Led with gear left in the crux after rich backed off. Not a climb to hang around on the crux of but a nice route.

stewart100 - 2nd O/S - 12/Apr/14 with Brian Pollock

An Excellent start then it fizzels out after the overhang which was pretty easy. The meat of the route is before the roof and the crux is not well protected.

Good start, but a shame interest isn't sustained after the overhang

Jen Crook - 2nd - 02/May/12 with Adam Davis, Mark Patterson

Unfinished business with this route from last season. This time managed to commit to the moves after a couple of aborted attempts. Not technically hard in the end, just worrying not knowing if the next handhold will be good when above the only dodgy runner.

Graeme led. We'd flicked one of the ropes over to the right to diminish rope drag, so I didn't really get to follow the same line.
