1st redpoint. Nice balancy moves up the arÍte.
Garrouli - Lead RP - 26/May/14 with Helen

lead every move but several rests. This will go, but still need to refine some of the foot positions between 3rd & 4th clip.
hms - Lead dog - 26/May/14 with Garry

Think I got all the moves but came off several times when I forgot bit of the sequence. More confident it will go, but suspect more work required
hms - TR dog - 14/May/14 with Nick

Second RP! (4th attempt in total.) Hard to believe it's high in the grade if I can get it that quickly, maybe it just suits my style, or maybe the heel hook on the little ledge round the arete isn't on? (It seems natural enough.) Either way, it's a 3* route.
Nick Russell - Lead RP - 09/May/14

didn't feel utterly impossible, but will need a lot of work to get foot positions really wired. Only energy for 1 attempt.
hms - TR dog - 30/Apr/14 with Nick

Very good arete slapping. It'll go.

3rd RP. Amazing route in a great position! Techy, sustained and insecure the whole time!

Hidden - 2nd dog - 31/Aug/12

Quite hard, hated it on the OS attempt but thought it was great once I had worked a sequence.
James Marshall - Lead RP - 08/Sep/11 with Pete Shepherd

Very, very good and not a pushover.

Awesome route, great technical and powerful climbing
cornishben - Lead RP - 24/May/11 with Gareth Pratt

Lead on the third session - beautiful climb.
DorsetGareth - Lead RP - 24/May/11 with Ben Sutton

about 6 or 7 goes over 2 sessiions, should have been second go. Great line but found the climbing immensely insecure, glad i got it done today!

Went to see if it was dry even though it was raining, the route stays bone dry even in quite heavy rain. Got it third redpoint attempt, one of the most striking lines at the crag and an awsome route, my first 7b+.
tombeasley - Lead RP - 15/Jul/10 with Barry

got all the moves, just got to lead it now!
tombeasley - Lead dog - 08/Jul/10 with Chris Cleave

Hidden - TR dnf - 08/Jul/10

Quality climbing from start to finish! technical start, then really balancey but also powerful and dynamic moves up the arete. Blew the onsight halfway up the arete, got boxed! Finished it off and worked out the sequence but forgot what to do on the redpoint and didnt have the beans to have another go, bummer! definately worth comin back just to do this, 4* route!
Mike Goldthorp - Lead dog - 06/Jul/10 with Josh

Great climb will need a few more goes to crack it.

Very chuffed, required a bit of freshness! Superb route, excellent line and wonderful intricate powerful moves.
