Brilliant route. Lowered off on the first attempt as got my hand sequence wrong (3 finger crimp a few inches right of the crack was useful). Clean after that. Really sustained and interesting climbing throughout. Certainly high in the grade.

Tough going - definitely the hardest of the cracks!

Pumpy! I was ruined by the top! Slipped off near the start, pulled the ropes and did it this time. Make sure you don't traverse across too early!
Jack93 - Lead RP - 22/Sep/13 with Chris Redding, James Thyng, Brad Staniforth

Powerful and pumpy for my small body, and I wasn't feeling it :( Should probably return...

Got pumped placing gear so took 1 rest. Crack seemed to small for hand jams but to large for fingers. Will be back!
Shaw Brown - Lead - 30/Jun/13 with Judith Neaves

Chris Wright - Lead - 16/Jun/13

Thought because I climbed 5b at Gogarth 2 weeks ago I'd manage this....big mistake, totally pumped after 10ft. lowered off!

Neil led. Hard work from bottom to top. Top end HVS I'd say. Slipped off the bottom bit through not doing it right (it is a layback...)

Set up as a top rope. Wow what a good climb. Very very hard work - was panting for about five minutes afterwards. I had two falls. Neil and Ed a few more - although Ed climbed this immediately following Exodus which is impressive.
Alaric - TR dog - 01/May/11 with Ed, Neil

Sustained and the step left is bloody awkward.

couldn't get into the second crack, not that I even tried! A very hard route, it beat me even though I was feeling strong and confident. The only consoling fact was that Ben couldn't do it either. Bomber gear though.
