Got it first go today after falling off it a few times a few years ago. Hard ready move to get up the initial groove then steady to the top but with some tricky moves. Take a thin nose biner for the top clip!

Second try. Not the best route on this wall but has an exquisite little technical groove at the bottom. There's no proper finishing jugs unfortunately. The continuation looked pretty dirty and the chains of that route are still well below the top of the crag. Been told that apparently you can climb all the way to the top though. Typical British bolting!

More like Never to Clean! Both because I failed to redpoint it despite two goes and because it was a bit dirty in places - doesn't look like this one gets done all that often. Felt quite adventurous for a sport route as it as a bit dirty/loose in placed and it wasn't obvious where to go as the holds weren't chalked and it does wander around a bit. Vaguely remembered the crux from my attemps two years ago. Got it clean to the crux move first go. Thought it might go next time but it still spat me off! A technical and fairly physical move. Oh well, there's always next time... The rusty lower off crab needs replacing but would need a spanner to undo it

Tried this 3 times. Third time round was feeling strong going into the crux but couldn't clip the penultimate staple due to my quickdraw (WC Helium) being too thick!!! Had previously used Brian's (DMM Shadow) and it was ok. Should have just carried on but got rather confused and downclimbed to a poor rest. Decided to go for it anyway but didn't have quite enough left to reach through to the 'pocket' above the staple. Got beta from Brian for the start of the crux sequence(creep up to a left hand pinch by the penultimate staple).
