robblowen - TR RP - 13/Dec/14 with Jonny

Had to down climb from the crux last year when it started sleeting. Found this quite hard but it was cold and I didn't warm up. Cool route.
deacondeacon - Lead O/S - 03/Nov/14

Amazing onsight from Banksy
Stroppy - 2nd O/S - 02/Nov/14 with Alex Banks

Albachoss - Lead O/S - 02/Nov/14 with Ed

fell off first time reversing the crux copying beta... did it my way first time! The gear is abit necky, big wire is good but it's held in by the RP and you weight the RP first...would have previously trusted the RP but saw many blown out in Yosemite!
ashtond6 - Lead rpt - 02/Nov/14

On Joe's gear
bigdrew - Lead β - 05/Oct/14 with Joe Bawden

really fun. Becomes a bit eliminate at the top to avoid jumping round into brown's crack. But still great climbing if you resist the urge to. The gear isn't too bad. . .
Teappleby - Lead O/S - 03/Oct/14 with Alex McCann

So glad I got to onsight lead this, just not the same on a top rope, obviously needed the fear of falling to get me through the crux on the lead! Great onsight Mark
Gambit - 2nd dog - 27/Sep/14 with Mark Leicester

Previous dogged on 2nd, abseiled down to check out the move and the bomber gear that I'd borrowed then led. Excellent if a little eliminate at the top. (No hands or gear in crack)
Graeme Hammond - Lead RP - 21/Sep/14 with Jen Maxfield, John Maxfield

lcullum7 - 2nd - 30/Jul/14 with Ky Aizawa

First E4 lead - very very happy to have got this clean!! (thanks to Luke for having a look at the holds/gear from Brown's Crack). Mildly terrifying, and thought that the move to get up to the break below the pocket, above a lone ballnut and low friend was harder than the actual crux if only psychologically (struggled for reach).
kyaizawa - Lead β - 30/Jul/14 with Luke Cullum

should have onsighted it but was being a wuss. easier than Strangler at Plantation and that gets 5c.
theomoore - Lead G/U - 28/Jun/14 with Roisin

Technically I fell off but managed to catch myself and not weight the rope.

drysori - Lead - 05/May/14

pipof747 - Lead O/S - 04/May/14

Worked the gear and moves out, then clean on top rope 3 times.
LJC - TR RP - 03/May/14 with Adrian, Euge, Sully, Phill

Second E4, first 6a lead. Crux was leaving the big ledge with poor gear in the first break. Small black alien in the second made the pocket move feel safe and easy.
LJC - Lead RP - 03/May/14 with Adrian, Euge, Sully, Phill

ianjfsutcliffe - TR rpt - 29/Apr/14 with Jonny

My first E4! Crux is well protected, with microcams and microwires, and there is only one hard move. Top is run out but easy climbing above very good gear (5b max?) So, relatively soft for E4? But I'll take the tick anyway!
climberchristy - Lead O/S - 18/Apr/14 with Ben Cole

Hidden - Lead dnf - 29/Mar/14

Attempting to second Ben, but well out of my league at the mo.
treg - 2nd dnf - 14/Mar/14 with Ben

led by Ben, cracking route, think i would've shit myself on the move up from the pocket on lead!

Perfect conditions, the pocket is as good as it looks
Andy Peak 1 - Lead O/S - 25/Nov/13 with Simon huges

First E4 and therefore also first "black spot" on a rockfax. Significant. Had gear beta from Mark, seconded Brown's crack just before for beta and watched another guy fall off the crux just before. How much help can a man get? It worked!

Matt Cooke - Lead O/S - 05/Oct/13 with Matt Marshall

marcduhig - Lead β - 29/Sep/13 with Haydn

wanted to onsight it but had no experience with RP's. Didn't think the gear was good but did it anyway. i'd like to go and do salmon left hand, i feel like using the arete at the top is a bit cop out when you haven;t used it for the rest of the climb.
BillyRidal - Lead RP - Sep/13

the gear is bomber but still couldn't do it. too much leg to fold up! down climbed for another day.

sparkass - Lead O/S - 08/Sep/12 with Andrew Wightman

My first grit E4, but it definitely felt easy for the grade. Probably only one 6a move past the first break where the pro isn't great, then runout but easy climbing to finish. Brilliant route though, gives a bit of a buzz!
Joughton - Lead O/S - 03/Sep/12

Felt ok when I used a decent sequence
Ed morris - TR RP - 19/Jun/12 with haydn jones

Rich Kirby - Lead O/S - 12/May/12 with Ruth

With Shunt. Really annoyed I got it wrong first go. Second go got right foot level with hands before getting the pocket, worked better.
Daniel Heath - TR RP - 30/Mar/12

First E4 onsight on grit. Get in! Crux felt intense but appears to be well protected.

Hidden - TR dog - 06/Nov/11

First E4, and first success on anything harder than E2 in 2 and half years. Semi beta flashed, since I'd seen the pics, knew to bring tiny cams and that sideways RPs were involved, and had also read a right hand/left hand debate about the pocket (from which I took a hybrid solution). Took an hour to protect and suss out the crux, laced with 5 runners so felt happy to commit, and only about E1-ish once you get the second break, thus maybe E3 6a overall but I'll claim the glory of breaking a new trad grade, probably for the final time, one day after 35th b'day.

They were trying to con me into trying to lead this, turns out I don't trust a collection of sliders and RP's as much as everyone else. Took two falls on the crux mantleshelf which I found really hard, and nearly fell on the top arete. One day I'll come back to lead when I'm feeling cocky.

Will Hunt - Lead O/S - 2008 with Bry Lowe

did it with left hand in the pocket. despite good conditions and total confidence in the gear, still didn't feel like the soft touch everyone says it is. Very good sequence though. Was intending to try Trout today but couldn't get going on it so finished up the arete. 16/11/05 previously failed on
