Felt tough today after heavy rain. This gets HVS 5B in BMC guide, but I guess it is very conditions dependant.

Felt very hard. Didn't help that all the holds especially in the top half were sandy. HVS 5b grade in the BMC guide is ludicrous - Rockfax grade closer to the mark.
Ant Man Bee - 2nd - 15/Apr/12 with Charles Moreton

Very sandy
cem - Lead rpt - 15/Apr/12 with Paul Bolton

Fragmod - 2nd - 31/Mar/12

Borderline 5b/5c at the start, then lovely slabby crack climbing above. Maybe worth E1 (it's HVS in the definitive guide), but certainly worth more than one star. Very, very well protected!
