ChrisLeigh19 16 Oct Lead Usually don’t include routes I don’t finish, and couldn’t find the dnf option, but wanted to make a note of it in my logbook. Absolutely amazing climb, and should have got it on my first try-which I nearly did-only falling off the final move before the anchor due to half going off route and half missing a jug. Subsequent attempts only provided a video of lacklustre standard before falling off.

Lynton 9 Oct Lead dog Great route, shame to only get one punt at it, but we were pushed for time to get the last ferry

JoshRawson 9 Oct Lead O/S Absolutely quality route! My favourite of the trip maybe. It was nice to not have a crux it was continuously hard all the way. Awesome climbing too with tufas, cracks, laybacks undercuts and jugs! 7A felt fair to me. Louise and Lynton had a fair bash at it, shame it's not closer to us so they could have another go!
