This climb is in 669 logbooks, and on 257 wishlists.

I read a load of guidebook descriptions saying committing lower section, so I took a ton of small wires which I'd hoped would protect this. I found the bottom section committing.

Got really spooked on this. A couple of silly slips at the start totally shook my confidence and wasn't able to compose myself for the rest of the route. Ended up messing up an easy move in the middle and falling right by gear, very unhappy with my performance and would like to come back to do it again in better style!

Awesome route. Shoes literally just slipped off about 10m up, started route again and got 2nd time. Giant slug in crux holds made it a bit harder...a lot easier after the overhang.

Felt harder than two years ago! I'll put that down to early season weakness - second trad lead do the year. Generally fine but got a bit stuck just below the overlap, trying to get stood up on two good flatties - couldn't figure out the moves! Had to climb back down a little for a rest. Straightforward 5b move once I realised what to do. Great route even second time round.

I'm speechless for this one. Emotional at the top, 6 years of dreaming and wondering, a solid year of preparation! Huge milestone and highpoint of my climbing career. Some of the bits i'd heard were hard went dead easy (start & overlap), probably found hardest bit the dogleg and move from first gear slot. Totally totally classic and engrossing throughout though.

cool, first E3! and onsight too! pretty hard up to the overlap then a bit dodge on the flakes! foot hold broke within a meter of topping out but lukily i stayed on! topped out as the sun set so lush view with orange clouds, not a good as pull my daisy, but a classic nevertheless.

metal arms - Lead O/S - 17/Oct/09

Wow! Still can't believe I actually climbed this. I wouldn't bother with the nut key, it's pretty hard to find where it goes (I couldn't) and you just get pumped out when you'd be better climbing the thing. Not too cruxy, pretty sustained and worth the hype. First proper E3. Get on it before the bottom becomes even more polished! Flashed.

Brilliant, brilliant route! It's been on my wish list for years and years. Fantastic feeling to finally get on it and up it clean! (I actually had a very brief go at this a very long time ago (1998), when I wasn't climbing anywhere near the grade. Didn't even get to the first slot back then, before bailing, so I reckon my ascent today is effectively on-sight (apart from the first 2m!)).

Funny really, spent 2 days learning to climb slate, preparing for this. This is the least slate like, slate route i've climbed, big jugs, not thin, not run out, bomber gear, reasonable foot holds, no real scary rockovers, felt rather soft for E3?! Awesome line though, really good fun!

hetaher - Lead O/S - 14/Aug/08 with Jonny

worthy of its status and, despite comments on here, not really polished. psychological crux low down but straightforward; ignore comments about friend 1.5 etc - theres a superb nut placement at exactly the same point (still nice to have the friend though). stepping right to gain continuation crack is technical crux. felt bold above overlap but is steady with good gear available.

Bit upset to second this, but i don't really like Slate, so i thought it was pushing it to try and lead on my 3rd day on the stuff. Franco adapted very quickly, but i was glad i did it clean rather than possibly dogging up on lead. Nice Route.
Dave Warburton - 2nd O/S - 27/May/08 with Franco Cookson

awesome line, awesome experience. set off in the rain, had difficulty swapping cracks, but finally managed it. easy climbing to the roof left only the pull and 'easy' slab above. just as I was thinking of how i could get out of the powerful pull over the roof, the sun came out. Spurred on I climbed over the roof with relative ease, only to be greeted by the slab. only 5a/b climbing,but run out, Dave looked on as I swore loudly about the guide book writer. It was finally done and I was happy i could say I had led a proper E3. :-)
