Too weak currently
Cake - Lead dnf - 04/May/13 with John Cooper

Yet another of those burly grit routes which is too hard for E1, so it got HVS. Conditions weren't ideal, the break was full of green slime, the footholds below the crack were soggy and slippy, and the crack was so wet my jams kept slipping out. Eventually struggled up, great fight, hard HVS!
Joughton - Lead O/S - 23/Nov/12

Another tough cookie. Foot hold down to the right comes in very handy if you move across low on a fist jam.

This was meant to be a bouldering day with perhaps a few routes if it warmed up. It wasn't actually particularly cold but we were essentially in a cloude the whole day, so it never got 100% dry and much of Burbage South was green anyway. Led this after Eddie backed off the starting moves. Those were ok but the finishing crack proved to be a bit of a battle due to being covered in slimy lichen. Poor footholds didn't help. Was pleased to find out it was 5b as felt very hard for 5a! The jams were good but painful. Also had a couple of goes at Nosferatu on a top rope that Brian, Ian W and Mike T had set up. Got all the moves second go (warm fingers helped) but would have needed a few more goes to link it.

Finally did it! After my failure last time i came back fresh'ish' and brawled my way up it. Its surprisingly sustained and stenuous as there is little in the way of feet for most of it.

Good until the crack but entering it feels really unstable, even when in, it feels awkward. Tried on lead but couldn't get into the crack as too pumped after boulders - Hannah finished it off and i followed
