Fell on last move then again lower down. E4 seems a little excessive but would gladly have taken it had I topped out!

2nd go after dropping the start. Few pads, the 20+ degrees didn't help.

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

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.
