Nicole lead, wobbled in the middle getting onto the ledge (no good holds to pull up with) but then completed with determination!!

col3 18/Jul Lead O/S

First lead of the year! Struggled on this one. Nearly bailed a few times. It's quite exposed at certain points and going up onto the midway ledge was mentally hard as there were no real handholds to grab onto! Ended up traversing to a large ledge off to the right, climbing up from there then up the right hand side and stepping onto the ledge. Pleased I convinced myself to carry on.

Steep climbing with a delicate crux and awkward gear placements (unless you have some large cams). I'd say this was closer to V.Diff.

Jamie's first lead on grit in ages. Made easier work of it than I did on second. The step right at halfway felt more nervy than it should have - even though you could pretty much hop off the route at that point.

mungo 23/Aug/08 Lead O/S

Nice route, felt more like VDiff than Diff but thats probabaly down to my lack of routes on Grit this year!!

Dad led this one, Neil followed, then Matt led it (his first lead with his new rack) and I seconded it, easy enough really, maybe slightly more VDiff for its steepness but would be an easy one. Went up the gully at the end to get Matts gear out, but then downclimbed and did the direct route, easy enough but intimidating I'm sure for a Diff leader as gear is at feet and its a 3c move. Worth a wander, possibly a better solo though.
