It doesn't feel that steep....but this is the view from the top of Valkyrie.

its the next couple of moves that made me decide to move away from gritstone!!

Great photo. Provoked rather unpleasant sensations.. surely worth 5 stars.

In reply to The Pylon King: Why what happened? Did you fall off? Did you get scared? The move after this is definitely harder than the previous few, though the crux is further down.

Is a side runner that high normal?

The high side runner is probably a bit high - but seeing as this was one of 16yr old Kieran's first few extreme leads and I had this 'duty of care: style of ascent' tussle going on in my head, being his supervising teacher - I told him to put it in! (and there is consent to post the pic on here...)
