Pleasant lower half, bomber cam at the bottom of the top bit of crack and a not so good one at the top of that, so hung around longer than I would've liked. Took a long time to lasso the chock but a heel/toe jam made it kind of comfortable. Top moves quite good after this.

Didn't feel very confident on this for some reason, spent too long convincing myself to give it the beans and had to hang on the rope. Pulled back on after taking a short rest and battled up the layback, should probably be less bold in future, the move at the top of the layback was desperate, I was horribly pumped and last piece of gear was probably too low to protect me. Not particularly keen to come back and try it again due to difficulty placing gear in the layback.

Aline 28/Sep/14 Lead dog

Robin and I wanted to 'play' in this lively looking and well protected HVS, having never led one before. Robin placed the gear 2/3 of the way up but couldn't finish. Then I tried, thankful for his gear in place, placed one more dodgy nur and lassoed that wedged in bit of rock (felt very adventurous when I dropped my slung on my foot and balanced it back up...) and finally made the last move over the bulge. What an experience! Nice climbing, the crux is just below the bulge when the crack offers less than you'd wish for for your hands. Push up anyway and it gets better when you reach the jugs on the wedged in boulder.

Felt a bit tired as i'd just lead an HVS without warming up and although this should have been fairly straightforward all the gear placement seemed to be in awkward positions, would have helped if I had more cams... trying to place a hex just before the offwidth completely knackered me and I rested on a stuck cam before backing off to try again another day.
