All blocks very hollow, large flake used for feet to gain break moved and was v loose. Backed off this as thought it was not worth the effort !

dprctr - Lead dog - 26/May/13 with Dale Colver, Jake, Robbie Jenkins, Henry Jenkins

Dogged yet again. I have found a way to do it still heading up the face rather than heading out on to the arete but not clean. Feels harder than the 6b.
puppythedog - Lead dog - 18/May/13 with Kemics

Watched james climb it so got a bit of beta. Cheeky knee bar. Felt hard 6a+ for the lanky, very reachy.

A strenuous and entertaining little route, more "one for the road" than a stiff'ner as we caught it on the way out.

badly bolted, would be a nasty fall going for the second bolt, so down climbed the easy start.

One rest on the last bolt before making the big reach to the finish.
grumpyoldjanner - Lead dog - 10/Jul/10 with Webster

Good warm-up route, really easy up to the last 2 or 3 moves which make it a bouldery (quite hard) 6a+

Harder than it looks, last move got me!
James_86 - Lead dog - 09/Aug/09 with Circus

Yes. As per the route name really. Packs a punch at the top, especially for the short. Quality route though and worth 2 stars for sure.
Wilbur - Lead O/S - 21/Jun/09 with Iain

Brilliant fun route. The rest had me laughing, and a nice tough move above that.
