Took ages to get off the floor, then couldn't leave the pocket! Had to jump in the end, would be nice with a pad!

So close on this, got to the large pocket jug with my left hand and a two finger pocket with my right but too high and scary to move up further

Micki tried leading it a few times then everyone put a send train on and bouldered it out.

Tried leading this, faffing about with gear, placed a red BD cam in the big pocket once (ripped it out while jumping off. Tried wires and all as well. Then told everyone else the beta, leading to some ego-destroying fashs. Managed to do it last as a boulder as well.

I'll second Mr K on this one. Felt quite tough for V2.

Needed assistance for some of the moves. Lots of 5c moves in a row. Then 5b moves to top out.

Much effort required and a least 1 jump and one fall having done the crux. Wish I could remember how I did it !!
