On the 19th April, after a brief inspection on a rope, local trad activist 19 year old George Ullrich was on lead. As you can see, there's a big tree right next to the climb. Some people have been known to put a runner in the tree reducing the grade slightly. George chose not to, and instead used a 'blu-tacced' sideways swedge and very poor skyhook placement. It's just above this hook placement where the crux is, and having done that, you've still got a massive runout to the top. Pretty bold you could say.
