The classic of the crag, the reason you went there. Hard 5c I felt.

Ahab tried to lead and couldn't do the finish, so lowered. I pulled the ropes and led on his gear. Tricky moves to reach the final break, followed by that finish. Having faith in an almost non-existent, sloping dimple up high for the right hand was key. Glad to succeed after backing off it a few years ago.

A great route with an awkward top out. Loads of gear. Had two attempts: slipped on the first and blew onsight; but then fell on the second attempt anyway. Hauled myself back up and third time was a charm.

Good gear up to the crux, then very committing moves with no gear at the top. Backed off and sneaked round the corner and up to the top.

Thought I was climbing NC Madness, at least that was my intention. Therefore didn't do the very last move (crux), as it seemed way harder than 4c! Tried it, almost went for it, but then shuffled round the ledge and up the easy corner. Wish I'd gone for it now!

I LOVED the style of this. I couldn't lead it any time soon. I've marked as dogged because to start the climb, I pulled the rope, but after that, things went smoothly. The moves are lovely. However, this was unintentional. We initially set out to be doing the VS on the arÍte so didn't do the proper finish of hard times with the 5c move.

Second go, after going too far left.

if this is 5c then top move of go shorty is 6a easily

Could not see how to do the hard move over the top.

Very good climbing. If you have the reach, you have the top...

Great slab on awesome friction but hand ripping granite. Crux balancy moves are right at the top. Didn't think I could do the top section without falling so climbed up the inside of the upper right ledge to get some high protection in and then came back across. Managed to do it clean after all.

No Harder than 5c. Just needs a bit of brain for the top out..

got all the way to the last move but couldn't get enough friction to top out!! There is nothing there! So fell off it 4 times trying!
