Poor route finding, (stay slightly right of the cracks in the lower wall as its much pleasanter on a good flake), poor technique and poor gear placement meant I got royally spanked by this route. One to consider and try again next time. Also steep and pumpy.

pumpy but good, lots of gear in the crack, many variants possible, have to go back and play on some of them

Jamie Brown - 2nd O/S - 10/Jun/13 with Rob Stone, Paul Davies

Robs lead, great route but sustained. Nice hand jams at the big overlap, allows some thinking time - but not a lot!

I climbed a sort of 'Cosmonaut Indirect' due to a lack of guidebook! It turns out, i started up Cosmonaut direct, then followed Cosmonaut for a while, and then finished up the Variation finish.... then left to the tree. Felt Hard VS 5a, which would probably figure!

Really hard on arms - lots of swearing!
heather.deane - 2nd dog - 23/Apr/08 with Andy

Would have been a nice climb had arms not given up at the crux. Will have another go some time.
