Thought this was the normal start ... apparently not. Crux for me was the slap for the good holds at half-height though.

ferdia - TR - 07/Apr/11 with Andy

Remember it feeling mildly desperate last time I tried it but all good on lead today, the moves are great on the upper section and belayer encouragement work wonders.Temperature was also good which helps on this kind of rock I think.first 7a+.
SeanB - Lead RP - 04/Oct/10 with Tim

UncleMephisto - Lead dog - Sep/10 with Cameron Osborne, Rachel Rosen, Ed Barclay

SeanB - TR dog - 31/Aug/10 with Tim

beegsyboy - Lead RP - 31/Aug/10

Went up to put the clips in and inspect the route and somehow found myself clipping the chain on my first redpoint. Rock was like a radiator so hot and friction pish so rather surprised! Soft for 7a+ or possibly just suited me?

naffan - TR dog - 23/Mar/10

'take grades with a grain of salt' - i.e. disgustingly hard for 7a+ if you are short (5 foot 6") - one of the most height dependent routes i've been on...cool though.
bensendz - Lead dog - 23/Mar/10

In good style after an earlier refresher dog and a failed RP.

Nice. The hard bouldery start is considerably easier once done a few times...but most things like that are I suppose!
