The top crack was trickier than expected and the top out a bit graunchy.
Jimbo C - Lead O/S - 02/Jun/13 with Chris, Will

very greasy, didn't enjoy at all...
charley - 2nd O/S - 01/Jun/13 with JackD, Ange

Slipped off on the hold on the bulge. Gutted as I was doing well. Loved the climb even though the others all hated it. It has some beautiful little moves on it and the crack was great.

Really greasy, and a bit damp in the upper crack. Pissed Fizz a few months ago but found this tricky, probably due to condition. Poor route.

Started up fizz, couldn't make the reach between the pockets so finished up this, quite a hard top out.
SGD - Lead - 15/Jul/12 with Vicky Holmes

As an escape from fizz. Deserves a star for the start.
rich_hw - Lead - 04/Jun/12

Steep learning curve on start & came off twice, but top was great fun.
NB Pixel - 2nd dog - 13/May/12 with Max

thought it was a VS - more of a Font 5+ boulder problem with a VS tagged on top
