Gear a bit sketchy, and got pumped figuring out line through first overhang.

Struggled with the second roof. Turned it on the right.

Really enjoyable route. Fell off on the first attempt because I messed up the sequence.

Stephi - Lead RP - 16/Sep/12 with RocKalina

Great route, I think this is the one! Climbed without a guidebook.
cbeard - Lead O/S - 06/Sep/12 with Jonny Hawkins

Not technically too hard, but the gear is pumpy to place, and not overwhelmingly amazing. The top roof is great fun.
victim of mathematics - 2nd O/S - 18/Aug/12 with James Oswald

Three roofs: 1st - hard to place gear on (fiddly and pumpy) 2nd - placing gear required a fair amount of thought (weird gear slot). Hard pulls over the lip 3rd = awesomely juggy and about VS. Cool route, not too hard but slightly unnverving..
James Oswald - Lead O/S - 18/Aug/12 with Colin Angus

rested and then found the jug to hold on....
Stephi - Lead dog - 23/Jun/12 with Stephen

Scorching hot at the crag today but this one felt easy, have done it plenty of times though! Best finish is direct over the top bulge, jug city....

Did well to nip up this before the rain started, no hard moves and very well protected but pumpy to arrange the gear and you can't see the jugs you are aiming for. The top juggy roof is great fun!

Took ages on this because i couldnt work out the moves getting myself pumped silly before finding a massive jug and feeling very silly. Tricams are now a must have on my rack!

probably the start of a lasting relationship with tricams.... as others say, pretty well protected but steep at bottom

I made it look easier than Neil. The hindsight from the leader always helped. Half decent route.

pretty well protected i though, which is conterary to the guide book description
dave o - Lead O/S - 17/Feb/08 with Julia H

Beautiful route. Its really not that unprotected, even where it is slightly dodgy, if you put in enough marginal pieces (and there is a lot), something is bound to hold!
