Break out right from Padansac up an easy ramp to a flake. Bomber peg, multiple tied-down skyhooks, RPs and a slider provide plenty of gear to go up the steep wall and make a very reachy move to gaston and step into the smooth groove, finish carefully up this. E4 for the tall with the current gear.

Anyone to solo this onsight is of the highest calibre of human being. Tried to imagine I was soloing as I did it and scared myself despite knowing I had Mr shunt. Peg currently present which makes the red point appealing despite huge bone smashing fall potential. Solid rock, engaging moves, precarious groove.

Top roped on two occasions and lead this evening, memorable low flying chopper mid crux!

Crux was a bit too hard for me.

Bold little number, went for the onsight and got up to the committing step across to the groove, then backed off... Was glad I did cos on toprope it felt scary and the groove is really precarious, would have bricked it on solo if I didnt know what I was doing. Felt smooth on the burn and buzzing after!

Soloed late in the afternoon just as more flakes of snow began to fall. Despite clearing ice off the approach holds, the rock wasn't that cold. Was never really an ambition to do and despite the good moves leading up to the step across into the groove, I would not particularly recommend it as one worth risking your life on.

We'd seen it solo'd most ably the previous friday, and as Rambo says seeing it had been done recently on the logbooks provided a little impetus, as well as the fact it looked clean ish for once. And HA told me it was easy on top rope and he's shit ;-). News flash - there's a good runner in the flake below the wall - a tied off hand placed peg (think I used a knife blade, but you could try a sabre) jammed in with a nut key wedged down the back (I also scooped out the mud especially using it). If you're capable and half thinking of onsighting this, it's worth forking out your 6 quid and soloing up to check it out first (you can reverse easily) to see what you reckon, before abbing or top roping it into an inevitably successful ascent. Quiet Mind suddenly looks a lot more onsightable too.
