SuperLee1985 28/Sep/13 Lead O/S

Good route, all about the start, which is protectable and just requires a bit of grunt and a high foot. Traverse left after to find a good thread for protection.

Not so much of a tricky start as a bit of a grunt...the holds are all there and they're good holds if you avoid the polish for your feet, but it helps to be able to pull up and lock off. After the first move it pretty much fizzles out which is disappointing.

Pilch 10/Oct/07 Solo

Solid jam, slippery high step then long reach, 4b at best,confidence required to solo the rest

Somerset swede basher 15/Sep/07 Solo O/S

Thought required to protect the 2nd. Saw someone trying this after me and they didnt place gear til the thread, consequently 2nd was swinging off the first moves into the ground. Better to pull the rope up and chuck it down again so its not being pulled over by the gear.

Big pull start with one more move before you can relax and then find it easy as long as you have some smallish cams to protect on the way up

start is tricky due to severe polish on the smeary foot placements. even though first gear placement is sound, once your over that, its got tae be a deck out if you come of the climb is a breeze tho. bisto climb..
