Battled with the slime for some time but ultimately ran out of patience and energy.
alaan - Lead dnf - 17/Aug/14 with Will

Quite pleased to lead p1 with only 1 fall. Total slime fest, but great fun all the same. p2 is out there!
dan gibson - AltLd dog - 22/Jul/14 with Tom Livingstone

Led P2. P1 was totally gopping, seeping like a slippery cow, so resorted to French Free. P2 is pretty epic in it's own right.
Tom Livingstone - AltLd O/S - 22/Jul/14 with Dan Gibson

p1 only. It looked dry from below, but was as slimy as ever, so a few rests. Finished up Moon p3.

Luke Brooks - AltLd O/S - 05/Sep/12 with Calum

First pitch a bit of a graunch, second pitch just incredible
Adam Long - Lead O/S - 24/Jul/11 with Ben Bransby

P1 only. 2 rests before I decided that I actually wanted to pull on the mush at the bottom of the crack; actually OK once you do it. Then I just didn't have the jamming skills for the crack - 1 rest. Then decided I'd climb it with legs outside groove/crack on wall and hands in crack, this was much better! A taxing but superb pitch.
ksjs - 2nd dog - 08/Jun/11 with jo

Led P1. Absolutely superb route. The crack has quite a dampness too it. 2nd pitch is wild. Similar to the Camel in style and difficulty.
