Hidden - Lead - 28/Jul/13
6b way, steady to bolts then a tough move then steady but bold, there is gear but don't know the quality of the rock.
centurion05 - Lead O/S - Jul/13
Hard crux (went straight up - 6b)! Took a while to work out the moves and commit though! Should have taken some slightly larger gear for the groove.

did it the 6b way, awesome route
henry francis - Lead O/S - 30/May/13
Been on the list for a while, really enjoyed this. Bit cold (despite the date!) so not so fluid on crux (did this up then left way), which climbs superbly. The groove is steady (Fr 4 or 5) but not trivial, only reliable nut before spike is near the top. Classic moment whilst lassoing, me: "Imagine what it'd be like if you dropped the sling, crazy!" and virtually the next second I drop my sling - idiot. Magically it caught on my left heel and I was able to collect it with my right foot. I had a 120 sling and eventually got the spike but a 240 would be way easier - stick a krab on and throw over spike. More E3 than E4 probably but if you did fall in the groove not so clever. Overall, really good but steady head needed for the groove.

It got too dark to see the holds so came down off crux

Up and down about 5 times with marginal progress each time, strong winds were just too off-putting so reversed.

erm... julian its not onsight if you pre-place the gear.. hard 6a imo.. easier and less runnout than short stories.

Had been nervous about this route for 25 years so abbed to place some gear in the groove. But it's easy and you could place it in the lead. Did the 6b crux first go. Good route. Short stories is next.
Julian Cooper - Lead O/S - 29/Aug/11 with Ben Steel
Thin pulling for few moves on crux, reasonable medium wire in groove. Played on this on a top rope several years ago when I started out.

Done both ways, each felt of pretty much equal difficulty. Cool thin no hands rock up on direct way.

Disappointingly easy and pretty damn dangerous. The gear seems OK, but the rock is really not solid. Nice route though. Will be an interesting E5 5c when the spike falls to bits.

6a/b move next to a bolt then runout VS almost to the top. Sling the spike then another 5b/c move. An interesting route!
david morse - Lead O/S - 01/Nov/10 with duncan+james
Went down and left at the crux - felt desperate. Took a very long time to lead due to post halloween hangover, truly shocking. Sharp, stiff edges on boots and a clear head would improve things. Run out felt fine.

Went direct rather than down and left. Found it hard 6a rather than 6b. Certainly soft for E4.
Somerset swede basher - Lead O/S - 15/Aug/08 with Aly Robertson
1 fall going direct from the bolt
MikeT - 2nd dog - Jul/08 with MS
Bit of a let down. Quite discontinuous and the move which is given 6B in the guide is soft 6B at that, more like 6a but the move is not amazing enough to make up for the rest of it.
