Layback was a bit tricky with gear and hands wanting to go in same place, then nice climb, if a bit thruxy at the top. Good second VS lead of the day and season.

Better than the original!

Lovely. Paul led it well albeit with some hesitation at the top chimney! Followed in style - always easier with a rope above you. :)

The opening move was hard 5a? It is not easy above, either. Good route nonetheless. David's first ever grit experience and he had a tough time!

Very poor effort on my part at following Peri up the route. Awkward to establish yourself at the base of the crack but easier ground above.

First time on this route, and third route in 8 months.....bloody good fun. The diagonal crack has just enough edge on it to layback off but if jamming is your bag that two. Interesting finish through the chimney, my luck was in not much Pooo

1st time back on grit for years - OMG! eventually got my shit together - remembered why i don't like grit jamming cracks and lay backed the wall. Bring it on!
Timo Austino - AltLd - 15/May/11 with mad Len

Lay back crack with good cam placement up to short traverse into the chimney.

hard start leads to great jams - good route well protected !
lithos - Lead O/S - 24/Apr/10 with Roy Crouch

seconded alan on this two years ago. one pre placed piece of gear as second from previous team had been unable to remove it . The technical crux is the bouldery start, unless youre very, very tall.
