Took a while. Tough 7b. Look out for the bomber jug about a foot and a half left of the pointy jug slot at the top of the crux. Takes half a grade off.

Chubbard - Lead dnf - 14/Mar/14 with Ollie

Should have done this, binned this after all the hard work was done. Then got beta from Tomar, but too tired.

Failed onsight, 2nd go. Don't understand why the anchor is off to the right, would be better finishing straight up.

Can do the whole route as 2 link-ups. Best redpoint I got my hand on the lip of the letterbox jug on the edge of the upper overhang, but not deep enough to stick it. So very close!

:) - nice to get this. Good route.
Jon_Warner - Lead RP - 22/Jul/13 with Jenni

Hidden - Lead RP - 22/Jul/13

A good 2* line. Could do with an extra bolt on the crux, a new belay and replacement of the horrible cemented-over-thing at the top. Well worth coming back for however.

Couldn't clip last bolt - really big stretch out right for me. Finished on second. Would be so much better if finished at last bolt.

7b here, 7b+ in the guide, who knows - took the same sort of time as both Living Dead and House Burning Down. Still, nice route, good moves!
AJM - Lead RP - 25/Jul/11 with Charles Hubbard

Wendy - Lead RP - 17/Jul/11 with Tom Ball

3rd visit, about 6 or 7 goes overall. Loved it! New guidebook says 7b+, so I am quite happy to bag it as my first 7b+ tick!
Tomar - Lead RP - 26/Jun/11 with Oliver Beesley

Really nice climb - great fun and annoyingly easy to drop unnecessarily at a few points! 7B+ in new guidebook - think more hard 7B myself.

Sustained power/balancy moves with a fuck off jug in the middle.
Alex Mason - Lead β - 24/Jul/10 with Laura Perry, Mikey G

robbed of the onsight, foot slipped off polised foothold when i was up on the big holds at the top. Wicked powerful moves - found a sweet heel to help with the crux!

Hidden - Lead RP - 14/Jul/10

Did it yesterday after a few goes a couple of years ago. Think it may have lost a hold - reason for upgrade? Still soft touch for 7b+ though.

Really liked this route, nice bouldery start to a good rest and then another bouldery sequence. Then a technical traverse to finish. **

2nd go. New guidebook gives it 7b+. I thought it was soft 7b+. Best to just lob off from the top rather than doing the horrible traverse to the next belay or topping out.
