Archie ball 24 Jun Lead G/U Jibbed first go going up to bolt. Went down second with a tad more confidence, nice climbing.

Owen Davies 23 Jun Lead β Archie backed off on a nut before the crux, I had a go and did it on archie's pre placed gear on the easy start but placed all my own gear after the crux. the hardest move I've done so far at Pen Trwyn, 6b seems fair. Crux - good right hand pocket, get feet high, positive lefthand sidepull, roll over for righthand crimp before clipping the bolt. sustained 5c moves to the top. amazing.

Duncan Campbell 22 Jun, 2017 Lead G/U Ballsed up the onsight getting to the bolt. Went down ok next go. Felt more like E5 6b - hard but pretty safe. The pic in the guide makes it look really runout but it's not.

ksjs 12 May, 2011 Lead dnf Not scary but I wasn't trusting RPs (which are bomber) in less than perfect placements. Tried the move to the bolt about 5 times but just felt very thin and committing. Lowered off due to time pressure :(
