Way harder than it looked
Ross.Cooper - Lead dog - 20/Jul/14 with Patrick Hill

Start was thin and crimpy but the crux for me was getting into the groove above, great technical climbing
Russell Birkett - Lead O/S - 23/May/14 with Tim Whitaker

Crimpy and sore on fingers! Couldn't quite stick the long move left at the 2nd clip.
Koon - Lead dog - 03/May/14 with John Sharples

Close but no cigar - seems to be a bit reachy for the short but as luck would have it I'm not particularly short.
JLS - Lead dog - 03/May/14 with Koon M.

Martin Mc - Lead rpt - 30/Jun/13 with Dougie

Dogged the clips in, worked it a couple of times on top rope then got it first RP. Also its possible to get a hands off knee bar rest mid crux
Fergus Cuthill - Lead RP - 02/Mar/13 with Tom Eadington

Hidden - Lead β - 02/Mar/13

cat22 - TR dog - 06/Oct/12 with Mike

Hidden - Lead dog - 05/Jun/12

valecoastclimber - Lead O/S - 04/May/12

Everything seeping bar this route, so had a play. Got up into the groove to the right of the thin slab (at 5th clip) and then couldn't figure out the sequence. Decided to stop...fail! Have since learnt going left to the twin cracks is probably best...another visit someday...
ANC - Lead dnf - 19/Nov/11 with Keith Alexander

A major jump in grade for me as easy stuff was damp. Got it all once sequences figured out but not strong enough yet to lead clean. Great moves though - a project!!
Stingraypoindex - TR dog - 08/Aug/11

Hidden - Lead dnf - 03/Aug/11

craig1983 - TR dog - Aug/11 with Graham, Kaeryn, Stewart Cable

Hidden - Lead O/S - 03/Jul/11

Dogged up the draws then about three go's on TR, best go about two falls. Sequence seems ok, nothing to desperate.
JLS - Lead dog - 02/May/11 with Burnsie

Hidden - Lead RP - 02/May/11

cat22 - TR dnf - 16/Apr/11 with Mike

First time in Weem. A bit hard on fingers but good climb
mike_french - Lead RP - 11/Apr/11

Harry Holmes - Lead dog - 25/Mar/11 with Robbie Cammack

Another frustrating route, as could do all the moves easily but linking them proved hard. Got highest on first attempt! Nice fingery climbing but cold today.....
Chad123 - Lead dog - 27/Feb/11 with Kiwi Steve, Viv

jess - Lead RP - 18/Sep/10 with martin

feel like i could have done it if my finger wasn't still injured!!
ashknot - Lead dog - 26/Jun/10 with Linda

Hidden - Lead O/S - 22/Apr/10

Climbed direct past first bolt, way harder than it was before the chipping/unchipping was done.
sheppy - Lead RP - 20/Mar/10 with simon, iain n jules

julesp - Lead RP - 20/Mar/10 with Simon, Sheppy, Iain

andyinnes - Solo O/S - 2010

dj_brigham05 - Lead RP - 22/Jun/09 with Rich Clarke

Tried it O/S, failed, but got it 1st RP so pretty happy with that!
Fultonius - Lead RP - 13/Apr/09 with Ross, Mal, Nicola and Neil

Neil Adams - Lead dog - 13/Apr/09 with Ally F

kevg - Lead RP - 13/Jul/08 with Fras, Stevie

After the first effort, I thought there was no way I could ever climb this thing - just too sustained and crimpy, but not so bad once you've got the moves and sequence wired. Definitely a *** route IMO. Did it with the short traverse left into the cracks at mid-height, but have since seen it done more direct, which looks a better and more efficient line.
Fraser - Lead RP - 17/May/08 with Kev

Hidden - Lead RP - May/08

2nd attempt
sparkass - Lead RP - Jul/07 with Alex Goram

figfour - 2007

New project. Managed to link from the ground to the lip of the overhanging section. Need to be fitter, but didn't seem too bad on first acquaintance.
