Binigo 9 Mar Lead O/S Full value! Low in the grade despite the fairly hard sections, but with amazing climbing throughout. Had a proper battle - was up there for 40 minutes!

Rockmonkey1977 20 Feb Lead dog Fell on the upper crux on the insight attempt, couldn't be arsed to go all the way back up just to get the tick ( not that it was guaranteed). Will come back another day- was a great route though- a real 'journey'!

markvaughan 27 Jan Lead G/U Fluffed the onsight of this magnificent route, got it second go ground up. One of the most varied and best routes I've ever done!! Full value at 40m, with moves that have me twisting in my bed just thinking about them. Awesome

mishabruml 4 May, 2017 Lead β Was not expecting first 7b flash! Watched a South African guy cruise it and got some beta off him. Top is weird, seemed like the the most logical/chalked line was up from the good sidepull in the hole to the jug on the handrail, traverse the handrail left with feet on the shelf to the good hold in the crack and then up and back right to the chains. A mega long pitch with 3 difficult parts but nothing too hard

dprctr 15 Mar, 2015 Lead dog Fantastic route. Managed to figure out the top crux direct on second go. Very balancey despite the steepness. Some grim looking bolts on this. Thankfully the tufa isn't too hard.

shed_hed 12 Mar, 2015 Lead O/S Some nice moves with varied climbing. No really hard moves with good rests in between except for the very last move which is a technical sting in the tail off taken direct, but you can cop out and climb around. It felt like the hard moves were mainly reach dependant (I was at full stretch for a lot of them). I've done harder 7as here. Somehow managed to leave a quickdraw in the tufa when cleaning it which got pointed out later in the day, so climbed up to the tufa and lowered off to get it back.

funsized 22 Sep, 2014 Lead O/S Youpee! Wasn't expecting the top sting. Went for the direct finish, and just about scrapped my way though it! Exciting bolt protecting the tufa could do with replacing, especially as its 4 meters from its closest neighbour

mr_nsglover 10 Sep, 2013 Lead β Virtually a flash. Played around on the lower tufa crux on top rope 2 years ago and couldn't remember any moves. Top crux is very techy if you don't have an albatross wing span, low percentage moves. Very happy to get this one.
