Really hard work, but somehow got there in the end. Strenuous bridging and difficult to work out what to do.
cameron_hall - 2nd dog - 08/Sep/13 with Lee Hermon
bloody hard and my first lead fall. Nice one Joe!

Returned to try again. Worked out a way to jam myself in and take a much needed rest before the crux move that pulls you out of the crack. So so happy to get this one clean. The missing skin on my left hand acting as a nice reminder. One of the best! :-)

thought this was going to be a real struggle but turned out to be mostly very pleasant bridging with one slightly tougher move to exit the crack

Good tough HVS crack climbing. Starting the final traverse gives a bit of a sting in the tail too.

brilliant bridging moves followed by some tough jamming to reach the ledge (got to be 5b!), brutal but essential Stanage tick and hard at HVS!

Wouldn't usually log dnf, but got all the way up the jamming crack, but couldn't make the rightwards move onto the face due to the gale that was coming from the other side!!
