badgerjockey 8 Sep, 2018 Lead dnf Fantastically positive and slightly bold (tiny gear) face climbing to the overlap where there is plenty of bomber gear and a semi-shite peg. Unfortunately started raining by this point and the flat hand holds for the burly rockup were squelchy and frictionless so after swearing and going up and down four times I gave up. One for next time! Great moves too.... Dropped my knife so there's a petzl spatha on the pedestal ledge if anyone wants it!

Ghost 23 Aug, 2017 Lead O/S Sparse on gear but you can hunt just about enough out. However, holds are generally super positive. Crux at top needs a powerful, aggressive approach. Need to have a good head for this one! One of my faves!

jsmcfarland 31 Aug, 2015 Lead O/S E2 for how poorly protected and run out the route is. I basically solo'd up to the mini-ledge before the roof, placed a superlight offset the size of a large matchstick, then got some absolutely bomber gear in the weird undercut pockets before the crux. I was mainlining on adrenaline and fear by this point. Clipped the crap looking peg just to have 1 more quickdraw on my rope. The crux is totally different to the route and is actually a bit of a relief having huge jugs to swing around on, though the moves are pretty hard. Complete sandbag in the guidebook on what is actually a pretty dangerous route. Wouldn't recommend to anyone unless they have a good head and are totally solid at sketchy E1/E2. That said, it is good!

James Oswald 20 Sep, 2012 Lead rpt A scary ascent. Upon getting to the belay it began to drizzle incredibly lightly. Began climbing quickly to get out of there soon. The juggy 5a wall started to get wetter as the rain increased. After getting a stack of reasonable RPs in I downclimbed but as I did a hand slipped off a wet hold. 3 RPs held me, the shit one fell out. It then stopped raining and I got on with it, albeit quite gripped. The moves through the roof are burly and hard for 5b. Tough climbing, leave an ab rope in place to aid the ascent of the horrendous loose slope. Was glad for colin lowering a loop of the ab rope down to us. Much better to ab into than walk across from around the indy 500. Super route.
