Actually misread the guide and thought I was on a different route. Started via Robin Hood and then traversed into the face. Felt bolder than I remember.

with Hellen
Lancer 18/Apr Lead O/S

A really nice route. Found the bottom flake section easy, but stepping off the slight "ledge" and onto the face and upwards was harder as the gear is few and far between from then onwards. Slopey and requiring careful and positive footwork.

Not sure where the 5a move was supposed to be, maybe it's harder for the short, but I'd give it HVS for the slab, which had a few run-out moves. Small cams required.

charley 21/Mar/12 Lead O/S

Really nice, runout sloper climbing. Kept hoping that the next break would bring better holds and much needed gear. They did eventually but by then you were practically at the top. Felt bold but after the hard move getting established on the slab, was quickly able to just focus on enjoying the climbing (didn't stop me trying to find gear placements and moaning about the runout though)...

Started up this one but got midged off. Doesn't fill you full of confidence on a tricky move on slopers when your belayer is more interested in keeping the midges off him than belaying and tells you you'll have to shout when you're moving because he can't look up!!! Discretion being the better part of valour I stepped across and finished up Robin Hoods Right Hand Buttress Direct.

Tithe Technique 22/Jul/11 2nd dnf

Ange started the climb but I was completed covered in biting midgies and advised Ange to climb the crack next to this route just to get it over and done with so we could make a sharp exit off of the crag.

Keir led but felt direct route wasn't protected enough so moved further left before coming back right and finishing at correct point. I started well enough but let slip on the right leg move up and over the overhang (pretty sure my right hand fingers slipped out of the crack in the flake) - gave rise to my first significant fall ~ fortunately without incident as I swung down to my left and harmlessly below the overhang. Succeeded on second attempt by ensuring it was more of a right sided layback!
