In the dark with a headtorch. I couldn't see a foothold under the bulge mid crux so had to hang and eyeball it.

What an amazing route! A great, flowing, dynamic sequence out of the 'cave' on positive sidepulls and pockets. Tried it lots over 2 years ago and found it nails. Felt like I floated up it today, 1 bolt to bolt then sent. Many thanks to James for the spaced out mid climb mantra called out to me whilst he was working the adjacent route:''all the holds are good, you can rest on the smallest of holds,you've climbed it a thousand times'' -weirdly helpful

Really nice climbing on this route. Had tried top roping this a year before but couldn't remember any of the moves and with Dougie shouting beta for the hard bits as I climbed this was essentially a flash. Nearly came off the crux move but held it. Got a bit pumpy at the top but could shake out before it got too bad.

Such a nice climb! It has sustained and interesting moves from start to end. Really enjoyable. 1st go dogged putting clips in. 2nd go I fell off going for the huge thankgod jug at the end before the anchor. Gutted. Not unhappy to go back and do it again though.

Went bolt to bolt and then First RP try easy enough sequence good rests move left to below the tufa was good love those kind of moves
Michael Allday - Lead RP - 11/Aug/13

Got through all of the hard bits insight, but couldn't make the next clip, which was actually quite straightforward when I thought about it. Great route.

Got it clean with beta until the big move to the weird small pockety things, which took a lot of working out. Hard moves up to the crux but can rest, then the crux and relentless above that to the lower off.

Tom Livingstone - Lead dog - 27/Apr/13 with Henry Francis

Retroflash. Had tried a couple of years ago but all I could really remember was the tempo of the climb. Best route on the wall imo.

A quick bolt to bolt to warm up and work out the moves and then it went easy on 1st RP. Did it again to get draws out.

barni - Lead dog - 31/Oct/09 with long jon

onsight failed at 2nd bolt - bad route reading. 1 or 2 rests to work out moves to bulge then about 5 gos to get crux right - tricky. struggled to sort moves above this but fine once i had decent sequence. 2nd go: done, straightforward. really good route but a tricky onsight (crux holds on The Bloods are in for Bloodsports)
