Dogged and stick clipped on the 25th November and a few other days working out sequences. 9/12/17 closest attempt to date today. Through crux both times and through second hard section once as well. Forearms simply melted just one bolt from the lower off. 12/12/17 6th go Redpoint. One of the best routes I've done, not my style really but loved all the highs and lows. Brilliant.

Should have onsighted this really but muffed the foot sequence after the layback. Found the slab fully desperate and height dependent, ditto the lock to the pocket. Fantastic line.

Leo Woodhead 28/Mar/16 Lead RP

Fantastic climb that makes you really work for it. Sharp and crimpy to start, then a technical roof, and lay back upper section. Got it on my second attempt this year after trying it once last year and splitting my finger tip.

Very thin climbing for the first 3 clips up a slab followed by jugs and precise footwork, very enjoyable. It probably didn’t look like that from the ground cos everyone else chickened out of it! Best route on the crag though!
