Mark Riley - 2nd β - 28/Jul/12 with Simon Witcher

Fell off once attempting the crux. The feeling of smearing on sand is rather alien to me!
James Oswald - TR dog - 16/Jul/12

Hidden - TR O/S - 01/Jul/12

1 fall; harder for short as involves a little jump; but otherwise lovely technical corner climb

luke384 - Lead dog - 24/Jun/12

safe as houses, loads of gear, crux is up high.
spidey - Lead RP - 18/Jun/12 with luke clarke

Top quality corner climbing, didnt notice any 6b moves but I'm quite tall and did some quite long stretches. Bomber gear most of the way, nice!

Very nice route. Loads of gear. Good cruxes.
andi turner - Lead O/S - 30/Jul/11 with Bridgwood Brothers

Jordan - Lead O/S - 30/Jul/11 with Naomi Buys

Excellent route, but not really E5, felt like Fr 6c+. Loads of bomb proof cams all the way, so well safe. Really funky moves, well worth the journey.
Jon Garside - Lead β - 30/Jul/11

Very hot and sticky at about 23 degrees.
MikeYouCanClimb - Lead RP - 27/Jul/11 with Rod

A brilliant line. Lower 1/3rd is bold but 5c, next third is sustained 6a and safe. Then a mantley move in the corner gains good holds and a good friend 1 or 2/2.5 to a nicely technical finish. Easier and safer than it looks if you spend time working some gear out. E4/5 6a, F6c+ imo.
Alex Mason - Lead O/S - 01/Sep/10 with Rich Cannell, Mikey G

Somerset swede basher - Lead O/S - 26/Jul/10 with Katharine

Tough on the calves, requiring tricky sequences in places

Ran out of time to lead it regreting it thoroughly...
fennerz - TR O/S - 11/May/08 with smallerrich

Tried the flash but bailed at the second peg, worked 1 toprope and then 2 repeats for luck : ) Good gear and a super route!!!
