Mike's first E1 lead. He totally cruised it. I fell off crux first go. Lowered down and got it second go. Felt absolutely desperate and very precarious, not sure I'd ever try to lead this one. I think this route might suit the tall better.Fiona Reid - 2nd RP - 10/Sep/14 with Mike
Height an advantage

Good moves between rests. Would make a very good first E1.

Better and cleaner than it looks. Technical moves with good gear and good rests.

Toprope with Jason for fun. Never a 5C, more like a 5a.

Ace, well protected, although there are some suspect bits of rock which can be avoided

Self-belay. NOT 5c, it is 5b. :o)

Short and tough as first outdoor climb. Followed lead with much swearing. I found a couple of semi-dyno reaches were required so if you're not tall you need faith the holds will be good when you hit them. (Which they are)

i found it a bit loose in places.
great climb though.
R0bbie - Lead dog - 19/Jun/08 with Leighn Chambers
Fell off on my first attempt to second taking a pretty big block with me, must have loosened up during the heavy rain. Gave it another going over and pulled some more off, watch out till its had a bit more traffic.
Still a great e1 tho!
andymoin - 2nd rpt - 06/Jun/08 with Sean
Good route with some interesting moves.The route was well cleaned up by Andy a few weeks ago, a worthy Dolerite E1 and another now climbable line for the quarry which is slowly being cleaned by a few heroic uphill gardeners.hats off boyz.
Sean Bell - Lead O/S - 06/Jun/08 with Andy
Great route, solid E1. Well cleaned by Andy.
beegsyboy - Lead O/S - 04/Jun/08 with Al
Spent an hour or two cleaning it removing several tones of mud and some very lose blocks (One being very crucial for the original route grade of e1, 5b , would now say its hard E1, 5c **).
Really nice line with some weird moves.

I'm pretty certain this was my first E1. How come it is now 5c? I remember it feeling straight forward when I did it - has something fallen off?
