Was raining when we arrived so threw a rope down, damp in places and raining on and off during the lead. OS on TR, so led. Good kit constantly after first few metres which aren't too tricky but insecure jams due to lichen and rain meant it was a bit meaty.

One of the best E5's on SW Sandstone. The second half is a lot easier than the first. Had a look at the gear on the way down from nose picker

First ever (and probably only) solo ascent of Thumbsucker at Treherbert Quarrry. After a full day of TR I went back to look at bottom gear and decided to go for the solo, only took me like 3 to 4 hours to psych for it. Without a doubt the hardest mental challenge I have ever faced. If you wondering "What made you go for it" listen to Defying Gravity from Wicked the musical. I would say this is defiantly a 6b tech rather than 6a.

Solid E5,6a. Pretty technical at the start too. Much harder than Nosepicker.
