First E3 onsight on Outcrop Grit. Upper moves felt a little scary.
MischaHY - Lead O/S - 22/Jun/14 with Leo Woodhead

Tried before but ended up doing straight and narrow. Almost dropped the move to the break too. Climbing pretty poorly recently. Oh well.

After bailing off last time onto the original, it was good to stick that high foot match! Tricky.

masonwoods101 - Lead O/S - 2011

mwatson - 2011

got on some blokes top rope just to give the moves a try, cheap shoes screwed me up by making my smears insecure, so I fell off the lower crux, but was fine on the upper crux.
Aaron Hauptmann - TR dog - 30/Oct/10 with Danny Salvadori

oliver.ghill91 - TR dog - 30/Oct/10

Nice climbing all the way up. I found the crux to be the second move past the ledge, not the one getting onto the ledge.

Finishing up the arete instead of the original felt a bit artificial.

Comedy upside down fall off the tricky move on the upper arete, fairly safe as my head ended up at least 2 metres off the ground! Got it second go.
