spidermonkey09 13 May, 2017 Lead RP First RP. I thought this was closer to 7a+, I don't normally redpoint 7b making so many mistakes on point! Crux not at all obvious but once I worked it out it felt easy. Top half is really lovely, although bloody sharp!

shed_hed 28 Jul, 2014 Lead O/S Very cruxy route but great moves. Initially tired going slightly right at the crux to a far away ticked hold but Dougie shouted up that he thought it went left so I went slightly left pulling some really thin moves. Having read the North Wales Rock Groundup guide afterwards, it seems to describe it going slightly left too. Put the clips in.

ksjs 23 Jun, 2009 Lead RP settled an old score and actually worked out that move (its pretty obvious, dont know why it baffled me so much last time). a tricky onsight but cool moves once worked out - very good. 1st go - bemused by crux and fell about 3 times. sorted this out then to top. 2nd go - done but just about, managed to skip the tiny mid-crux 2 finger edge, slack redpoint skills again.
