Repeat placing the draws on lead. Quite a lot more thought provoking than in the sport style.
astridsoutham 31 Mar TR Alkis' project. Wanted to see if it was as hard as Espoloa nombrada, but actually the moves are much less technically hard. It's very strenuous, but I think it would go on lead. Maybe next time. Also I forgot my pinks in the car, so did everything in Pythons and I genuinely thought I'd pulled something in my left big toes. Don't forge the Anasazis next time, you moron.

The lanky man 3 Dec, 2018 2nd O/S Felt so desperate to me on the lower half, after almost every move I was amazed to still be on, but that is the nature of slab climbing! Several high steps putting a lot of trust in my feet, and using my lanking abilities to the max. Psyched to have climbed it first go, despite such cold fingers! But will be a different game entirely on the lead...

Misha 17 Oct, 2015 Lead dog Had a got at this at the end of the day after Ian led P1 of the Quarryman and I had a go at top roping it. Thought it would feel easy by comparison but the crux still proved to be pretty hard! The first two bolts are cruelly positioned as you have to make a hard move or two to get to both of them and I reckon you'd deck going for the second bolt as you have to get right by it before you can clip. That certainly made it feel a lot more trad than sport! The moves to get to the bolts are 5c/6a. The 6b crux is thin and took me ages to commit to. Did the first move fine but fell off the second move twice. Got it third go. Steady from the jugs by the third bolt. Great route, should go back to lead it clean.

Duncan Campbell 25 Feb, 2012 Lead β Niiice!! Had a couple of ground-up efforts on this in 09/10 but got no further than 1st bolt. Also had a play on the medium a few weeks back so inadvertantly did the top. Surprised myself everytime I moved past the next bolt and just lucked the 6b sequence before the 3rd bolt. Did the top weirdly as I couldn't remember owt so combining os-ing the crux, with having the draws in and the G-up efforts I'm taking a flash. Awesome, cheers to Al for the encouragement, hero. Unsure on 7a+ or E5 grade as this would be my first of either.

jacobjlloyd 24 Jul, 2011 Lead dnf This is hard! To be expected at the grade I suppose. Foot popped just below the third bolt. THe crux move is desperately thin! It was nearly all over... Feet were pretty sore so I lowered off a convenient mallion rather than carry on for the dog. Awesome route, bring good stiff edges! This definitely felt harder than the 7a its given in the guidebook. 7a+ seems fair to me.
