Finished direct from the 3rd bolt between the groove (left) and arete. Makes it more sustained and bold if u don't run away to the aretebarni - Lead rpt - 25/Nov/13 with Oates, luke

About time! Felt much more comfortable on it on lead this time round.

After top rope practice. It felt a grade easier with new edges and an improving head.
dswansonlow - Lead RP - 24/Jun/13 with Darren McMaster
Far more do-able than I had ever imagined. Looks like it will be scary on lead, but will definately be back to get this one properly. Awesome climbing, super thin with some a properly awesome moves

Slipped off at the top after the crux. Got it clean second time.
shed_hed - TR RP - 04/Nov/12 with Dougie Swanson-Low
Came off the crux. Got back on and finished it. Nice climb. Couldn't remember the moves on lead for some reason and apparently I climbed it with a different sequence on lead from when on top rope...
Tried it again on lead again after but came off at the same place.

hard. couldn't stick the moves above the 2nd bolt, feet were killing me. abbed down afterwards to clean the draws and the holds/climbing above don't look too bad. definitely one to try again next time.

Second go ground up, as i fell off it once last summer trying it in my comfy shoes. 7a+?
jacobjlloyd - Lead RP - 18/Mar/12 with Sian, Ben Corbey
Niiice!! Had a couple of ground-up efforts on this in 09/10 but got no further than 1st bolt. Also had a play on the medium a few weeks back so inadvertantly did the top. Surprised myself everytime I moved past the next bolt and just lucked the 6b sequence before the 3rd bolt. Did the top weirdly as I couldn't remember owt so combining os-ing the crux, with having the draws in and the G-up efforts I'm taking a flash. Awesome, cheers to Al for the encouragement, hero. Unsure on 7a+ or E5 grade as this would be my first of either.

Preclipped first bolt.
DafSWMC - Lead RP - 30/Jul/11 with Gareth
This is hard! To be expected at the grade I suppose. Foot popped just below the third bolt. THe crux move is desperately thin! It was nearly all over... Feet were pretty sore so I lowered off a convenient mallion rather than carry on for the dog. Awesome route, bring good stiff edges! This definitely felt harder than the 7a its given in the guidebook. 7a+ seems fair to me.
