James Thacker - Lead - 03/Oct/15 with Alison Culshaw
A fantastic and pretty out there route at HVS. Flake was fantastic. Pitch 3 was seriously bold, never difficult but not trivial. Lots of ground to cover after the numbered pitches to get to the top. Summiting after made for a good long day.

Got lost somewhere on pitch four, was getting on so bailed off down Shibboleth. Great climbing up til that point but quite stiff for 5a on the second pitch I thought. Will be back.

Samuel Wainwright - AltLd O/S - 26/Jul/14 with Rafe Osborne
Bold route on an intimidating crag, have rarely felt so scared climbing or so relieved to be standing on top of a cliff. Being on the hang didn't help one bit, and probably contributed to some seriously questionable route finding. Found the whole situation mind blowing! Made Centurion on Ben Nevis feel like a walk in the park.

Awesome climb. Seconded it clean despite the big rucksack. Cool positions but it would have felt pretty bold to lead I reckon. Especially pitch 3. I lead the initial scramble but I won't claim the Alt lead.

clipskipper - AltLd O/S - 14/May/08 with Ed Babington
Hard first corner pitch very sustained and technical, moving round the corner is good and easy then the undercut flake is deffinately the highlight. Big cams or hex's usefull.
