Committing off the ground.
Rich Kirby - Lead O/S - 27/Jul/12 with Ruth

Tough, boulder problem start - hard cranking to get over the overhang. The rest of the route on the slab is probably 4c/5a, 5b at most.
kyaizawa - 2nd dog - 04/Jun/12 with Jordan Phethean

Crux is off the ground and then rest is easy. E2 6a.

Easy to place the gear for the crux and climb back to the ground before going for it. Felt more like E2 6a as the crux is off the ground and the rest of the route is much easier.
Andrew Barker - Lead O/S - 25/Aug/09 with Ken Applegate

First E3, though I guess a soft touch, as after the cruxy start, it was pretty straight forward, the upper slab felt easier than Breaking the Barrier, the climb to it's left.
Ken Applegate - Lead β - 25/Aug/09 with Andy Barker

Bit of climbing up and down the initial overhang to fiddle with gear, then just blasted through. Awesome move!
