Had led the crux on the International Meet the previous year. Sue had done it before as well but hadn't led the crux and fancied giving it a go so we did it as the last route of the day. Think I found the crux shuffle underneath the roof easier on lead! P2 was enjoyable, mostly fairly easy but airy climbing with a couple of exciting moves on the initial traverse leftwards.

adam 24 - Lead O/S - 12/Oct/13 with Lee Harrison
The big flake at the start of the route is loose. This is the flake that the first piece of gear is placed behind. I'm not sure how stable it is. Totally nailed by this on second. Massively pumped out on the cracks leading to the roof and needed to be lowered off. A first...

smallerrich - AltLd O/S - 11/Sep/13
Great route! Dave lead the first scrambling bit and I lead the rest. I almost blew as I misread the sequence at the P2 crux. Each individual move is 5b, but when they are one after another in the overhanging terrain, there is not margin for the mistake!

Justin T - AltLd O/S - 09/Jun/13 with John Mcshea
Brilliant! Pleasant VS climbing to start with, then it picks up the pace but there's a half decent rest under the roof. The way onwards is intimidating, you have to commit but it's not that hard (there's even another rest - if you have stamina!) and pretty well protected. Great stance at the end of P1 and very happy to get there! Davor led P2 & 3 in one. Some good moves tip toeing cross the slab. With Davor on the BMC international meet.

Still not feeling 100% after being ill got on route anyway. Tim had the frist 5b pitch, and what a pitch. The start was graesy and thought the move after the traverse onto the slab was hard for 5b more like 5c, We did grendal the next day E2 5c I thought that was easier me and tim both agreed that was top end E2. I would of fell off here if leading slumped onto rope o well strugged to get gear out. The next pitch only few moves of 5b but the space walking is also great fun.

Loved it though living in Cornwall meant I'd listened to details about the route first. First pitch was easy but basically worthless gear which unnerved you cos you thought the crux was going to be the same sort of pro :-) Amazing position hand jamming the quartz pocket before attempting the (slippery) traverse (that day anyway!). WAY too much rope drag however having done pitch one and two together. Couldn't get over the is it a slab is it an overhang sort of feeling ! :-)
