Ethan - Lead - 24/Mar/12 with Ted, Ed

found the initial arete ok but got done over for height (and/or ability) crossing for the flake. Gave up as a bad job after 3rd GU effort.
Ram MkiV - Lead dnf - 08/Feb/11 with sam

Arete was OK but took several attempts before I got the moves to the flake.
kingholmesy - Lead dog - 2011 with Andy S

Had another go on this the other day (July 2014) - seems the top mono crimp pebble has been snapped in half making the top moves harder and involving a three-finger-tip claw sort-of-process. This makes it a quite a bit harder to finish compared with before.
