Misha 7 Dec, 2014 Lead RP This route is my nemesis!!! Did it as the warm up, spent a long time searching out the only decent torque going past the bolt (basically go as high as possible, it doesn't feel great but that's all you get!), then pinged off a bit higher up. Left the draws in as Phil was going to do it but didn't get round to it, so in the gathering gloom at the end of the day I set off by headtorch to recover the draws. Easy start, didn't have the clip stick to hand and the pub was calling so didn't bother pre clipping. Chatting when I should have been concentrating, I pinged off (dodgy axe placement I think) and hit the deck side on. Fortunately I wasn't that high up but my head would still have been a good three metres off the ground. Wrote off the helmet but the head was more or less ok. Got back on shortly after and did it clean, some consolation...

Misha 15 Dec, 2013 Lead rpt This route keeps tripping me up! Went to do it as a warm up and promptly fell off when a torque failed (at least it wasn't a dramatic upside down fall this time). Flailed after that - just couldn't get the torques to hold. Lowered off. Led from the ground later and it was ok though still fairly hard work. The trick seems to be to go past the poor torques above the last hook and stick the axe higher up where the crack widens and allows the axe head to be torqued. Then the same again - and again! That was it for the day - slacking off!

Misha 10 Nov, 2013 Lead RP An axe slipped out of a dodgy torque on the first go, resulting in a spectacular upside down tumble, hitting the rock face with my back and head. Head fine, back sore, helmet a write off (only small cracks but enough). Second go got to the top with a few small falls. Torques hard work! Found a useful hook at the start of the torquing section which enabled me to bypass the dodgy torque and get a better one. Third go got it clean. Not that hard if you do it right. Onsighted it a year ago, must be getting old...

Misha 25 Nov, 2012 Lead O/S Great route, the best of the 5s and 6s that I've done, and felt easy for the grade. Really liked the tenuous torquing in the crack. Done on day 2 of the White Goods Gathering. Apparently it was a bit easier at the time due to a small chock stone in the crack - so Dave Almond tells me!
