ralphio - Lead O/S - 25/Sep/15 with Marcin

Not sure if I can claim the onsight but there doesn't appear to be an option for 'Craig gave up half way so somebody needed to get the gear'. A really nice technical route with some pretty cool moves up to the pocket if you go with the right hand!

Rope got stuck behind a cam in the upper crack. Took some careful nut key work to get it out!

One rest before pulling through the overlap. Spanked at the end of a good day. 30 second shake out and did it just fine. Oh well. The route name is a bit of a give-away in terms of which hand you need to work into the pocket!

OliverRoss - Lead O/S - 04/May/15 with Alkis

Went wrong handed 5 times, each time getting the hold above and then downclimbing. By the time I thought that maybe I shouldn't be doing that, I was boxed, so dropped it after getting the crux sequence.

PeteWilson - 2nd O/S - 04/Aug/14 with Dave

Tricky, sustained and sequency, though there are bomber jams post-crux; probably a bit stiff at E1.
kyaizawa - Lead O/S - 30/Jul/14 with Emma Reynolds

Emma Reynolds - 2nd RP - 30/Jul/14 with Ky Aizawa

The holds are all there but they're not that easy to use, pretty sequency and strong, tried it a few times but couldn't get my right hand in the pocket (no way I was getting up without my left hand in there) Tom eventually figured out a sequence but took a fall after the vertical crack cos it was really scrittly and dirty. I can see how it's supposed to be an E1 but it doesn't feel like it.

Crossed through to the undercut. Getting off the floor took a while to figure out!
dprctr - Lead O/S - 07/Jul/13 with Imogen Fish

Brilliant route. Figured out the sequence fairly quickly, but didn't commit and needlessly rested on the rope on the crux. Anyway, led again clean. Great route with really nice moves. Left hand in the pocket, right on the undercut and then match.
gavinpeach - Lead RP - 29/Jun/13 with Simon Piron

Nice route, first 5C for me. i think my massive ape index helped avoid any necessity to use good technique.
The Norris - 2nd O/S - 29/Jun/13 with Gavin

Nathanie1 - Lead O/S - 09/Jun/13 with Louise Hall

Such a frustrating climb. It made me forget how to climb, embarassingly scrappy and I just couldn't swap my hands in the pocket or find a non-strong way to get past the crux. I will be very happy if I get that in the future.

jwpil - Lead O/S - 21/Jul/12 with Deacon

I almost certainly did this with the wrong hand in 'the hold' but it worked. Lovely route packs a lot in for a short pitch and a short climber.

will_benfold - Lead O/S - 15/Jul/12 with Cameron

Although I think Will did what I would have done anyway, it was much easier having just watched someone else deal with the wrong hand bit. :-)

Soft? Did it with some overstrong non-wrong-hand beta, then soloed it with nick's wack cross through beta to get the gear back. Really good sequence of moves.
Oli - Lead O/S - 30/Oct/10 with Nick Willis

Went up to the pocket with left hand and then decided it was wrong so tried to downclimb but had to rest on gear. Went up again with left hand in pocket and put right hand over to the undercut then matched on the undercut - so much easier than trying to reach the pocket with my right hand!
BeccaSnowden - Lead - 24/Oct/10

Had seen Al do it first. Seemed fairly obvious what to do though, just wasn't sure it was possible to reach that far!
