Peter Metcalfe - Lead - 08/Jul/14 with Karen Jaques

Found this tough; made harder by the fact I wasn't convinced much of the lower middle section (where a lot gear placements are) was attached. Enjoyable moves though.

Missed a crucial good hold to rest on and also used the wire i needed to protect the next section. Got pumped and rested on gear. Gives me one to go back for!
Calum Wadsworth - Lead dog - 16/Jun/13 with Tom, S.O.C

Tried and failed to lead it first route of the day. Callum lead later. Awkward and steep

In the dark, Alice needed a torch to second it! Couple of technical moves 1/2 height followed by great layback moves towards the top. Bomber rock belay.

Not bad, one fiddly move in the middle somewhere and a loose block on it you have to avoid standing on. Really cold and windy though so was happy just to get out of there.

Wobbly block is a bit scary
russasaurusRex - 2nd O/S - 12/Sep/09 with Frazer

Tried to lead 1st, backed off after wobbly block, went up again, couldn't finish. Paul led & then I couldn't even second it clean. Arse!
KeithW - 2nd - 07/Aug/09 with Paul Lucas

Finished leading route after keith started lead and got pumped after placing first three bits of gear (third piece of gear very awkward). So not really a clean onsight.
