Hidden - TR O/S - 16/Aug/15

Got to the second clip, chuffed with that as I haven't even tried 6c yet! Should be able to red point the rest of the route given enough effort

easy red-point found getting the 2nd bolt the crux some nice high steps & mantels.

Dogged to hell. Would be a good redpoint tho.

Retro flash. Tried it a while back but didn't remember how to climb any part of it. Hard for 7a but felt much easier than last time.
dswansonlow - Lead RP - 08/Sep/14 with TC, Darren McMaster

Retro flash. Forgot that I'd done this clean on top rope. Didn't remember the route and probably climbed it completely differently anyway. Great moves. Hard for 7a I thought, maybe soft 7a+?

Got to the second to last bolt but was completely pumped and couldn't stand up on the ledge.
shed_hed - Lead dog - 19/Apr/13 with Dougie Swanson-Low

Jumped back on this after Dougie led it and got it clean first time.

Like a tall boulder problem, crimpy secure climbing with a satisfying top move, wicked!

Retro flash. Yet to fall off this one!

Another project
Cardi - Lead dog - 20/Aug/12 with Dan

Amazed to find a properly bolted sport route on the slate. About the safest route you could hope for. Excellent face climbing to a good rest at half height before a reachy finish. On-sighted on top-rope then led 1st go without falling; I should have just led it...damn!
Dan724 - Lead rpt - 14/Jun/12 with Dan Ely

good, crimpy climbing
willoates - Lead O/S - 12/May/12 with Jimbob, Iona

Hidden - TR dog - 03/May/12

Very good.
zero six - Lead β - Apr/12

Fell by penultimate bolt, as I'm a shortie! Funky moves all the way up though and hard at that! 7a+ for shorties? Good effort on the onsight Al!
Duncan Campbell - Lead dog - 25/Feb/12 with Scooby!, Mason, Ben Alsford

Almost as if someone 'set' the route?? Great movement, albeit a little reachy, particularly at the top. 7a+ perhaps?
