Utterly brilliant, how does this only get 1 star in the guide? The direct finish is reminiscent of Right Unconquerable, albeit more forgiving.

charley 04/Oct/12 Lead dog

Hadn't done much climbing recently, lost a lot of strength over the "summer" and my leading head was in pieces so tried this knowing I would have to rest but hoped it would sort my head out. Didn't really find a technical crux, has good gear, loads of jugs but it's quite pumpy. Took two goes to do the topout. Arms were too pumped the first time. Think I would of got it clean a few months ago. One to try again..

Second HVS lead. Good fun, suprised I went for it though, had been really ill the previous two days throwing up everywhere, must have eaten a slice of toast between the two days so had little in the way of energy stores! Looked well protected, we couldn't decide what else to do and I want to push my grade a bit. First couple of moves are a stroll, then a little more thought needs to go into getting up the thin crack, delicate but relatively easy bridging. Arm round the flake whilst I placed a bomber big nut which inspires confidence. Decided I had to move quickly because thats why I normally get pumped out and this seemed pretty steep. Right arm up right round the next kind of flake thing, stand up and left hand on a hold to the left of it, get in balance and make a reach for the top juggy flutings. Don't think I was too dynamic but I think I could have missed them. I actually found the topout the crux, I had decided to go direct up and over onto the sloping top, if I had been any further to the left or right I would have been fine but I ended up in the middle! Got both my arms onto the shelf, then tried to shuffle them forward with my chest keeping the friction on the rock. Got a bit wobbly on it, felt like I was going to just inevitably not be able to get up it, but eventually I managed to shuffle forward just enough to be able to hook my right foot over, and once I twisted that over to get my thigh on I could reach the left hand edge. Phew! Matt seemed to find it trickier than me though so no complaining! Sounds like he's been in training!
