Great route, Stride across to the Ontos jug was tricky but the rest of the traverse was pretty steady. Probably my favourite route of the day.

Took a few looks to commit to the big step over. Worked fine once committed. The traverse is steady and well protected.

first route of the day, this is one to wake up the fear glands. Gibbered my way along the first part of the traverse until I calmed down a bit. The guidebook mentions standing on "the good hold on Ontos". I hope it didn't mean the one right on the lip, but the higher break line. Looks like I may be wrong though :-(

Hidden - Lead O/S - 14/Aug/11

excellent, a tough move to start the girdle (5b), made slightly harder by hot conditions. Think it is worth 2 stars.
Graeme Hammond - Lead O/S - 03/Aug/11 with Richard

SteWatkins - Jul/11

Jim Slater - Lead O/S - 30/Jun/11 with Steve C

Probably the best pitch of the day. Certainly worth more than one star.

failed on the lead :o( went back and did crux on toprope... it's never 5a in a month of sundays, but it is a lovely move... finished straight up, not the traverse.
