Commenting in his UKC logbook he said:

"Get in! First ground-up ascent since it was put up in 1983!, probably the most physically and mentally challenging thing I have ever done. I didn't think it was going to happen before I had to move back down to Yorkshire but it all came good in the end. Has to be one of the best routes in the UK without a doubt, now who's going to on-sight it?"
