OllieBarker 15 Jul, 2018 Lead dog Lovely moves until the break, then the cruxes begin. Got to break clean 2nd attempt then messed up the first crux so worked for a bit. Tough moves at the top.

Rob Greenwood - UKClimbing 23 Aug, 2015 Lead O/S Always steered away from this one due to it's wandering nature, but with a selection of extended quickdraws it doesn't feel that bad at all.

GPN 11 Aug, 2015 Lead O/S Pretty much onsight: had mega rope-drag at the top so grabbed the chain to clip. Did it totally cleanly after - having somebody remove the 2 rightmost qds helped a lot with the drag. Double ropes would be good as well!

Fraser 12 Oct, 2013 TR dog Seems pretty hard for 7A+, but I've said that before about routes at CH, so will reserve judgement till I've been back on it again. Sustained, high quality climbing all the way.
