Rest of the crag was gopping, couldn't try anything else! Really nice climb though, by far the best of the 6bish routes here.

pumpy - useful left side-pull at crux
evhall - Lead dog - 02/Nov/13 with goat

Originally an onisight. A few falls at bolt 3. First day of climbing after 3 month elbow injury layoff. Fitness has suffered. Or all the jugs have fallen off?

Now a very nice fully bolted F6b sport route. (probs more like F6b+)
Stanners - Lead β - 02/Feb/13 with James Rich, Jack Bradbrook

A sport route with plenty of character! hard section is low down although upper section has some slightly dodgy lose bits and is a little strenuous.
Quarryboy - Lead O/S - 02/Feb/13 with James Rich, Rob Stanfield

Very happy to get the impossible looking initial wall done clean. Lovely moves, shame the rest of route is a bit scrappy.

Just failed at 3rd bolt. I'll get it next time... seems to be 2 5c moves in a row.
Phil Murray - Lead dog - 05/Sep/12 with Steve Wright

had to rest at the third bolt but clean to the top after that. rain was coming in so didnt go for another attempt, will come back soon for it though.
James S - Lead dog - 16/Aug/12 with peter

lazy top-roping after feeling quite weak on a failed lead attempt where i didn't even make it to the crux
pheotleyr - TR rpt - 16/Aug/12 with James

Quality. Hard parts are over by 4th bolt. Enjoyable; I'll be back for a lead attempt.
Phil Murray - 2nd RP - 20/Jul/12 with Steve Wright

Fully bolted. F6b.
