shed_hed 18 Jul, 2017 Lead β Absolutely brilliant route! Enjoyed watching Tom making about 10 moves in the groove only to end up where he started! Ended up climbing it differently from Tom (went horizontal in the groove at one point whilst trying to work out how to levitate up it!), but it was helpful knowing the finger lock hold was coming up. Felt like I was going to come off getting established in the groove and going for the jugs but somehow the rubber gripped on the mirror smooth slate.

dswansonlow 30 Jul, 2014 Lead RP Brilliantly confusing. I decided to stop trying to figure it out and just let my arms and legs do their thing. They let me down. It is amazing what having your foot 1 inch from optimum can do on the last move to the jugs. Got it easily after that

ksjs 6 Oct, 2012 Lead dog Superb and very unlikely. Fell from the finger slot. Strange that this gets rebolted yet a duff old bolt is left in the middle of the difficulties.

Dan Hale 17 Jun, 2012 Lead RP An impossible looking holdless corner leading to a desperate lunge for the top. Wierdest route to date. First part of crux section is protected by a rusty old rivet-1980's original?
