Suzana 20/Sep AltLd dog

Lead first pitch one clean. Dogged first move on second on the second pitch (certainly not an easy pitch unless we went somewhere else?) Followed 3rd clean.

Good route. Led P1, which was juggy fun on a wandering line. Eve dispatched P2, which I thought was sustained and quite bold, with particularly unnerving moves moving onto the belay ledge, solid at E3. I led the sustained groove pitch (harder and cleaner than it looks) and linked in the easy exit pitch.

Thought I had it this time, tiny footslip on P2 when I was too eager to get to the saviour hold on the right. Found a very useful undercut on the corner second go and then it was fine. Will have to come back and do it again!

tebs 30/May/15 AltLd O/S

Great route, Adam led the spooky feeling crux. Insecure moves between good rests with good but not always confidence-inspiring gear. Not sure about low in the grade, I'd say pretty solid for E3.

Lead crux pitch 2. It was really hot and my feet hurt a lot.

James Oswald 29/Jun/14 AltLd O/S

Lead p1 and p3, had to rest to get a wire out on the crux pitch. Good climbing, though moving up from the ledge is bold especially if you're short. Very hot and sore feet.

mr mills 22/Jun/14 AltLd O/S

Led P1 and P3, great climbing a bit scruffy on P3 but very enjoyable !

Led Pitch 3. Tried pitch 2 but was stopped by reachy moves above the first ledge and a slight lack of confidence. Pitch 3 is brilliant though, felt really chilled so dont feel too bad about my lack of crush on the crux, I only just blagged it on second...
