PandaSUMC 31 Mar Lead dog Tricky! Feels about right for the grade, but a very tough onsight. Looking forward to coming back and getting it clean, there are plenty of options for the short and flexible

Lewis-Nield 10 Jun, 2018 TR dnf Holy moly. This is literally a relentless V6 boulder problem. Had so much fun working out the moves on this. A true project. Powerful, bouldery moves lead the way. Feels 9a. Cannot wait to get back on this! PSYCHED

Widda 28 Apr, 2018 TR dog Psyched to see this was dry after its been wet all winter! Spent the first half of the day exhausting myself falling off below the first bolt with loads of assist. Realised I was doing it completely wrong. Changed beta and it went pretty smoooooth. Up to the 3rd bolt is all nice, then I just couldn't work out how to do the move up past it. Could do with a chipped foot hold or two. Well hard. Top seems fine. Cool route. 0-2,r,2-3,

SGD 17 Mar, 2016 Lead dog Very sustained and nails above the 3rd bolt. fell off going to the 2nd bolt, lowered off and tried again got to the 3rd bolt and just couldn't get to the 4th. fell multiple times (big reach direct?) eventually mangaged a sketchty way out left up to the square hole and fell again. eventually got to the top and was completely bolloxed!!! Great sustained little route but im not sure if I could link it??

ksjs 13 Apr, 2009 Lead dnf Now Fr6c (added bolts) but its never 6c. i fell approx 8 times trying the move after the 3rd bolt. certainly, going direct seems hard. not sure what the trick is? UK6b perhaps?
