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

Still used a wire at the top as it's a bit of a way from the final bolt to the peg. Good climbing

Third go. Made up as it felt impossible first go. Got me a bit psyched for sport.

Rob Pitt - Lead β - 10/Oct/09

1st go: dogged to warm up, trouble with move round bulge. placed 2 wires between top bolt and peg. 2nd go: that move above the 1st bolt felt fairly full-on, drop it and it might not be very nice (best done with first 2 bolts clipped) - proper concentration required. good climbing despite the poor bolting.
ksjs - Lead RP - 10/Oct/09 with rob

First RP. Definitely ** but needs rebolting
Stig - Lead RP - 05/Sep/09 with Goi

Bolts dangerously spaced at the start
goi.ashmore - Lead RP - 05/Sep/09 with James Rees

DavidEvans - Lead O/S - Jul/09 with adam ellwood

Dogged, as was the theme of the day. A hard lock off move on the second crux saw me off several times. Also the first bolt is dangerously high and nearly took a bad fall onto the ledge below when moving dynamically to the clipping jug. Beware.
