Travesed in OK, but the mid-section bridging was tricky. Crazy step across (two good cams to reassure) and easy finish. I'd say this was a serious sandbag for a novice Diff Leader, and the voting agrees it's HD. Doesn't merit three stars.

I was unintentionally half way up Black Hawk Hell Crack S 4a when I had a bit of a wobble. This was made worse when I realised Niall Grimes was watching me. I had to reverse back down and correct, not before asking Niall for help and exclaiming how difficult I thought it was for Mod! All very embarrassing.

My leading confidence was hardly boosted upon looking down to see my dad break the one important rule of belaying that I told him to never forget - he'd let go of the rope (to take a picture). Fun times.

started on Black Hawk Hall Crack but it started to pish down, hastily bailed to this when the holds started growing puddles. And discovered its great fun for a diff and stays surprisingly dry in the rain - at least for long enough to get up it
