Emhfitz 18 Jun TR O/S Had a go and was surprised to have managed it. May go back for the lead but I am a wuss so maybe not

The lanky man 18 Jun Lead RP Warmed up on the arete and a couple of the 6a's which I've done before, then got on this and finally sent it - about time! The slab is ticked.

The lanky man 25 Mar Lead dnf Couldn't work out the top section between last bolt and lower-off. Faffed around too much and feet started to hurt and fingers going numb... Went out left onto Circus Skills to get up to the lower-off, then had another go at top section and worked it out. Will have to come back to get it clean...

JonesE 11 Nov, 2017 Lead G/U Excellent route requiring a milieu of slate slab moves. Continuously interesting sequences that keep coming. Could well be low 7a, felt equally as hard if not harder than some other slate 7a's. Got it 2nd go, fluffed the thin crux at the top first go trying to step too high instead of dancing up the slopy small footholds.

Hempstock 15 Oct, 2017 TR dog Thought I'd try on top rope as a bit out my grade but the first two thirds were difficult but doable the last section there was no hope so desperate unless edge of onto another route

Lewis-Nield 15 Oct, 2017 TR Working the moves in anticipation of actually being able to lead 6c+! Super thin crimps in the crux. Chuffed to finish it!
