Don't normally bother putting in 'DNFs' but seeing as I flashed the early exit version (V3?)before realising you had to go further round just adding as a note to self..
Wilbur - Sent dnf - 28/Jan/12

Very good. Flashed the early doors exit version, which feels about V3/6A+. The full traverse topping out just before the small leaning block feels correct around soft 6C.

Aiming for the full traverse as in BMC guide (V4? seems a bit mean). Worked most of it today.

thetradlad - Sent dnf - 12/Mar/11

Really nice (despite the arse scraping-ness) and felt worth 6c if you do the full line from the BMC guide (ie. go all the way to the end before you top out rather than topping out up the holds 3/4 of the way along)

Really pleased to do this. Tried this last March but didn't have the strength to link it up. Felt okay today. A bit unclear as to how far you traverse round the block.
