Dan Hale 23 Aug, 2014 Lead RP Came back after a few months off due to intense frustration, finally sent it first red point today after multiple sessions. Thanks to mark McGowan for the belays and encouragement a couple of months back and cheers for the belay and encouragement today James. My hardest route to date by a long way.

ksjs 20 Sep, 2013 Lead RP At last, not only was today a welcome bit of outdoor climbing after a work related hiatus but it was also the end of multi-year efforts on this. Clips in then a failed go due to cold fingers, done 5 minutes later. Superb! No real feel for grade after numerous attempts but 7c seems fair given how long it took and the fact that brief gos on FM today felt 'easy'.

Wil Treasure 10 Mar, 2013 TR dog Steady moves but easy to get one wrong! Not really climbed on slate before so was quite pleased this felt ok, too cold to attempt a redpoint unfortunately.
