Start to the right of Ready Steady Hook, up the steep wall and head right to a ledge continue up to a Scottish crack finish.

A few silly slips off the start, steady away after that.

Almost eyeballing the chain when I fell on the first go, hardest move definitely the top of the crack. Much easier with borrowed fruit boots second go.

fell off the last tricky move on the onsight lead attempt, just stretching for a bomber placement at the end of the tricky bit. Did it second go, then lowered and lead the route first redpoint.

Fun torquing! I'm still no good at this!

Top roped the first half then lead the crack. Not bad, quite pumpy

Second time on this. Cryos went in all the way to the shafts making perfect torques.

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...

First go of the season. Couldn't remember where the good torques were except that you had to go high. That's right, you have to go high! Scrappy getting the feet sorted but axes were solid. Got a bit pumped so good for a warm up.

Was fine this time. Couple of tenuous technical moves but didn't feel hard.

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!

fell off the first time as an axes popped. No problems second time around.

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...

Got to top hold onsight and leaned on bottom axe which promptly left the crack and took me with it. Bizarrely fell off on several more attempts with same sequence.

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!

Awesome route. Lots of loose rock and muddy cracks. Pinged off the first time when a hold gave up on me. Brilliant!

Very loose in places, gets better with height
