Personally i think wilkinsons sword deserves more credit than this climb. Found this one only to meet it's grade through confusion.
Tom Brierley Gore - Lead O/S - 29/Mar/14 with Shijing Hu, Maria Brierley

With the clips in - felt a bit on and off through the middle part.
monsteratt - Lead O/S - 23/Mar/14

Had two attempts at this. The first was spent finding a sequence, I found one which was much better than the way I tried a couple of years ago. On the second attempt I had three falls on one move above the third bolt but managed all the other moves first time.
MD - Lead dog - 16/Mar/14 with Mark H

Managed to do all of the moves. Nice and technical.
