[High Street, 3 kb]20m. Amble up the slab then attack the right-hand crack system via a taxing start to the breather. Step right and follow the thin continuation on good finger-locks. Not really two grades harder than Billy Whizz is it? © ROCKFAX

Should have not got gripped. Felt very out of trad practise, both head for running it out on kit and also got mega mega pumped.

Solid E4 onsight. Managed to rest on a couple of jams in the main wall, but got very pumped on the last bit. Interestingly the scariest bit was nearly pulling my own nut out the peg scar at the crux, could have been bad.

I just don't seem to have much luck with E4s at the moment. The technical crux was ok - a few hard, committing pulls but not that hard for 6a. The real crux was the continuation crack, which was very sustained at 5b/c. Felt easier than Wee Doris the previous day, though possibly only because I was fresher and the gear was fine. Annoyingly ran out of gas a few moves below the top and peeled off. Went up again, placed another wire and fell off frustratingly close to the top after not quite getting the feet right. Got it done third go. I should go back and try to repeat Billy Whizz, Boulevard and this clean on the same day. Now that would be a stamina fest and half! Done on the Sunday morning (well, around lunchtime) of Ian's 50th birthday weekend. Returned to the hut for a late lunch and went on to climb at Stoney in the afternoon.
