Point Taken >>
[It goes where?! Sophie looking out the "giant roof crack" on Black and Tan, Holyhead. , 3 kb]28m. A good deal more tricky than Tension beside it and rather hard for the grade. Steep crack at end a bit fingery but good juggy holds for stepping out from under the roof.

Got blown off the crux move!! Thankfully only on second. Quite stiff for the grade, or maybe it just felt worse because it was soo windy.
iceicebaby - 2nd - 18/Oct/10 with Sam Wood

Everything went well until halfway through roof traverse. Spent a lot of time trying to dislodge firmly wedged nut and then a buried cam in over-hang which I realised afterwards wasn't even our gear!! Managed the swing round with much excitement and topped out only for Steve to ab down and retrieve nut that I couldn't budge. Apart from that..sweet.

sick route
rustaldo - Lead O/S - 09/Aug/10 with Kit Perry

The first 10 metres is VD climbing, it gets more interesting as you traverse under the roof to a very scary move onto the arete. There is also a cam a piton and a tri cam wedged in the diagonal crack, which can be clipped for bombers protection.

Standing out as the true crag classic from a distance with the great traversing line under the capping roof, it did not fail to impress. Interesting moves all the way across past stuck cam and up the slightly thrutchy corner! ( :
