Like Don, short and fierce. Looked like a hell of a lot of fun, so had a crack at leading it. It was all going fantastic, until I spent too long trying to fiddle in the last nut and got thoroughly pumped. Ended up peeling off, for my first lead fall. Hung around, tried to complete it, but burnt out, took a proper fall, swinging across the crag to end up sat neatly on the ledge. Was disappointed to fail, but quite elated from the fight and sort of pleased to get my first lead fall out of the way. Steve took over, and led up cleanly to the top on my gear. I cleaned the route with some difficulty (well-stuck nut, as you'd expect) and then finished the beast off. Will have to go back sometime and do this properly. Three stars, for the fullness of its character.

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.

Whillans' only route at Brimham, what? Bit twitchy moving up to the shelf at the top.

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.

Worrying top out but there's a decent hold if you look for it.
