This pic by any chance ;-)
yes that is the one craig ... he needs to bring back the beard ...
And this one too!
Only one way to find out ;-)
It was looking nice and dry the other day so no excuses.
F*ck knows. All I've ever got from that route is gritstone grazes up to the armpits !
too late, but I faced right as it looked like there were more foot placements on that wall (opposite to how I've done the Peapod every time and the photos above). Was amazing, wanted two left arms and my white shoes were green at the end. good times :)
If it seems easy this time go for Blue light's Crack :)

Didn't see you on this this evening, I did the route around tea time. I got up it OK, but found it shitty, horrible, and not in any way fun, precisely as I expected. Of the big three HVSs I think it's probably technically the easiest, although Fredie's is probably an easier route as while it has a very hard move at the start it's not sustained.
He bottled it.
The walk up killed him.
Other excuses were used too

I faced left and back and footed it. I remember that the main problem was over-coming the friction on my back to move it up the wall. The rock is so rough that sliding up isn't possible.
