Had issues with finding the beta, got it clean and after 3 goes. Joe got it in 2 with a hard accidental eliminate variant

JoeFoster59 19/Mar/17 Lead RP

Fell off on my first attempt got it second go. The crux is easier for the tall and once you know where the good hold is. On the go I got it on I messed up on the lower wall and ended having to match a terrible crimp. Good route that keeps interest up. A good day despite it mainly spent shower dodging.

Kamikazeclimber 19/Feb/17 Lead RP

A nice line that gets easier after the crux.

Use the LHS crimp match, go up to the side pull with the right up to the nice hold with left and match.

Chuffed to do a clean onsight of my first attempt at a 6b. Crux is getting from the second to the third bolt. Easy going after that.

Top roped from Latrec (on the right side). When at the top we discovered that one of the 2 bolts forming the anchor has fallen. Be careful when leading.

Leo Woodhead 29/Mar/14 Lead O/S

Average route with a tricky crux, other than that fairly straight forward.
