MEGA! seconded it last year and had a quick gri gri session last month and it felt desperate! seconded up seams the same and throwing the rope down it got hooked on the spike by accident so though i'd give it a good really didn't expect to be topping out clean! hardest lead to date

Tom.Priestley - 2nd O/S - 16/May/15 with Scott Quinn
onsight without a pad to the spike & above the bolt, slipped off on an easy move...stupid, couldn't believe it I deserved to finish it clean after the emotional turmoil of the run out to the spike...which I found the hardest bit! probably 5c and not as easy as you would imagine, the 6a crux is easy isn't too bad if you have a long reach

good movement BETA = go slightly left at the start good side pull then move to the ledge under the spike. there is a good jug in the overlap.

Came within a meter of the top on the onsight attempt:( Climbed the run-out to the spike without difficulty only to have my foot randomly slip off 1 move before the finishing holds.
Went annoyingly easily on 2nd attempt.

Foot slipped right at the top! So annoyed to blow the os. Lowered down, pulled the rope and got straight back on it. Feet were painful but its not that hard - really no excuse for falling off it. Lovely route, such character

Got to a hard move below the spike twice and chose to down-climb both times. Wasn't certain, and the consequences seemed high! Will come back for this with newer more technical shoes. Shouldn't bring the trad shoes for slate really. The onsight is still there for the taking...
