Climbed after rob, couldn't do it his way though so resorted to a rather terrible foothold and two handed mantel method... Awesome!
Sam Marks - Lead β - 12/Oct/14 with Rob Mctague, LUUMC

Took a few goes at the initial moves, the hardest part is definately the bottom but the mantle is scary! Wonderful line :D

It started to rain. That's my excuse - but i wasn't happy with what i managed to arrange in the break, tried the move up but wimped so i down climbed, just!
Dave Warburton - Lead dnf - 18/Oct/09 with Alain (LUUMC)

Oh dear, bit of a sad attempt with much resting and resorting to a top rope! Not my kind of moves, desperate rock overs on sandy crimps...
