Rotorslap 20 Jul, 2018 Lead O/S Gear started running out at the top, where I was 'welcomed' by loose gritty ledges and holds...certainly the crux was at the top, the climb totally changed in commitment for the last 1/3rd. Moved to the right to exit (almost a leap of faith), managed to place a small friend in a pocket right of crack for what it was worth. Now I understand the sandbag term in previous comments! So relieved to top out!

Greylag 30 Mar, 2018 Lead dnf As Gareth said below, I backed off on the move leaving the flake to the hold in the middle of the wall. I never reached the sandy gritty ledge. Abbing down to collect gear the ledge was full of crap, even with it being clean it would be sketchy. Clean before attempting. A cam behind the flake and nut in crack to the right both placed by me popped on Gareth so I've got to take responsibility for that! Will live long in the memory!

gar0cky 30 Mar, 2018 Lead dnf Went up on stu's gear (had wisely backed off) committed to gain the upper ledge - off balance groping for some hand hold / friction only to get wet sandy / gritty nothing. Serious fall onto ledge below - just enough tension in rope to prevent disaster. Wished had read comments below!! Avoid or proceed with extreme caution on the upper section.

No obvious places to place gear in the last 1/3 of the route. Couple of horrible mantels to top out, a slip here was definitely going to lead to a 'decking' incident. Avoid

Reaver2k 25 Apr, 2007 Lead dnf Chickened out of this, went part way up the flake and placed a pretty dodgy wire, I had no choice to extend it as the rope drag would be horrible, spent atleast 5 minutes doing this hanging back on a flake gradually tiring myself. Finally began moving right onto what I think was the way to go, the moves looked relatively tricky for me, protection was poor, so I decided it wasnt worth the 2/3m deck out potential and downclimbed - possibly to save for another day. Half proud of myself and half disappointed. In the long run it will give me confidence on backing down on anything I don't want to commit myself to, but it was only a Severe. Not sure what to think.
