LRob - Lead β - 30/Apr/13

Pretty much a sport route. didn't see how Murdoch did the crux or the wall above, but was clipping his gear. great move on the crux when you work it out.

Heavily dogged. UK 6b is hard.
Duncan Campbell - 2nd - 12/May/11 with Mason

wicked shouldery crux by the second bolt. By the third bolt i traversed way out right to the axle attack L/O as i committed to some gnarly fingery traverse and it kept coming.

Rob Pitt - Lead rpt - 03/Jul/10 with Keith Scarlett

never E5 or E anything for that matter (the bolt spacing adds nothing to the climbing as its all straightforward on non bolt-protected sections). tricky crux and quite blind to finish, very good climbing. Fr 7a+

Used to be more of a sport route than E5 and very reach dependent - crux can be bypassed! Top still awkward though
