Tom Redwood 1 Jul, 2018 2nd dog Dogged is an understatement, borrowed a clip stick, should have top roped, very much not my style. Need to do a lot more of the particular awkward style of limestone found on some of these routes. I think a face climb would have been much nicer to push my grade on too.

Mike505 1 Jul, 2018 Lead O/S Good moves but the line isn't always clear i.e left or right of the arête, meaning you had to feel for the path of correct resistance a little, I spent most of the route on the left and it didn't feel much harder (if any) than 'Riding the Bullet' on the right hand section. Certainly less technical but probably more sustained.

stp 7 Sep, 2009 Lead O/S Spoilt by the closeness of the adjacent 'Resovoir Frogs'. The bolts and climbing on these routes is only an arm span apart and the routes seem to share the same holds. Limestone can be climbed up almost anywhere at a certain grade so it behoves new routers to not be greedy and put up new routes too close to existing routes! Overall the rock is very good and the climbing quite unusual and technical. The guys who did it before us said it was more like 6c but it seemed quite hard to me. Not sure what to grade it. For the crux I had my L foot on a big hold on the adjacent route. Is that allowed? Is it cheating? Certainly not if done before the other was put up. (PS Use long draws on the first 3 bolts to avoid rope drag)
