Pumpy! Once back on the deck, my forearms felt like they had hotaches in them! SO pumped! Fell at the bulge on Penny. Felt like I climbed well despite the pump, but probably put too much gear in on Penny but better safe than sorry. Immaculate climbing up the wall. Brilliant fun!

Went for it, not as bouldery as Penny but thinner. Super-pumpy, only just made it to the top. First E4 onsight, well chuffed! Good kit but spaced, I laced it then returned to the ground. All the holds are there, definitely a 2 star route.

Perhaps best description that of original CC guide. From obvious hold climb direct to peg and continue to join katana/penny at quartz. No mention of going right. From peg to katana utterly draining for me. lots harder than katana.

cool climbing, but short lived. just reach the crack once pegs clipped. nearly slipped at top of crack and just caught a small crimp. sick.
Alex Mason - Lead O/S - 17/Jan/10 with Mikey G, Herve

Took a fatty peeler right at the top where katana joins king bee, SO pumped! best failure ever!

Nice climbing but not E5 by a long way. Steady E4.

wish Gogarth North hadnt come out otherwise this would have been a first E5. regardless, it felt E4: steady climbing on good gear. moves are really nice - recommended. by the way thought Gogarth North description was misleading, it should read something like "move up left-trending diagonal crack, break right and head to triangular spike, move up to gain a crack and good gear. climb to the peg using small edges, continue past this to gain a good hold and horizontal break, move right to join Katana*." (*now known as Penny). i trended right after peg (as per description) but it looks like you could / should continue past peg to gain the hold / break i mention above.
