Small pulls with big reaches. F ing hard as the crack was verglassed so cams useless and placing gear nails . Took a tumble after I had done the crux when crud ripped through (poor excuse I know) but ended back at belay so ended up doing whole pitch in one hit. Well pleased with myself for getting on it as I suspect it was done when you could jamb cams all the way up.
Dave Almond - Lead - 16/Dec/14 with Graham Dawson

Awesome lead by Dave. Outstanding route.
MonkeyDawson - 2nd dog - 16/Dec/14 with Dave Almond

Led P1, seconded P2. Very good. Not quite as brutal as I expected!
Neil Adams - AltLd O/S - 23/Nov/13 with Andy Inglis

Lead P2, from the base of the crack, nearly off low down. Great line and route.
andyinglis - AltLd O/S - 23/Nov/13 with Neil Adams

Led both pitches.
Greg Boswell - Lead O/S - 05/Jan/11

Seconded top pitch frozen and mostly by headtorch, so not in the best style.
