Did this thinking it was the HS Pleasant Surprise to the left. Thought it seemed okay for HS so was surprised when I found out it was a VS! Seemed easier than 4c? Maybe I've just been climbing on grit too much...

Matthew Scott-Chalmers - 2010

Ouch, I really messed this up, as I muscled my way up the crack with bad style and got pumped badly. Made to to the overhand, got gear in and had to rest. Final step out for the final few metres was fine. Should have layed back on the crack ascent. Stupid me, I nearly pinged off I was so pumped.
allanfarrell - Lead dog - 25/Aug/09 with Emma Turnbull

One piece of pre-placed gear at the crux on the abseil from Paul's lead on pleasant suprise Slight slip at crux first effort. Found the undercut to rest and shake out then crux went really well.
