That top out was harrowing. The heather is strong, fortunately..! Felt very dirty but not sure if that is it's usual condition

After Ben's OS on his gear. Reminded me of our session on Goose Creature earlier in the year.

Slipped of with a combination of new shoes and laughter. Lowered back down and consentrated next go!

LMS 18/Jul/17 2nd

Really hard!! Top filthy and frightening

climberchristy 18/Jul/17 Lead rpt

Nice to repeat this a good while after first leading it. Top out today was very hairy as the final rounded holds were filthy!

Really lovely climbing defo the easiest time I've had on a route of this grade, perhaps a bit soft but that just makes up for all the horror shows!

On Cal's gear since he'd just done it (not that it's hard to place). Only E2 5c if we're being honest, so an obvious first E3 if you're looking for a really easy one!

Calum Wadsworth 25/Mar/15 Lead rpt

Clean this time, very good route.

Really good!! E2 6A

Calum Wadsworth 26/Aug/14 Lead dog

Fell off a few times trying to work out the sequence. Felt daft to ground up because doing the easy start but for every try on the top would have been very time consuming! Will come back give it a quick clean and should hopefully do it clean now I have the beta... Bit of a poor effort really.

Mike Todd 26/Aug/14 Lead O/S

Probably only E2 5c but really good and bomber gear.

A very good move. Really hard to figure out the best sequence. Matching on the sloper definitely felt like 6a. Ace

Prob E2 5c (altho took a bit of working out!) but a good little problem, should see more traffic.

Did this on a second the weak before so went back and did it on lead. Foot popped so lowered and did it clean. Felt sandy on the day but that might be in the mind when on lead.

Great moves at and above top crack. Just a shame they are so short-lived and that bottom half of route is a non-entity.

Sam Marks 20/Oct/12 Lead O/S

good route, wet exciting top

Matthew Ferrier 20/Oct/12 Lead

Fell off right at the top when everything I tried to hold was damp. Second go I managed to get in a position where I could have easily taken both hands off which made it much easier to tug on the undergrowth.
