About half way through the route I was struck with torticollis, my entire neck seized up so I could barely move it and had to lower off. Cool line though, will be back!
Rachel Slater - Lead dnf - 24/Aug/13 with Olli Crudge

Tried to finish it after Rachel lowered off, got far too pumped and decided to abb for the gear.

Very pumpy. Burned myself out for the rest of the trip on this one! Much easier when you know the moves and gear.

Great route. Superbly protected. I feel this would be E1 5b if on Peak grit.

Definitely not HVS. E2 and very pumpy. It's hard to place the gear, bridging out between the chockstone higher up ISN'T very restful. After some downclimbing I got pumped out of my head. Great route

Greate route. It looks quite easy from below but it's quite sustained. Bang E2, 5b
PaulTanton - Lead O/S - 07/Jun/12 with Helen Fawcett

great route, gear already in but still, more like a grit HVS. never E2 in a million years!

Excellent pumpy crack climbing though more like 5b than 5c. Best finish is straight over the top roof for a fitting finale...
