Fandabbydozy, but barely E6. Gear is good and plentiful and climbing is sequency but pretty steady really.

Get in! Felt much steadier than last visit, but nearly peeled off the crux and got wrong handed on the mono.

Adam Booth - TR RP - 28/Jul/14 with Rob Ierson, Tim Evans

Ground-up, second go. Fell off pumped to the teeth leaving the big flatty at mid height. Got to the same place even more pumped but fought harder than ever. Only just made it. Perfect experience. E6 F7b/+.

Interesting and highly sequencey climbing from start to finish with a sandy / loose top. Worked out the moves on toprope then sent it on my second head-point attempt (falling initially on the top peg). A must try line ***

Mark Riley - TR - 23/Aug/11 with Patrick Green

Finally sorted and led this clean in between showers.I need a new project now.
MikeYouCanClimb - Lead RP - 06/Jul/11 with Matthew

As per the comment below this was my dads project for years, I just belayed him and found it desperate so leading was an options. After top roping it without a rest a few weeks ago it suddenly came into reach.On the day: I top roped it clean (kicked loads of scary spiders off it) Dad top roped it clean (slipped a few times) I top roped and checked out the gear Dad tried to lead but lowered off second peg. I tried and did the same Dad tried again (got one move higher), but came down same peg. I forfeited my go as too scared so I had given up Dad tried again and cruised it Inspired my dad, I tried and found it ok
