The stunning arete left of Red Square with hard climbing and limited gear. ***It is now possible to place a cam under the first roof in a placement that has developed from a thin band of softer rock being excavated over time from people trying to get gear in. This protects(?) the crux move which was previously unprotected however now both of the first pegs above the crux are missing****

Amazing climbing from start to finish. Worked the route once on top rope and went for the it placing gears on the lead.

Getting reaquainted, felt utterly desperate today. On the positive, found some additional gear options before the shit peg before the break

2 more clean top ropes, but didn't sum up the courage to lead. productive session as I got better beta for the start and found more gear after the crux and just before the peg. I don't think that peg would hold a fall. siege postponed until spring

After work recce session, all individual moves done but with a rest after each one I think! Very greasy and quite dirty. It begins...

Lower pegs gone. New cam placement's not exactly bomber. Still deck out potential

Cailean Harker 24/Apr/15 Lead RP

Onsighted on top rope, then went for the lead. Felt bold after the crux as the first two pegs seem to have rusted away. Really good but insecure feeling climbing.

Ran out of time for the headpoint - definitely worth returning for!

TR'd a few times in '08-'09. TR'd a couple more times, then lead just as a rain shower started.

Greasy as sin! Felt way harder than the last time I got on it! Still might be a go-er if I'm fresh and conditions are good. Need to harden some of the holds...

Great route. Got all the moves with some rests in between and two worked sections. Pump stuff!

Gutted I dropped the flash going for the wrong hold on the top section. 2nd go. Climbed trailing lead rope and placing gear to. Top section is putting me off big time.

Got it clean second go on a TR. Account open!

One of the best lines about with climbing to match. Wouldn't be amiss at E7 but regardless of the grade its just superb.

Lead after practice in the morning. Had a complete mind blank on the top section and forgot how to climb it but it came together in the end. Birkett is a legend, the start is well sketchy!

good send, the moves and holds are never quite secure, so its good fun. slipped a couple of times, but clung on- falling would have hurt
