NDD - 2nd - 20/Jun/15 with tony stone
Led p1/p3. Spent ages under the overlap getting increasingly hot and bothered and then had to try really hard on the moves out left. The 4c moves to the belay felt hard with no chalk, killer rope drag and unshakable death pump!

Ground up. Had tried this with Henry a few days previously but thwarted by terrible conditions. Slightly easier today but still very greasy and seeping - should have waited for better connies really. Fantastic crux and 'spooky' P2. Fairly sure I could have onsighted this but oh well. Led P1 and P3

Fell off at crux 2 years ago. Felt good to smash it today in super greasy conditions. Groove pitch is an ace E2/3 5b.
Alex Mason - Lead β - 09/Apr/13 with Fingers
just a couple of greasy holds near the top of the chimney. thought the 2nd pitch was worth e3 on its own.

Only just made it to the stance! Followed Parky up Positron next.
Chris Craggs - Lead O/S - 1980 with Graham Parkes
Lead the first pitch with the standard aid of the time (and hated it) - Mick used the same situ sling and swung into space as it broke! Second pitch looked desperate & we were both spooked - decided to give up (and secretly never wanted to return).
