Really good route. Fell off on crux on onsight attempt. Finished it. During lower off practised the crux 2 or 3 times then got it clean on 2nd go ground up. Crux is hard especially if you're not that tall.

Got it 2nd go, found the last ledge to get some back on helpful for the final push.

Toby Dunn - Lead - 30/Jun/13 with Neil Stabbs

Did this in light rain, very warm and humid but the rock was fine. Did it on the first go after an attempt a few weeks ago.
MikeYouCanClimb - Lead RP - 21/Jun/13 with Andrew

Definitely should have flashed this! Easy with rests right up to finish and just slipped off hard move before finishing jugs, taking the rest of the skin off my fingers. Got back on and did the move fine.

Top Crux is good sequence once worked out
Mattlamb90 - Lead RP - 11/Nov/12 with Luke Owens

My first proper Orme route, amazing climbing. Tricky crimpy section through the lower bulge then an awesome technical crux section up top on tiny crimps and a mono! I would highly recommend this to anyone operating at this grade!
Luke Owens - Lead RP - 11/Nov/12 with Matt Lamb

good, messed up the crux and ended up doing it some tricky way out right.

!st RP. Couldn't hang on long enough to read it on the onsight, difficult to know where to go at 3rd bolt and what to do at penultimate bolt. Felt ok on RP though.

Very good route probably easy to walk past. Not nails but tricky. sustained climbing on blind holds but with good rests, to a hard technical finish on the headwall
