WillDoyle - Solo - 14/Apr/14
Was feeling quite good about this until i got to the gear at half height an saw how poor it is, i tried to place 3 differnt cams only to watch them slide down the rope of their own accord, which put me right off me stride! Managed to back climb slightly and drop onto the grass round the arete, think next time i would just go for the solo, less distractions.

Got just beyond the gear and my hands were too cold and I'd lost psyche, so I backed off.

Had a cheeky abbsail down the route and found one good pice of gear and two poor pieces, a littel regret i just didnt solo it! But i am still in one pice:-)

Lunar25 - Lead O/S - 19/May/13 with Phil Marsh
Top roped easily clean a few times. Much easier than expected so went for the solo which was more gripping but OK. Better to do it this way than to never doing it at all or should I have "manned up" for the on-sight solo.

Done in the dark, a great climb on a top rope and all the moves go OK but absolutely no gear.
Andrew Lodge - TR O/S - 15/Apr/13 with Bob, Steve
really easy and steady to the very last move. couldn't see the move at all! downclimbed from two foot from the top back to the ground. surely that is harder than finishing it?! oops. no mats, friends, harness.
