Pumpy to place the gear - a number 2 cam at the top of the slab, then a great number 1 nut in the lower section of the crack and then a number 2 nut right at the top of the crack. Must remember to place gear off the good holds, rather than tiring crimps. The climbing is delightful, never difficult, just a bit intimidating. Big moves through steep territory to a nicely exposed finish - at least it's exposed if you don't stop to try and place a cam in the top break.

Midgy hell, but worth it. Decided to commit to the run out and not stop until the top, felt like a solo.

Took a big fall and ripped a nut with such force it hit me in the chest, left a perfect imprint and drew blood. A pretty terrible nut below saved me from decking.

The blank mid section seemed hardest for me, or does the crack up the right hand side count?? It was pretty hard without it.

big whipper taken after moving over the lip and top cam, placed blind in crack, didn't hold, luckily nut below was bomber and missed the floor by around 2m so pretty safe. bit of a hassle getting it all back.

GeorgiePorgie1 22/Oct/16 Lead dog

Manage to get to the final piece of gear (just before the final move) and got a cam in, but didn't clip in as I didn't like look of it. It later turned out it was quite good... Had a massive whipper of a fall from just under the final horizontal crack, but thankfully my nut was solid. Rob finished on my gear with lots of rests and then I finished (3rd attempt) while picking up the gear. Great climb, but very dangerous as gear in critical places is quite fiddly so requires a lot of strength to just hang there.

Clisty led, good job with a very dubious cam at the top! Think we went up this all arse about tit, finishing on the right arete and probably missing some juggy holds over to the left. Very pumpy. Would consider leading in the future but when I have got a few more pumpy hard routes under my belt (Flying Butt maybe?). Moves not that exciting actually, but positions are nice and exposed.

Real nice route, takes a bit of thought about body position to reach through to the jugs which gives some nice moves. Very good effort by Remus leading this.

Trefo 18/Oct/09 Lead O/S

Brilliant route with airy, powerful moves. The initial crack seems to be too small for a number 2 wire and too big for the number one. Luckily there was some good wires a few feet higher-but nevertheless a brilliant route.

This went okay, I could imagine getting very pumped doing the last moves if I was leading though, definitely one I will eventually lead as it's not too hard just a bit pumpy!

Went up and down from the rest to the top of the crack about 8 times, fiddling with wires, before committing. I think this was actually the crux section! The top is much easier than it looks, although I note some fool suggests below going up the right hand side at the top - cough cough. Technically, its 5b not 5c. Possibly easier than Now or Never.

bomber in situ gear just below the over-hang. Rested on that, then went for the juggy top. Not too hard, but a big reach at the top for the final massive jug. Didn't bother putting any gear in after the in-situ nute, if I had fallen it would have been big! At the final break below the top you have to come right over to the right, match the pointed jug and go for the top.
