Several years since last ascent and brief shower on the crux made this a little more exciting than I'd planned. Still fine, and great climbing.

ferdia - Lead O/S - 05/May/14 with Andy
Looked pretty cool so thought f**k it and gave it a go, came off at the crux and ended up lowering off in growing darkness. . . Maybe wasnt best time try and get 1st e2. Next time

Just a general note that the spike jug just after you pull onto the first diffucult section (used to take a good wire) is now dangerously loose, making the first section slightly harder to climb and protect. Probably needs glueing or removing.

Better than it looks! FInished up Strongarm, shame the topo encourages you to scuttle off left.
jacobjlloyd - Lead O/S - 10/Jul/11 with Dave Macleod, Paul Diffley, James Oswald
Awesome. First e2 but lead on Jacob's gear, placed a few more wires for it. Felt quite confident moving above my gear. DId the awesome strongarm finish and lowered off the stake. Great arm bar rest in the crack before the crux which wasn't too hard. Was convinced that it was quarried grit!

Fun climbing on enormous holds, two ways to go at crux, either power up or swing left for hidden holds...

Good route. Pumpy for placing gear, but a big friend at the back of the crack sure helps for the crux. Made a big difference having seconded it the previous w/e.

Quite an easy E2 but a brilliant climb. E2 5b perhaps more appropriate. Happy to do it, was not feeling up to much in the morning feeling ill and still aching from drunkenly falling out of a tree on Friday.

great route, great gear. was psyched for the on-sight but pumped out big time at the crux and slumped on gear. Should have gone for it when I could. Another time.
