Tom McCabe 20/Aug/17 Lead O/S

Brilliant. Hard moves where the feet run out on P1, then perfect sustained, but never desperate, finger-crack on P2. Pitched at the higher sloping ledges which worked out nicely.

My first fair head e3. Lead p1...epic! The crack is amazing though the move for the hug was truly desperate. P2 was great climbing from start to finish.

Second time, led p2 this time. Struggled a bit more this year and my feet skated around a bit. One of the best at the head.

Prebble P1 - feet completely mixed up. Somehow still managed crux. Led p2, beautiful sustained climbing.

Did it in 1 pitch. Super climbing. Rain howled down belaying the guys up, turned into a bit of a rescue. Great route

Did in two pitches with one rope doubled as I'd forgotten to bring the second rope down. I got the second pitch which was the best as it turned out

Fantastic route – one of the best E3s I've ever climbed, with finger to fist jams. Tricky P1 followed by sustained and varied P2. Dave lead P1 with 1 fall (I seconded clean), I did P2.

P1. Best line iv seen at fairhead. Felt comfortable until the crux section where I was in place for a while shaking out and working out the move. Took one fall here as I missed an obvious foothold which meant a higher step up that I just didn't have the juice for. Went straight up it (using said foothold) after fairly easily. 4th full day here so I can't b too disappointed. P2 felt harder for me. Best route to date.

Led p1 (6a), thought p2 was harder overall as it was more sustained. Like regent street but better

Matt77 04/Jun/16 AltLd O/S

P2. What a corker. Sustained 5c on the second pitch but reassuring gear throughout.

In one pitch. Useful to have an ab/rigging rope in place for the belay.

Led as one giant pitch, running out of gear on the way. It was incredibly cold, and I got colder as I climbed! Brilliant route.

Had to have tight rope/aid on both pitches as wet due to continuous heavy rain.
