Disappointing climb, very short lived. 7a seemed generous.

I am really sorry to anyone working this route but the sidepull next to the first clip blew when I was on it today. :/
MelH - TR dog - 15/Aug/10 with julesp

ahhhhhh!!! it should have gone today but i was an idiot and put my foot behind the rope on the crux, wasted loads of energy trying to get it out only to fall off anyway and get flipped upside down on a whipper anyway, next time!

Should have done it, twice fell on last tricky move, annoying.

Nice little route, pathetic effort from me! Don't know if it was because I was intimidated by the dodgy rock or just crap on this sort of rock. Either way climbed it like a total beginner. Need to give myself a good talking to and come back fresh!
julesp - Lead dog - 11/Jul/10 with Iain

Only took a couple of goes despite climbing it pretty badly. One of those days.
John 'B' Hutchinson - Lead RP - 02/Jul/10 with Jonathan Bean, James Hutchinson

Sent first red point after putting clips in. A lot of suspicious looking rock at the top. Don't think i'll be doing it again in a hurry.
