My sole ascent of the weekend. Led in pissing wet conditions with half an inadequate rack, followed by a gear-retrieval mission... Unnecessarily exciting.quiffhanger - Lead O/S - 13/Oct/13

Tough move into the groove but found good intermittent rests all the way up.

Great line, physical route and a tough crux section.

Lead with some of the gear pre-placed, after Hutch's outstanding fall. Enjoyable climb.

Good climb and good line.

Great route. Strenuous getting over the bulge, then keeps throwing up another hard move just when you think it's all over. Jammed all the way up the crack. Must come back and lead it. It was tough enough getting all the gear out without resting.

Fairly sustained although the crux is definitely the initial bulge. Brilliant route but fairly hard for the grade. Make sure you have perfected your jamming skills before taking this one on.

started on lead, but down climbed before the first crux. Leading head just wasn't on. What's wrong with me at the moment!?!
Stanners - 2nd O/S - 15/Oct/11 with Jack Bradbrook
Very hot day (26 degrees!) and Lion Rock in full sun. Downclimbed from first roof for a rest after putting in gear but still couldn't get through the crux - miffed.
Jon Didymus - Lead dnf - 29/Sep/11 with Rich
Very good, well worth doing. Great gear all the way.

Awesome looking line when viewed from down on the road. Wasn't expecting the lower crack to be as pumpy as it was. Pulled up out of it, couldn't get balanced and promptly fell off.
Straight back down and climbed it ground up.

Great pitch, although dirty and a touch loose to start - this can be avoided to the right of the groove. The crux is brutal, but protected if you are strong enough to stop and put in gear. I just had to plough on to better holds. Onc past the entry to the grrove it relents a bit, getting easier as you get higher.
