Only rested once, as didn't see the nice crack around the arete... got myself pumped looking for something. First 6C

Crux very dirty. Wasn't sure whether to go left or right at that point. Left looked correct but right was marginally easier. Crack and roof above were excellent.

Martin Bagshaw 13/Mar/16 Lead O/S

Not sure I agree with it being 'virtually a slab climb', but it was good. Capping roof was fun.

Dusty footholds in the crux sequence, needed a brush before it worked

Got suckered into wrong sequence on right of bolts, eventually worked out sequence on the left.

Rested at crux but lead through from good ledge. Rest at roof but move quite doable after rest, must remember to keep feet high.

Pretty solid for 6c. The middle section is doable but hard

Worth a star, too easy to stray onto the right hand route though, avoiding what I assume is the crux?

Covered in a layer of dust that kept blowing in my eyes :(

Jonathan Emett ?/Jun/13 Lead dog

hateful painful crux. Couldn't be bothered to do it again. the rest is ok.

Tom Brierley Gore 26/May/13 Lead dog

Could not figure out the correct way to do the bottom, escaped? right, the top is also a bit annoying with the abseil all the way over on the left after a massive overhanging mantle whatever. There is some nice climbing in the middle though :P

Dogged to fk, felt like an E4 6b sandbag. Sketched through the desperate crux "slab" clean after a few goes but confounded by the top mantel.

Bit dusty but good!

At the jutting 'fist', went off to the right to get high enough to traverse back into the crack. Couldn't see any other way!
