Dr Toph - 2nd rpt - 20/Aug/14 with Will

Bold then awkward, thankfully not at the same time. Flakes/holds to reach base of block a bit creaky.

Good crimps below crux, good gear placement Colonnel Jones
sergio46 - 2nd O/S - 31/May/11 with Ian Jones

Borderline grade. I found 8 good placements so claims of poor gear are wrong! Good climbing though and definitely deserves a quality rating.
Ian Jones - Lead O/S - 31/May/11 with Serge Gomez

One very funky move half way point
sophiecb - 2nd - 31/Jan/11 with Toph

Tricky wee number, and only one piece of gear worth a shit. E2 5c
Dr Toph - Lead O/S - 31/Jan/11 with Sophie

Scottish78 - 2011

Denpov - TR dog - 29/Jun/10

Bit of a yo-yo ascent - Mal backed off before the hard bit and I led past his gear.
Neil Adams - Lead O/S - 05/Apr/09 with mal_meech

Hidden - 2nd β - 05/Apr/09

Pretty chuffed, HP it cleanly I reckon E2, 5C **.
andymoin - Lead RP - 24/Feb/08 with Geome, Rienhart, Tim Cross

beegsyboy - 2nd O/S - 24/Feb/08 with Andy + Reinhart

Abbed and cleaned it, pulled a lose flake off tho theres still one there that you can pull on but wouldnt survive a fall. TR soled it after, last moves are awsome.
andymoin - TR RP - 17/Feb/08

Dirty with dodgy gear so backed of, will be back and clean it first. Past threads on UKC suggest it now goes at E3 5c after the various works at ratho.
andymoin - Lead dnf - 10/Feb/08 with tim, rinehart
