Julian Cooper 15 Jun Lead dog Started to learn how to get through tufa with heel locks. Got the knee bar and worked out a heel hook for the top. Let the red pointing begin.

robf321 26 May Lead RP an absolute siege to get it done today, got desperate at the top as it felt like my right bicep was going to explode. Wicked climb (and sector), surprised its not more well known imo

thebigfriendlymoose 28 Jul, 2018 Lead RP Tough but quality; short but a battle all the way. Awkward and strenuous into and out of an uncomfortable knee-bar, then a hard crimpy finish. Either I was having a "high gravity" day, or a hold has fallen off since it was ever an 7b+!
