Getting over the overhang took some thinking, ended up going for the lefthandside flake instead of an arm jam which was my first attempt.

Took a proper lead fall (feet above where the rope clipped the gear) after my jam popped (hands a bit big for it so were sticking out the top of the deeper upper jam), and ended up swinging below the overhang. Pulled the ropes and got it clean second go! Just jammed harder really! Very safe climb this! My right hand is definitely grazed today!

I definately felt the rope help my balance, so tried it again but not enough energy to climb twice at end of day.. next time though!

bit of an epic really, didnt climb well today. Tried to lead it and backed of the crux several times. Don then lead it and i fell of it several times when seconding. Really need to get better on these types of climbs.

Brutal as the name suggests! Really a one move wonder but so many 10m gritstone routes are so no suprise there! Move stumped me a bit. Lower section is easy, to a rest under the roof. Can put in as much gear as you want, reflecting back I only put in one piece which is odd for me, ordinarily I would put in several to be on the safe side, I must be becoming more confident in myself. Jammed with my right hand hand, stepped up and clutched the obvious jug with left hand, stepped but a little more and tried to reach into the back of the crack higher up with left hand. but couldn't find a solid jam, fumbled round a bit, tried pulling sidewards on it, and then tried jamming just above my left insecurely, tried laying back a bit and whipping my foot over the lip onto the hold on the left, almost had this but couldn't quite rock over onto it. Thought I was going to fall, but composed myself dropped my foot back down and lowered myself from jams onto the ledge under the roof again. Took a couple minutes rest breathing heavily, tried a similar technique which failed, lowered myself back to the ledge and thought about what to try next with my stinging hands! I think I jammed my right hand, reached up with left to a hold to the left of the jug? then left foot quite high under the roof, step up and take the break higher up with left hand, readjust and your there, 5a with the right move, 5b, 5c with the other probably and rather saw hands! Great fun!

Tried a few times as roped solo to try out new 'Silent Partner' soloing device - but found it a bit awkward clipping gear above head. Led it in the end. Very nice. A technical climb.
