Made it to the diagonal crack, moved up that (small cams and good nut) and got my left hand into the high finger jam. Then tried to move left and got pumped and came off. On second attempt, used left finger jam and moved right- far easier for me.

Tithe Technique - 2nd O/S - 07/Mar/15 with Angela Paul, Charley Fell

Really enjoyed this, especially as I backed off it a couple of years ago. Found it pretty straightforward today - the crack isn't as good as you hope for your hands but it's all about the footwork.
charley - Lead β - 07/Mar/15 with Ange, Kev

So chuffed to get this one clean as I wasn't sure my fingers were up to it. Lovely climb and excellent lead by Charley.

FlavioL1989 - Lead dog - 28/Feb/15 with Rob Edwards

Last time I tried this I hung around the crux too long fiddling in gear before trying to do the move and ended up having to rest on the rope. Much better this time! Nice offset nut and a cam in the diagonal crack and then a fair reach to a sinker left hand finger jam. Quite a good HVS really, it should have more stars!

Sec route of the day and my first lead of the day. I put the ropes out thinking I was under black hawk. When I looked back at the guide I seen I was under this. Anyway, had a look hoping I wasn't biting more than I could chew. It set us up for a great hvs ticking day. Brilliant. #pushingthegrade

micros are cool - Lead rpt - 14/Aug/08 with Alex Wheeldon

Climbed the thin crack thinking it was Burgess' Variation (S 4a). I thought it was a bit tough for a Severe! Rested on gear once having got pumped trying to work out the sequence near the top of the crack. Confusingly Rockfax only list one line up this crack, Prudence. The new BMC guide lists two; Providence, E1 5c which moves straight up from the start of the slanting crack and Divine Providence, HVS 5b, which seems to follow the same line as Prudence. What is going on?

Had a bit of a struggle trying to find gear in the middle of the face so placed a wire in the crack to the left...possibly tainting my first HVS lead.
