olliemartin 15 Jul Lead dog I’m reading The Villain, cracking book about Don’s life. Inspired by Don in his youth I thought I’d be a hero and smash this out as the last route of the day before it got dark, got pumped committing to the big step up... then got pumped traversing the break... then it got dark... then I needed rescuing from the final hold... 10/10 would climb again in Daylight

Anti-faff 28 Feb, 2016 Lead G/U Not easy. First 'proper' lead fall, nearly decked off the crux in front of strangers. Very embarrassing. Pulled the ropes and it went second go. Committing top move but a good hold once you get there.

Simon Caldwell 24 Aug, 2010 TR Backed off on lead as I couldn't commit to the move onto the ledge as I wasn't confident I'd be able to reach the top. It turned out that I could, just, and the traverse off left when copping out was actually harder than continuing. Very reach-dependent, the long-armed would find it a doddle, much harder for Carmen. A bit annoyed, one to go back and lead.
