maxrose 18 Apr Lead dog Devastatingly close, left it until the last day but ran out of time to finish this one off with a train to catch. Checked out the moves then dropped the same move going out of the crux on all three RP attemps. Final time should’ve gone but forgot a crucial foot placement. Got one for the bag next time anyway

spidermonkey09 23 Nov, 2017 Lead RP Stonking route, one of the top 3 sport pitches I've done. Top boulder problem might be piss if you can reach the toehook, but it isn't if you can't! Fell off at the top once before getting it next go. Pumpy jug ladder followed by a powerful v4/5.

mishabruml 14 Apr, 2017 Lead dog 3rd session on it, came super close today. only 1 fall before the crux and at the crux, the rest came clean and reasonably easy. Sorted out the sequence up to the clip before the jug rest on the headwall which has been a major stopper for me previously. psyched!

Fell on last move, didnt realise there was a jug up left so went for, what i thought was a pocket/thread but subsequently used as an intermediate press. So close again just didnt read it well enough. Big move on the crux v3/4. SICK!
