Good lead by Beth. Bold 5a move up the face. And finished up the corner.

finished up corner, big move not far off floor.
Beth-Cath-T - Lead rpt - 18/May/14

HVS? Maybe if you escape into the corner at the end. Stick to the face all the way and you're closer to the guidebook E1. Will be back to lead.
JimboWizbo - TR - 27/Apr/14 with Beth

Climbed until our top rope anchor, didn't want to climb past this but happy to give a lead a go next time. crux right at the top unless you can finish left.
