Dave led this and Steve seconded. I soloed to the final moves, but didn't fancy it - the words "loose block" ringing in my ears, I sloped off right and finished up "...temptation" again, much easier this time. Some cracking jams on this route!

Took a while to get off the ground and made a few false starts on the 'high crux', having popped out of there on second a few years ago, but it went smoothly with good high gear. Really nice route.

Nice lead by Chris, that I had to have a bash at even if it was top roping. Laybacking the start worked well for me with my lack of height! Slightly hard in the grade for a S4a was the general census. But a good route.

with Gen Sayer, Chris Beloe
@ChrisBeloe 30/Apr/11 Lead O/S

Start and high vertical crack were tricky but protected. Not a massive fan of the movable rocks while topping out. "Worthwhile" = high in the grade (S4a).

Reaver2k 16/Sep/07 Lead rpt

Matt spent a while trying to figure out the bottom moves, but not being a fan of jamming struggled. Switched over the lead to me (I had been trying to show him how to do it). Tricky first move for 4a, possibly 4b. Beautiful handjamming crack on your right as you wander up to the upper section. Not sure why so many people seem scared of the upper section. It's not too hard and you can get overhead gear in (cam). Takes a moment to figure out the move but is not too tough really. Am sure it felt harder the first time though. Quite slopey topout but not too bad. Glad to do this again, feels much better when its not as much of a struggle and you can revel in the jamming.

The leader decided against the finish and finished up Emma's temptation instead. I tried for it but fell from the crux while trying to finger/fist jam up the crack. Knackered and numb hands (can't tell if you've got a good hold or not) so hauled on the rope to get over this move and finish.
