Hidden - AltLd rpt - 15/Apr/15
Led P1. Got to the crux easily, placed high gear and came down for a rest. Went up and down to the tricky moves a few times, thought I couldn't do it because of the slime, but then just went for it. Scary, but once you get high feet and layback hard the holds which I thought were nasty jams become good sidepulls. Very nearly fell though and had to take quite a long breather before I built the belay!

Quite a few moves in a row but never too hard. Good rock on the crux but often a bit damp feeling on holds you would much rather bone dry!
CurlyStevo - 2nd - 25/May/14 with Mick Ward
Run out more than I wanted because I wasn't that confident placing gear whilst weighting my arms, not for lack of options. Decided to make the easy moves instead of hanging round

Was a bit shagged after the last route but thought I'd be ok on a VS, but was blowin o.m.a at the top of the crack and had to hang about on the rope, getting on to the first ledge was a bugger to start with too. Much relieved to see it's now an HVS. Must get a new guide book.

After all the psych I was surprised at how easily it went (although it was lovely and dry - no grease at all). Bomber gear and just a couple of committing moves before the pre ledge jugfest.
Can't believe I've actually lead my first HVS - get in there !!!! Done as a single pitch.

Tried leading, damp in crack near the top of P1. Tried to move up several times before getting hands to the ledge and finding... nothing. Eventually feet popped off and I fell a short distance onto a good cam. Arms too pumped to try again, so got Paul & Jill to lower a top rope.
