kez1 2 Jul, 2017 Lead RP Very bold, the sling placement is absolutely useless, worse even as it is a key foothold, there is gear there but one is low down and would probably just save you from decking, it wouldn't be a nice fall though, the other is closer to the crux but unreliable. Worked the crux sequence a few times before committing to the lead, definitely worth E3 for an onsight attempt as the crux is very drop-able, well chuffed to finally slay this route and prove I still have my headgame dialled, my original comment regarding nick waltons D.I.Y skills remains true.

kez1 20 Sep, 2016 Lead dnf Nick Walton is a bell end, if you are going to deface the rock by taking a hacksaw to it, at least do the job right, a downwards cut would at least hold a sling, the shallow horizontal cut is completely worthless, sort your D.I.Y skills out yoof

Sol Armer 14 Mar, 2013 2nd O/S Very green, little gear also but not too hard, sky hook/ nut key is advised for gear, couple of horizontal cracks for small nuts/ cam half way up. best bit of gear 2m from top nut placement. Sketch climb, fun if you into that :D

Samuel Wainwright 14 Mar, 2013 Lead O/S Use very light quickdraws, the gear is less likely to fall out that way.
