Was just going to retrieve a nut that I left behind last week after lobbing off (shouldn't have tried it as the last route of the day), but thought I might as well climb out instead of jug up the rope. Turns out one more move and I would have had good holds and gear! Nice bit of climbing on the middle pitch. Might come back and lead it sometime.

Led in one pitch this time, the way to do it!

Plenty of chalk to show the way. Not too pumpy but quite thin on the feet at times and very fall off-able! Brilliant.

Managed this today. Superb route. One big pitch
Dangerous Dave - Lead β - 21/May/11 with Dave O

Top rope to finish the day - did the crux three times cos the rope was too loose. Shouldn't have fallen off really as was at the break. First overhang tough too for 5c, crux 6a sequence is quite thin but gear looks good if you are strong.

Did pitch 1 of Prehistoric to warm up.
Russell Birkett - 2nd rpt - 18/Aug/10 with Pete

Came off just after the crux. Clearly not as strong as Cowan yet... Great route!
whistler - Lead dog - 18/Aug/10 with Russ

Fell off after reaching the horizontal break just after the crux when my foot popped of a shit hold. Absolutly gutted. Will keep it as a ground up project.
