Droyd 10 Oct, 2016 Lead dnf Absolute joke at HVS - couldn't figure out the move up from the break, found out on TR that the top is even harder and pretty unprotected.

Paul16 15 May, 2016 Lead β Absorbing climb, the top has nothing to hold on to. Forget the gear once you're at the flake, it's not going to stop you hitting the deck. E1 all day long.

Nick_Merriman 10 May, 2015 Lead O/S Small holds to the flakes! Tried fist jamming first to the flakes, but no good... then found the tiny holds for them. Got up onto the flakes to find no more gear! Was the horrified to find above that sloping flat top out - almost fell at the top due to some rope drag, but managed it clean! Very happy, first 5b trad.

Andrew Abraham 1 Apr, 2011 Lead O/S Some interesting moves, almost fell off when making the move up to the flakes, found the top quite exciting as well as my safety seemed quite a long way down by the time I was topping out.
