Bloody scary lead, well done Rich, only one bit of gear in and that was too low to stop a ground fall at the top, fortunately the friction is a lot better than it looks
Blue68 - 2nd O/S - 20/Jul/14 with Richard E, James Lee

First E1, got three nuts in at half height, not that they'd have done anything if I'd fallen from the top. Steady climbing and thankfully easy top out.

Hidden - 2nd O/S - 15/Jun/10

First E1, easyish climbing but definite groundfall from last move.
jwpil - Lead O/S - 15/Jun/10 with Mat

Think this is way overgraded. Could get a size 1 nut in sideways which will protect the crux but still if you fall from the finishing moves you might just deck!

First E1! Less steep than I thought it would be so all in the footwork. I suppose the top move is bold but if you can cast the poor gear below you out of your mind then it's an easy 5a.

Straightforward if you keep your head, but definitely worth E1. the only decent gear is just below half height and the crux is reaching he final break, you wouldnt want to fall off (and contrary to the below I suspect you woudl deck on rope stretch). There are a few small micros abotu half height but they are very poor.

thomasadixon - Lead O/S - 13/Jun/09 with Alan, Becca, Lisa and Mike

Great climb, a little scary, would probably deck from the crux, but probably just on rope stretch so would probably be fine. Was a bit timid with the crucial move, didn't feel that secure, eventually i turned my body in the right way and committed and it wasn't that bad. Becca strolled up and blitzed it without a second thought!
