Brilliant grit HVS crack climb with bomber jams and gear throughout.
gavinpeach - Lead O/S - 16/Aug/15 with Hellen
The jams felt hard enough in the middle to merit 5b, but what do I know, I'm a jamming novice really. Best bit is you really do have to jam to get up it.

Sustained and pumpy. I nearly chickened out but decided I had to do it on this visit. Great quality route.
Jimbo C - Lead O/S - 25/Jul/15 with Spiros
Steve lead dogged and I seconded. Had to rest to take out gear which had been rested on. The climbing isn't very secure and i couldn't really get any jams to stick. I'm not a good jammer anyway.

First time I've ever really worked a trad climb. Took a lot of effort mostly getting gear in knackered me out.
Really enjoyed it by the end though. Glad I managed to finish.

Felt very hard but I guess it comes down to your style. Jamming is not my style. After Steve bailed above the hard moves I dogged up to his high point and then did the last easier move to finish it.

Fell off after trying to place a poor hex where I should have put a good jam in. Got it after resting. None of the moves are that hard, but none of them are easy, and it's very sustained.

I missed watching Alan fall on this but I could see it would've been pumpy if I'd hung around. As it was, seconding it felt easy since I did it fast but I think leading it would've been a different story.

Maybe it was just a humid day, but this felt like a total sandbag! Very tough to get established in the jamming crack, and very steep, strenuous and hard to place gear once in it! Gave up on the lead after a couple of falls, and still had to rest on the toprope! Never HVS...
