murray 24 Jun Lead O/S Oh my god, this route was traumatic! Felt like i was shuffling through the dusty cheese forever. Totally ran out of quickdraws and nuts (you can place plenty, most of them are garbage).. and topped out just before darkness.

Alex Mason 11 Apr, 2018 Lead rpt Led both pitches. A foggy morning so it was very greasy and a lot of seepage on the main pitch. Enjoyed the additional difficulty this allowed for.

Misha 16 Jul, 2017 AltLd rpt Did this earlier this year but Rich wanted to do 'the beautiful red groove' so did this as a warm up. This time led P1, having seconded it the day before for Creeping Lemma - leading certainly focused the mind. Seconding P2 was ok but a bit awkward in places. Certainly not as intense as leading it last time!

Misha 1 May, 2017 AltLd O/S Psychological warm up for the season... Sam quickly dispatched P1, which is relatively solid - I thought worth E1 5b. Then I spent a while shuffling up P2. It's slabby and has lots of in balance rests, with some tricky moves in between (mostly because you don't want to pull on anything too hard), so it's very engaging but never physical. One of he handholds I used came off straight after I used it :-0 Fair bit of gear, some of which was decent. E3 5b/c. Brown and Crew must have had balls of steel.

Duncan Campbell 12 Jun, 2012 AltLd O/S Led p2. Very dusty, only had a normal rack of blue to blue camalots so couldn't make use of the big cam placements, though these would be sketchy due to dusty, cheesy rock. Felt quite sustained, it keeps coming to the end, defo with some 5c as in NWR. Got quite a lot of goodish wires of varying sizes, though due to rock quality or lack of, none are fully bomber. A brilliant pitch, but awkward and solid at the E3 grade IMO.

ksjs 27 Mar, 2011 AltLd O/S Led P1. I thought this was utter class, the top pitch is amazing and totally absorbing when you're on it. Less than perfect rock but decent / good gear throughout, definitely worth bringing 2-3 large cams for top pitch. The hardest bit was gaining where the wall meets the slab but it keeps coming right to the end with a couple of trickier sections. Perhaps it was lack of familiarity with the terrain or because I was seconding but some of this seemed 5c to me. Possibly for the same reasons but I can't understand why this is bottom of the E3s in NW Rock. I can see it isn't so physical but it demands much more than many of the E3s much higher in that list; upper end E3 for me, Alex sums it up well below.
