Hurricane Hideaway*** E1 5b
[First Slovakian ascent, maybe..., 3 kb]30m. The main corner feature, finishing through the roof left of the corner. Climb the corner until it is possible to traverse left along an obvious break to gain a hanging corner above. Climb this to the roof and undercut rightwards to gain a short finishing corner above, which gives a meaty finish.

WARNING - my second dislodged a huge (microwave size) loose block at top overhang. We trundled this at end of day but Grimer said the even bigger downward pointing tooth like block beneath (TV size) was loose - so be vary careful or check on abseil on way down first!

Ended up slinking off right at the top, as there was a big loose block in the final groove. Bit crusty that way but the climbing was ok.

very very hard especially in the wet!felt more like 5c at the top 20ft!
jon_gill1 - Lead O/S - 03/Jun/11 with john beardmore

Nice climbing in the lower crack, the top groove is interesting and unless I missed something the roof was desperate even as a second. Good lead by Jon.

Some suspect rock on the lower part of the climb but top 2/3rds is immaculate. Top out is hard (but great) at grade I thought!

had to rest after not figuring out final jammy moves through the roof quickly enough!

Think I scared fergus off the crux at the top. He traversed left instead of taking the roof. Roof wasnt so bad the second time though, must be better at jamming!
CalumC - 2nd rpt - 07/Jun/09 with Fergus Cuthill

Not knowing the line of this, continued climbing directly up to and over the capping roof/bulge where this goes left - the Gampy's Wallet finish (E2 5c). The meat of this is in the independent climbing, perhaps even meatier than the original meaty finish.
