Had to have loads of goes but kept pulling the ropes and got it in the end. Head wasn't in the right place.

fell off the low cruxes a couple of times on the onsight lead attempt. Got to the top and then lead it clean first redpoint.
tim newton - Lead RP - 24/Jan/15 with rachel slater

Did all moves 2nd go and could probably lead except the long run out put me off. First slate slab, maybe I will get braver in time.
matt30987 - TR dog - 29/Nov/14

Dogged to hell but did all the moves separately. Nice rockover at first bolt. Run out at top is no probs.

Good progression on slate slabs. I honestly didn't think those feet would stick.

Really good route. The hardest moves are low down but the is another good thin section by the last out at the top

Shoulda woulda coulda.
Rachel Somerville - TR - 23/Oct/12 with Nik

2nd go.
Nik Jennings - Lead - 23/Oct/12

took a tumble by second bolt cause i missed foot hold. went from good foot hold again and was fine to the top.
Ed Booth - Lead - 14/Mar/12 with Ben Alsford

Really hard rock over by the 1st bolt more hard moves by the 2nd bolt and then to reach the 3rd bolt (run out). If it was warmer I might have tried the lead....
SGD - TR - 28/Feb/12 with Vicky Holmes

Bruised tips and numb toes; the holds are tiny! Will be a scarey lead as it's quite run out with some precarious moves.

Lloyders - Lead RP - 30/Jun/10

Multiple goes to get past both of the first two bolts, though the moves didn't feel that bad when I got them. The rusty bolt heads didn't inspire confidence but, hey, it's slate! Top section after the third bolt looks run out but it's much easier than the rest of the route so it's fine.

Felt very fingery and was glad of a good pair of edging boots. Got in a session.
Gambit - Lead RP - 11/Apr/10 with Barney

After bens effort, in the dark, fingery obviously. Satisfying.
