Conor1 23 Jun, 2018 Lead Excellent. Sustained and technical second half. Used both cracks before swinging out right above the last bolt, which felt right. Very top end 5+. Slightly spaced bolts.

Pixie-Andy 22 Aug, 2016 Lead dnf Final section is really bold and more like 6a+ moves. Or maybe the heat had got me. Its easy to move over to easier routes on the left.

bjornbuckwalter 29 Jun, 2013 Lead O/S Topped out using thin holds to the left – quite hard. My partner and I are pretty sure that the intended way to go is with the diagonal crack to the right (as we also discussed with Big Lee; see his comment).

Big Lee 26 Jun, 2013 Lead O/S Great route. Followed the crack leading right at the very top. Unsure whether the route should follow the quartz vein for its entirity to the lower-off. Some of the people in my B&B also tried this route and the concensus seems to be that the direct finish up the quartz vein is possible but not at 5+.

Mark Bull 24 Oct, 2012 Lead O/S Very good: needs some lateral thinking at the top to avoid a blank bit.

Simon Caldwell 17 Oct, 2012 Lead O/S A fantastic route - good line, interesting climbing throughout, with a tricky and committing section to reach the last bolt. Graded 5b (ie F5) in the guide but felt 5+.
