Two falls (pump and flailing due to nerves). What an amazing, amazing route!

Awesome! Like a mini pancake flake in the peak :)

In the rain, pumpy and couldn't make the very last move to get the top, abseiled off to retrieve the gear. Probably a good thing as the top out pulling on heather and wet grass wouldn't have been fun

some good thuggy laybacking, definitely worth a star or two. The topout is quite steep shrub pulling though.

lovely lay-backs, but quite a hard move getting onto the ledge (not using the tree). Felt tough for VS.
