An impeccably stylish ascent. Spent a long time getting sore feet, then went off route onto Flashdance, which I rushed and fell off. Then resumed Blinding Flash from where I'd deviated, but after a few metres decided I couldn't face the foot pain and finished leftwards instead of right.

Got spat off multiple times. Tricky to read sequences. Hard.

Fell off crux after hanging around for 40 minutes trying to figure sequence out - tough to read! Hard to commit as slightly dubious gear though one good nut placement. Very thin through crux and top part is no pushover. Beautiful climbing.
Luxulyan - Lead dog - 25/Jan/14 with Tom Murrell

Repeat ascent. Climbed direct!
Sean Kelly - TR - 19/Aug/13 with Harry Pearce

Climbed very direct. No harder than Flashdance, but so much more of it. Very taxing on the feet!!
Sean Kelly - TR - 02/May/13 with Harry Pearce

One silly preventable fall early on, the rest clean.

One rest, when it rained. Otherwise clean, gear is there but some might not be bomb proof.
Kevster - Lead dog - 14/Oct/12

very direct straight line up the centre of the slab with no pegs clipped would be very nervy but possible.the climbing is reasonable and easy with a rope above.all small gear and some definitely untrustworthy so e5 6a would sum it up
misterb - TR O/S - 20/Sep/12 with bob

Shynnagh - TR - 13/May/12

Felt smooth on lead once gear was trusted. Much much harder to onsight i reckon. every move is amazing.
Ed morris - Lead RP - 02/May/12 with Jack

Took Some serious assistance from Ed, but a great climb. Need to have another crack with some broken in shoes!

Ed morris - TR β - 27/Nov/11 with ewan
