myrddinmuse 16 Sep, 2018 TR dnf Glad I tried this on T/R since I'd have probably died on lead. Tried and tried to figure out how to reach over to the (loose) jug. The small roof on the right was wet but I'm quite sceptical as to it's usefulness, truth be told. From the first little spike it was quite straightforward. One to come back to in the proper dry I reckon.

Tom Pillow 4 Apr, 2016 Lead RP first E5. I did the moves on top rope first then led it. Used rucksacks as crash pads. I have no experience of this grade but it might be soft? maybe E4? however if you muck up without pads you will break a leg. Fun moves, good route!

kyaizawa 11 Jun, 2015 Lead RP Started the day intending to climb Scare City, but bailed rapidly. Decided to work the starting moves and do this instead. TR a dozen times or so, until clean on a loose rope, before leading above a couple of pads. First E5 and first route I've properly worked on, so very satisfied!!
