Bailed at the steep bit. Thought the bolts were shit with hangers wobbling everywhere!

petellis - Lead O/S - Dec/13 with Curly Chris

Top tip: use the holds on the slab to the right to get through the crux
Pete_Frost - Lead O/S - 24/Nov/13 with Jasper Court

Hard crux move about two thirds up quite high above gear with not much to aim for either.

Henners - Lead O/S - Dec/10 with Alan Cassidy

Didn't manage the move coming off the nose/arete back on to the face.... Needed to man up, but definitely next time, great climb.
Stuart Wildman - Lead dnf - 10/Nov/10 with Steve Boxwell

Got confused on what I assume is the crux (you step left onto a ledge and are presented with a blank section) and had a take whilst I thought about what to do. Very technical and nice, had to tighten a few bolts on the way up and the gear isn't shiny any more which freaked me out a bit.
matthewjames - Lead dog - 26/Mar/10 with Cherie McCormack, Mike Byrne, Matt Cooke, John Cheung

nadeem - Lead dnf - Mar/10

A couple of falls from the crux required I have a second go.
JLS - Lead RP - 12/Feb/10 with Team El Chorro

2 loose bolts and a rusty peg... crux bolt was ok though.
adam06 - TR - 21/Jan/10 with chris carr, Sarah Lewington

Very nice climbing - tricky technical crux sequence made me pause a while though..

nathanmanc - Lead O/S - Feb/08 with Dave Morse

Super nice climbing but dubious bolts
Dr Caterpillar - 2nd O/S - Feb/08 with Adam

Quite exciting without any gear to back up the ageing bolts.
Circus - Lead O/S - Feb/08 with Loz

Brown - Lead O/S - 19/Dec/07 with Matt

Seemed very hard (6c?), 2 other competent groups backed off, one member of which had found this climb easy 2ys previously. Plus just after the crux grove there is a rusty peg, not a bolt!
Dan 85 - Lead dog - 30/Mar/07 with Tim

Maybe Im just not well practiced at limestone, but this seemed harder than any F6a+ Ive been on before!
