Pete Rigby - Lead dnf - 20/Apr/13 with Kelli Roberts

Slumped onto second peg first go, sussed out the crux and pulled ropes. Second go. Good climbing of the short and hard variety.
richardr - Lead RP - 29/Jul/12 with Chris Wyatt

Struggled with route finding, pump and climbing. Ended up resting on both pegs. Couldn't work out move above second peg. Gave up and traversed left to VS.

After falling off two years prior. Sharp finger pocket! Misha, I'm not sure quite what you mean about bridging into the vs to the right, it wasn't necessary or even anywhere near. Maybe you meant the vs to the left? I bridged into that and placed a thread and nut to back up the pegs, before traversing right below the first peg to do the crux.

Paul Robertson - Lead dnf - 26/Sep/10 with Guy Percival

Hard, but not that hard once you suss out the moves. First mistake was putting in the fiddly wires without bridging out across the VS to the right, which was rather eliminate and very pumpy. Second mistake was trying several times to traverse left from that point, going for a finger pocket - reversing that was also pumpy. The line must actually go up the arete from the wires until you're stood up in relative balance on the arete with the wires at your feet. Took a while to figure out how best to move left to the first peg (Ben spotted the way). All the way up to the second peg isn't that hard, 5b/c. Couldn't figure out the crux so ended up having a few goes with rests on the peg in between. Annoying as when I got it eventually it wasn't that hard. Getting the left foot a bit higher on a sloping hold seemed to be the key. Would be nice to do this clean another day. Ben did well to get to the first peg, then escaped off left.
