Spent way too long faffing around trying to figure out how best to do the arÍte and got to the ledge feeling pretty pumped with really cold hands. Had to sit on a cam before committing to the move into the crack. One to come back to when it's a bit warmer!

Pike - 2nd dog - 10/Aug/13 with Matt Wilkinson

So nearly got this. Tricky technical start (5b), really nice moves, awkward rest, then pumpy top section. Would have probably been ok if cam hadn't moved and opened, pumped out retrieving and replacing it at bottom of crack. Committed immediately to move into crack after short rest though, great move and easy from there.

On Tom's gear after he backed off. I think the very first move is probably 5b but can be avoided on the right. The meat of the rotue is softish HVS 5a.

First HVS. Tricky start, and a hard pull into top crack. Good gear.

Harder start than I had initialy thought! Suprisingly the first time I actually seriously attempted it I got it though! Got a right hand on a good hold, left hand on the high poor hold, step up awkwardly then right hand up into really big jug and walk upto main roof. Placed gear from a really awkward position, sort of lent over a block fiddling with gear behind me, placed 3 pieces, could easily get more so basicly can be as safe as you want! Sharp layback and left hand up onto half decent hold in first main break, then finish easily. Basicly just one sharp pull and its all over! Nice climb though!
