Ran out of time for the headpoint - definitely worth returning for!
alaan - TR O/S - 01/Jun/14 with Ally

TR'd a few times in '08-'09. TR'd a couple more times, then lead just as a rain shower started.
Ally Smith - Lead RP - 05/May/14 with John Maskell

Ed Booth - TR rpt - 05/Apr/14 with Edwin Mitchell, Rob Ireson, Adam Booth

Greasy as sin! Felt way harder than the last time I got on it! Still might be a go-er if I'm fresh and conditions are good. Need to harden some of the holds...
Adam Booth - TR dnf - 05/Apr/14 with Rob Ierson, Ed Mitchell, Ed Booth

mark20 - Lead RP - 22/Sep/13

Gutted I dropped the flash going for the wrong hold on the top section. 2nd go. Climbed trailing lead rope and placing gear to. Top section is putting me off big time.
MorganPreece - TR rpt - 25/May/13 with Sam Tolhurst

Great route. Got all the moves with some rests in between and two worked sections. Pump stuff!
monsteratt - TR dog - 25/May/13 with Sam T, Ben M, Morgan Preece

Got it clean second go on a TR. Account open!
Adam Booth - TR RP - 10/Jun/12

One of the best lines about with climbing to match. Wouldn't be amiss at E7 but regardless of the grade its just superb.
nathanlee - Lead RP - 17/Mar/12 with Dom Lee

A grand day out...

Hidden - TR dog - 21/May/11

in the rain.
frost - TR dog - 18/Sep/10 with Pete H

Lead after practice in the morning. Had a complete mind blank on the top section and forgot how to climb it but it came together in the end. Birkett is a legend, the start is well sketchy!
JM - Lead RP - 02/Sep/10 with Dave Deary

good send, the moves and holds are never quite secure, so its good fun. slipped a couple of times, but clung on- falling would have hurt
anguskille - Lead RP - 14/Apr/10 with Tom and Ed

this is sooo nails! desperate to the first lot of pegs then a couple of hard moves, my arms were torched by the end of it...
fennerz - TR RP - 03/Aug/08 with Angus Kille

samwisethebrave2 - TR dnf - 14/May/08 with Tim Evans, Rob Ireson

Flashed! But it's gonna take some balls to lead it...
Mark Riley - TR β - 30/Sep/07 with Patrick Green

lukea - TR dog - 27/Aug/07 with Rich

Absolutely quality - first E8. Ace!!
