Tom.Myers - TR RP - 16/May/15 with Andy Myers, Charlotte Welch, Charlotte Tricklebank

Down climbed from below the peg as I had a bit of a wobble about the gear. Went back up with a bit of beta and reassurance, quested on and all was well. Crux is great fun and my calves were screaming at the top.

Ramon Marin - Lead RP - 11/Apr/15 with dave pickford

couldn't lead as wet rock, surprised to flash it even on TR. Will go back to finish asap
ashtond6 - TR O/S - 15/Nov/14

Hard for the small on the crux moves but a lovely route!
Andy Myers - Lead RP - 17/Sep/14 with Matt Pownall, James 'Melly' Metzger

Slipped off at crux but climbed it second go. Gear is good, one to lead.
Tom.Priestley - TR dog - 05/Sep/14

Hidden - Lead O/S - 23/Aug/14

Abbed to brush and check the gear was good - it is - and got beta from belaying it.
drysori - Lead β - 17/Aug/14

Unseconded. Great line, great fun

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
najki_2000 - TR dog - 01/Jul/12

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

Hidden - Lead O/S - 30/Jul/11

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!!!
