Lead after Rich backed off. Lots of wind. Made unnecessary precarious rockover after crux (which felt morpho).

Still found the crux move hard and tried 3 different approaches before finally cracking it. The secret is getting some momentum going. A fine route.

Me and Tim Followed Ellie up after considerable debate and to where the route went, the chucking up of additional gear and so Holly tree (Ilex aquafolium) assisted rests! Ably belayed by route consultand and meet organiser Jim Ashton, a grand team effort!

Got confused and went for a prickling in the tree before returning back to the arete. Some oldtimer seemed in awe of my trials, commenting that, at HVS, it was the hardest hollybush thrash on the crag. Each to their own.

Mental! Not as painful as it looks but I made myself acquainted with the holly. Used it as a good foothold. Poor handholds meant I continued traversing to a platform from which descent was easy.
