No guidebook, thought it looked nice, began direct and didn't have the right gear to wiggle in behind the flake (good time to discover your rack is incomplete), so traversed back and went up round it. Found the route in guide afterwards, shame I didn't go for it on the direct but would have been a ground fall if I'd failed.

Bottled the lead at the creaky flake. Can you reach the sideways nut? An easy pull up and then a long step to the right gives a poor nut in other flake. One more move to a bomber nut

Didn't want to put any gear behind the flake anyway, bends when you lovingly caress your fingers up and down.

charvey 15/May/14 Lead dog

Climbed up to the hollow flake and was freked out enough by it to downclimb and rest on gear. after a few minutes to compose myself and some encouragement form my belayer (thank you Alex) set off through the flakes and enjoyed the climbing. I led the hard section without rests so I'm happy enough with the style, just not with my cowardice.

I found this a bit of a let-down. The start is a bit difficult, and its not really clear what the 'right' way is (but I don't recommend the L-R toe traverse mentioned in some guide-books, and whichever way you goes is hard to protect. But - after leaving the break and getting onto the flakes, it turned out to be disappointingly easy all the way to the top.

Really fun climb with a lot of variety. Tricky reachy traverse in the middle.

mullermn 21/Apr/12 Lead RP

Semi drama. Got to flake for traverse and was totally out of position and started to get the nerves after pondering the fact that it was my belayer's first time belaying on double ropes! Placed a cam semi blindly behind the flake and sat on it very gently, asking to be lowered. Got a few feet down before a little jerk from my partners belay plate caused the cam to pop and I fell to a nut in the crack below the flakes. Wound up standing on the starting boulder next to my surprised belayer. Had words with myself, got back on it and got it. Traverse out right felt very bold in the absence of the promised solid nuts!

chickened out of the lead as was not confident about a cam behind the slightly mobile flake, but looking at it from the ground after could see the lower gear (nut) would still have been ok to protect the traverse! which was what my buddies were trying to tell me...
