C May - 2nd O/S - 22/Aug/15 with Tim

It's a long, long, green, slimy, slippery way to the first gear. No sign of the nut slot the book talks about, unless it means the one right by the in-situ thread. Don't get on this.
Longsufferingropeholder - Lead O/S - 22/Aug/15 with C May

Bold start indeed, ended up putting gear in at decking level just to prevent the potential for rolling down the hill. The concretions are nice but irritatingly not challenging compared to the start.
Tom Brierley Gore - Lead O/S - 05/Jul/15 with Nick Eaton

Very bold start, definite groundfall potential if you slip on one of the greasy footholds. Start was also slightly wet so I spent some time. Once you get to better ground it's pretty easy and feels more HVS

Thin/dusty to first concretion thread, then very pleasant & steady. 5a crux?
