Really scary canary >>
Brilliant and unlikely climbing up the wall right of Plumbline. There are just enough holds if you have the ability to connect them. The bolt is exactly where you need it but some people still have side runners in Flakeaway for which you only get an E4 tick. © ROCKFAX

Couldnt work out crux. But neither could my old man at first, which makes me feel slightly better.

Found the crux hard (6b) and safe. Might have got wrong-footed on the only good foothold midcrux. Awkward.
Alex Mason - Lead O/S - 15/Apr/13 with Gwen Lancashire

Fluffed the moves to the bolt (went too direct). Dogged to the top, then RP'd with gear in.
Ally Smith - Lead RP - 12/Jun/12 with Curly Chris

Howard Lawledge - Lead - 22/May/12 with Jack

Flashed it on Murdogh's gear, although it would have been fine to place and obvious. Cool route, 1st E5 off slate.

Rich Kirby - Lead O/S - 11/Jun/11 with Adam Lincoln

Not scary but I wasn't trusting RPs (which are bomber) in less than perfect placements. Tried the move to the bolt about 5 times but just felt very thin and committing. Lowered off due to time pressure :(

I was expecting bold and not that hard but it felt quite the opposite.
