Finally led this. Fantastic route with solid gear where you need it. Very deserving of the grade and the stars. The bolt remains good, not that I tested it, but I did inspect on the way past.

Harry Thorpe - 2nd O/S - 27/Mar/10 with Laurence Everitt

found the bottom crack ok, but got well pumped on the top section.
roberto18 - Lead - 10/Mar/10 with Conor Cussell

Hidden - 2nd dnf - 08/Mar/10

Chuffed to get this clean as it was my first attempt at an E2 onsight - although I used the 'chicken-clip' on the upper wall, which probably knocks it down to E1. Brilliant, varied climbing from start to finish. The crux move is much softened for those with skinny fingers.
lrandall - Lead O/S - 20/Feb/10 with Andy B

Best route of the day, brilliant. Peg not needed though. Tricky sequence before the break which could catch you out. E1+?

Well it's all there as they say. Pretty taxing mentally however. Includes dodgy 'chicken clip' on a bolt if you can reach it!!

1st proper i.e not a chop route E2.. felt fine after the crack which is a one move wonder.. greasy conditions but top went well.. clipped peg, felt right to do that when i was next to it, after i did the move i didn't feel i needed it but that's life i guess! Had plenty of beta from ali. very pleased :o)
