Got a cam in below the in-situ wire, then promptly slipped and fell onto it while surveying the next move. Having tested it, I clipped the bomber wire, and then knackered myself trying to place completely unnecessary gear mid crux. Ended up with a cam in my hand that I couldn't get into the crack, and couldn't get back onto my harness. Unwilling to drop my shiny new Dragon, I decided to fall off again. After a good rest I easily passed the crux and finished the route.

Loved it, cams defiantly don't fit in the flake as well as one would think but a hex is good protection before the crux. Also it best not to get fixated on laybacking on the flake as i almost did before i saw someone else do the the climb as there are many foot holds to stand on, put gear in and not get so pumped.
zcsharp - Lead β - 22/Sep/12

Good bridging lower down to place bomber gear for each sequence of moves. Each set of moves requires a bit of commitment as hang around to place gear mid move will pump. Crux - final set of undercuts and side pulls to a small slopping ledge above gear Ė donít stop keep going. Awesome Awesome route.

Laybacks all the way up. fairly pumpy start but as I was 2nding didn't have to stop to put gear in so didn't struggle too much. That was my first climb involving any serious lay back climbing so took a couple of moves to trust my feet but once I did it went ok.

Rhys convinced me I could do it .. and by george, he was right. Wop in a nut and cam to start and just get up there. The climbing is not too technical - more pumpy at the start. So it was a case of just doing the moves and keep on going. Really happy that I did it .. just shows how you have to commit to the moves .. theres no might climb it, or might make the move. Just do it and keep going.

What a great route. Would have done it onsight but got pumped placing a crap bit of gear (school boy error!) and had to rest a little.
