Struggled up the tricky bit but shamefully only got the easier last crack on my 2nd attempt :(

Amazing first crack, glorious hand jams, bit of a shame about the walk over to the upper section, but that was good too!

Pansied around on the first crack, lowered down then did it properly. Couldn't get the second crack so split the pitch and Jen got it. Pretty stiff for the grade.

Pity start is so polished, and a tricky finish on final head wall.

Bottom half only, felt very slippy, couldn't make it work and lobbed three times until it suddenly clicked and I went up smoothly. Very polished in the crack.

Have to try again when drier as the the holds on the upper section were full of mud - hung on rope here. Quite liked the bottom section but somewhat lacking in friction for the feet.

Soloed the first section whilst my second was faffing. Top section is solid 5a, glad someone was holding my ropes by that point!

samcook 24/Apr/10 2nd dog

Enjoyed this climb though hard work. Decked out on the first crack as foot slipped from a polished hold. Got up it on second attempt then dogged twin cracks above ledge. Foot jams and big reaches to top out.

pwilkie 20/Apr/10 Lead dog

Fell off at bottom. Really struggled on upper cracks. Would like to try again in future.
