Good climbing, quite committing. Good protection in the first half, but a bit run out for the second.

slip of the foot had me sitting on my first bit of gear. Thread is small and faffy and after failing to get a sling through multiple times, gave up and went run out instead.

El3ctroFuzz - Lead O/S - 27/Feb/12 with Tristan Sherlock

carefull route reading required and even then its a sand bag at hvs 5a.a good e1 5b with a superb traverse left.the finish a bit up and right after traverse is nicer and adds more climbing
misterb - Lead O/S - Feb/12 with bob

Great moves lower down and seem to miss the gear in the top half of the climb which made it a tad run out.

Started too far right and ended up too far left. Whoops. Felt more like E1 5b as a result.

Foot hold broke on the begining of the traverse, cheesegrater fall. Requires a lot of technique. Hard HVS.
