Adam Booth 1 Jul, 2017 Lead RP Amazing! One of the best 7b+s in the area, into a perfect technical headwall. 27/Jun Lead dog with Glyn Hudson 19/Jun Lead dog with Glyn Hudson 17/Jun Lead dog with Ramon Marin 24/Aug/16 Lead dog with Rob Ierson Reacquaintance session... and tried again on 29/08/16 - struggling with stamina so the move through the roof feels hard after GC. However feel more solid on top move this time. 07/Sep/15 Lead dog with Ed Booth Two tries feeling tired and then one final push where I fell off touching the hold from the rock over. So close! 04/Sep/15 Lead dog with Ed Booth Fell off the rock over at the top 3 times! 26/Aug/15 Lead dog with Ed Booth New high point - touched the second left hand hold on the headwall, just before the high rock over move. 17/Aug/15 Lead dog with Ed Booth Only had the beans for one decent RP attempt. Fell just above the GC lower off. Probably not that sensible trying it the day after bouldering! Should go ok when feeling fresher. 05/Aug/15 Lead dog with Ed Booth Couple of plays learning the moves...

Glyn 27 Jun, 2017 Lead RP Fantastic! A 3* extension to an already great route. Amazing final sequence. 2nd redpoint in good conditions after 4 goes over two other sessions working the moves.

Ed Booth 5 Aug, 2015 Lead RP had heard it had had a couple of ascents, so got on it. Great route, easy to middle 8a I think. 3 star.

Ally Smith ??, 2015 Lead RP Felt fine on RP, using the right hand beta. I certainly struggle to think of an easier f8a on Yorkshire lime, so i suggest everyone fills their boots before the inevitable downgrade....
