Very pumpy route that looks like a cakewalk from the ground. Gear is good but a little fiddly (big cams) and the crux of the last few feet before moving around the arete is seriously hard work. Amazed it only got 1 star in Eastern Grit, what a route! VS 5a in my opinion

benlatham07 - Lead dog - 28/Sep/14
Fell on the moves before the arete, seems very hard for the grade, but on the plus side I managed to retrieve the previous team's stuck cam when cleaning the route after taking a lob onto it!
First lead fall too, at least thats out of the way now.

Not easy! Hung around for a while on the top section trying to extract some stuck gear so by the time I tried to finish it I had run out of juice. Very nearly got it but hand slipped off just at the step off into the vertical crack and took a long swinging fall! Thnaks for holding it Claire, at the expense of grazing your hand.

I tried to lead it, thought you're meant to go straight up the arete instead of traversing into the crack, so was climbing way too high and some silly moves later took a massive fall from the arete on a #1 cam. Seconded it fine afterwards, irritated that it would have been an onsight lead had I read the guidebook a bit better...

I had 2 falls, both times being tempted into going to high with my feet due to the undercut hand holds - stay low, jam and hope you get something for your feet as you make the move round the corner ;-)

Fantastic route. Nightmare ascent. Fell off once trying to clear a jammed nut. Could not get back to the nut - lowered off. Climbed back to the nut. eventually got it out. Then slipped off doing next move swung onto the crack next to it just finished that route missing half a metre of the route.

Great climb - alluring line, great jams, superb protection and not strenuous. Not sure what all the fuss is abut the step around the arete? I found it to be fine - good jams and a nice bridge across to the slab on the far side of Sandy Crack. One to do again and again.

I didn't really realise quite how 'jammy' it was going to be, nor how tenuous the foot holds would be when I needed them most. The jams felt solid enough (I still have most of my skin, so I must have been doing something right), but moving between them proved too hard and I ended up slumping onto my gear a couple of times. Quite frustrating, definately more jamming practice required!

Should have listened to the advise on here about this climb. Really nice but getting round the arete was nails! Spent too long on first try and came off, and was then too pumped to do it on my next try! Backed off due to being too pumped, chris lead it, but did have 1 fall at the same point!

pog100 - 2nd dog - 08/Sep/07 with Reaver2k
Almost died on this! Ok, not quite but by far the hardest lead I have done! Had done before and was climbing well that day, pushing VS so decided I would give this one another shot! Everything was fine, up the easy starting holds and along the crack abit. 2 relatively bomber pieces of gear in, then for some reason started thinking irrationally! Started worrying about my Dads safety when he was seconding! Big mistake! Ended up on the quite blank part of the slab trying to fiddle in a nut! Very fustrating because I could feel my energy wasting away from my arms! Eventually got a piece in (took a long time, kept getting wrong gear) did a hard and switch on jams (wrong sequence I think) and quickly rushed right a couple of feet so I could get my leg up and feel abit more secure on an ACTUAL foothold! quickly slammed in another cam before going around the corner (in a very stenuous position). Got round the corner with relative ease and onto the nicely angled slab on Sandy crack! A thank god moment! Couldn't reach over the top of the chockstone so had to throw the screwgate on the sling over the top of it (which much failure again) then a quite strenuous but not too technical difficult topout! At the end I was fully pumped and realised my mistake, should have powered through the move without good footholds and got straight up onto the corner rather than trying to place gear in a strenous position to only save myself 1ft in a fall! Think I will be back AGAIN for another attempt at this, still not happy with myself but atleast I didn't fall!

Headpoint again, Frank preplaced gear. A brilliant one to check if any jamming skill had come to me! Something clicked abit on this I think, absolutely beautiful jams, tricky feet placements, only dimples I could find were very sandy nearing the end of the slab. Almost fell, slammed in about 3 very quick jams, a high foot, wrong sequence so wriggled round the corner onto the crack and awkwardly regained my balance. Crux was easier than Quien Sabe? in my opinion. Final moves quite a struggle also, but chockstone deffonately helps.
Would be alot scarier if I wasnt just clipping quickdraws, especially the crux final moves of the curving crack onto the other wall. Ripped up hands, but hands were so numb from the cold it was hardly noticeable. Got to the top absolutely buzzing about the quality of the jams.
