boulderholder - Lead O/S - 02/Jun/13

pmurdy - Lead - 22/Oct/11 with Sam Ashworth

Had to restart because my only nut came out half way up the route. Not obvious what was in or out but don't think I cheated, got a runner in crack on left. Very fingery (real word ??)

payeo20 - Lead O/S - 15/May/10

Andy Fielding - Lead - 11/Apr/10 with Dave Sadler

Possibly got lured a bit far left near the start to place gear from the better ledges on October Slab. Good, sustained interest throughout the route.
