spidermonkey09 18 Sep, 2019 Lead RP What a journey; tested me to the limit both physically and mentally. Some of the best climbing you could ever wish to do. Pure joy sitting on Victor's Ledge in the twilight, after over six months of sustained effort. Incredible.

samrad 4 Jul, 2019 Lead dog First day checking it out. Wanted to record this so I can see when my first session was. Bad conditions. Managed to do all moves (in some way) apart from the boulder through the roof. Takes some working out. 2 dogs. - 2x more sessions in the week. Completed the full boulder through the roof 2x and linked the top headwall from just after the knee bar to the last hard move. Maybe time to make burns from the ground and see how far I get.

Ed Booth 3 Apr, 2019 Lead dog Did all moves on the bulge. Did overlapping links, big side pull into last left undercut and fell slapping for tooth, and from pinch and first right undercut to jug. Also did the section from first rest to the hole. Psyched

JamesTurnbull97 18 Sep, 2016 Lead RP Well I did not expect that! First session redpointing, first time I did the bulge, 3 go of the day, 6 sessions. At the start of this year 8a seemed like a huge number, I couldn't conceive climbing 8c at all let alone 5 months after doing my first 8. Just a group of mates left at the crag made it a good scene, such a good feeling to be stood on victors ledge.
