Technically second HVS lead, but this one felt much more like I earned the points. Looks blank from below, but enough edges arrive on the way up to make it lovely. Pretty pleased with myself after eyeing it up for ages.

Pretty tricky, but not half as tricky as it would have been leading it. Went from left crack/flake and moved out into the main crack after the overlap as the guidebook said. Found all this toproping quite disappointing, not as much thrill, less personel than leading and even seconding. One day I will return to lead these things.

Reaver2k 25/Apr/07 TR β

Repeated this half an hour later because the right hand crack at the beginning looked a little more inspiring and was hoping to try out some finger jams - it hurts and chose to avoid them in many places, probably stupidly as I need practice in this field! Felt abit more like a "real route" taking the crack direct somehow but again the TR pulled quite alot of life out of it.
