missed the lower break for feet and slipped off making a lunge for good holds. much easier when I saw what I imagine are gear placements for crypt trip.

First route of the day. Vince lead across the hand traverse only to fall on the last move. Pulled the ropes through and I re-lead it clipping/resting on his gear. Very sustained!

A good example of an HVS that feels harder than many E1s. I got very pumped and fell at the end of the traverse. Make sure you warm up well before getting on this. No really hard moves, but many of them and very little rest.

Found the first few meters hardest in many ways and was pushed physically. Placing the gear uses up a lot of energy and unless you are tall there isnt much for the feet(tall can use low footholds on first section my second said).

Ben didn't fancy the traverse, so I filled in. Aparrently I would have taken a bit of a swing in a groundwards direction so maybe he was right.

Still desperate, 3rd attempt at this route in total, its so hard. Could have made it a bit further tha npreviously but Neil had rested on a nut in the same place I have done twice in the past, and I ended up sitting on the rope to get it out. The nhad to have a nother rest at the very end of the traverse though, struggled ot get round the arete. Very unfit at the moment.

no desperately hard moves but sustained 4c/5a all the way and no rests at all, uber-pumpy. I had ot have one rest where it crosses Old Friends (the same place where I stopped and gave up 10 months earlier). Top-end HVS.

I should have been more considerate when I lead this - I didn't put much gear in the traverse, which was rather a problem when my 2nd fell off! :( Eventually had to ab for the gear.
