Hard start. Took a couple of falls from top of 'slab' onto mats. Could get gear in the low crack, but not much help if you come off. A relief to get to the top.
Motown - Lead RP - 08/Jun/13 with Luke

Caspian Johnson - Lead O/S - 30/Mar/13 with Julian

first e2 onsite :) start was tricky but after that was just jug pulling. think its better than hangover/letter box
Jordon Fleming - Lead O/S - 20/Oct/12

nickstephens - Lead dnf - 20/Aug/12 with Gareth Greeves

Good to put this to bed. Pushy move on the slab but the upper wall is dreamy.

The rp0 put in sideways at the top of the crack actually held a short fall. Many attempts and hard down climbing. Hard to commit to.

went up then downclimbed and rested on the first cam, not a propper dogging as i was about 2 feet off the floor then lowered down before commiting to go for the pocket under the flake, easier climbig and good gear above this.

with a boulder mat- bottom bit a bit ankle snapping for my taste. can understand the name- the big move out right felt a bit 'go'ey. took a few up and down climbs to commit. nice route, i'd give it a star.
