I found one of the hidden holds, but rather than bring the grade down to HVD as promised by the guide, it just brought it down to HS 4b! Presumably there are others I didn't find!

dmaldonado - Lead O/S - 30/Oct/10 with Sam Jones, Tom Withers

Tried to lead, could not get past the crux, seems like you have to make two big moves with not much in the way of holds. Backed off and let Mick have a go, he went up the slab on the right which was still tough. Seconded up the right hand side.
Neil Rodgers (PCC) - 24/Oct/10 with Mick Sissons

Hidden - Lead O/S - 20/Oct/10

Great climb to finish a great day. Requires a little oomph to achieve success.
Hammy - Lead - 13/Oct/10 with Tom Ambrose

Attempted to leave the inverted V a few times but couldn't do it. The gear was good, but hitting the ledge seemed too real a possibility. Ended up using the breaks to the right to skip the crux, which was delicate and maybe just as scary in the end. Seemed harder than Right Twin Crack (VS 4c), which I'd led previously without trouble.

A tricky mid section, easy to place gear into the hand hold. Went slightly right to clear the crux.
