Treated it as trad, so no mats. Got to the top notch on the fin but sweated off both side of the arete and came off.

between E2 and E3 5c. didn't think I was going to fall off but mildly scary
benkelsey - Lead β - 03/Nov/14 with Alex Mccan, Shaun Humphreys

Pretty sure the E4 is a typeo gets E3 in the guide which is still pretty generous.
Bloke on a Rope - Solo O/S - 05/Oct/14

Definitely not E4! I would say top end E2 5c. Really good moves though, would thoroughly recommend it.
Calum Wadsworth - Lead O/S - 03/Aug/14 with David R, Tom A, Emma

pulled Cal's rope and led it, so had the cams in (not that they're hard to place). It was great moves near the top, but would not have argued if I was told it was E2. . .
Teappleby - Lead β - 03/Aug/14 with David Robinette, Emma Jackson, Calum Wadsworth

Superb problem. Felt E3 5c to me.

Don't think the gear is high enough if you mess up the last reach, but you are only a few metres up.
Ed morris - Lead O/S - 19/Jun/12 with haydn jones

although I'm happy to have got this, I really should have grown a pair and led this onsight. Will have to lead it next time.

Matt Bennett - Lead O/S - 29/Mar/09

Awesome moves - I thought leading was a better option as the gear seemed good and I don't trust Bamford landings.
