Blod 21 Jul Lead O/S Getting quite green, couldn't use smears I'd have liked to, just enough good jams to get up to the first ledge. Good line, thought it was tough.

GermanAlex 21 May Lead O/S Nice route on stonking jams; lower end VS I thought (somewhat affected by a recent visit to Black Rocks). Viktoria promised a pint if I placed all her (new) WC Rocks 11-14, so I did. Take a bit of getting used to, but I can see the potential. Crux is finding the route.

Reaver2k 1 Sep, 2007 Lead O/S Was really happy about this, when I got to it I was sure I was going to fall but it looked like a pretty safe route to take a lob on! Very slippery and rather blank start for your feet, with two solid jams. Eventually you can move your feet up to the rather worn footholds and get a bomber jam in the back and work your way up to the green ledge. From there up its really quite straight-forward. I used the tree as it was there to be used although not essential! First Matt had a jab at it, avoided jamming like the plague and unsuprisingly fell a number of times! Then Dad had a go, dogged a couple of times but eventually did it pretty much clean which I was glad of as he did it without floundering! And did the rest with ease. Then Matt had another go, and did it clean, and with only minimal use of jams somehow! Was very happy with it once he had got up unsuprisingly! Really at my limit of jamming on this one but really enjoyed it. Hardest 4c I have done on lead so was very glad to onsight it!
