Very very wet and green. Made the whole thing much harder. Climbed in rain and wind. Better than sitting in a cafe.

Chalky Cat 27/May/09 AltLd O/S

Very wet windy day, looked like one of the dryer lines from the bottom, but getting on the rock proved us to be mistaken - all hand / foot holds were slippery due to either being dripping wet or green slime. Glad I chose to back off the whole lead.

HS? Really? It says S in the guide book and me and Steve both thought it only felt like a VDiff. The gear looks great from the bottom but isn't the best once you get up there, but it is there. Nice ledges to rest and the actual moves didn't seem hard at all - very easy...

The hard bits (which *are* harder than the Drainpipe!) are well protected and above rest ledges, S 4b seems appropriate.

Very easy at HS. "Powerful for the grade?" noo the drainpipe to the right is much harder. Anyway, nice climbing at a soft grade, with great gear. I didnt use the ledge slightly to the left as it makes it a bit more interesting.
