[Highlights of 2013 - trad in the Leap!, 2 kb]Arrange gear, including clipping the old peg, then down to the deck for a rest. Go up on greasy pockets to the right of the peg, then traverse back higher, tricky on smooth flat holds, to the thread. Easier, excellent climbing above leads up to the very steep top wall, where a big reach off a sharp hold leads to a break, then easier to the top. Amazing pitch!

brices - Lead O/S - 13/Jul/13 with Joe Innes, Sash

Messy lead. Heavy rain but fairly sheltered. I got incredibly pumped very quickly by the peg. Climbed direct to the peg then right. Foot slipped and nearly fell on the traverse left. The rest of the route is absolutely awesome, and the juggy finish is thrilling!

Flash. Abseiled the line last year to clean kit, also had a look at the top thread before the send. Second route on the west it the best wall in the UK?

Excellent. First E5 (hard E4), was very aprehensive at first but once id arranged some gear at the start and come back to the deck it was steady enough to the top. F6c, not pumpy and more than adequate gear.
Alex Mason - Lead O/S - 27/Aug/07 with Thomas Martin

Prevaricated on scorch the earth's crux for a while. Great moves.
