Started up this one hoping to regain something from my previous retreat of a severe, it didnt go well. Got up the first bit with easy (obviously) and onto the ledge. Then couldnt see any protection at all for where the guide appears to direct me. Started making the move with no protection, and realised that the move actually seemed quite tricky, especailly for a VDiff. Not sure if Hobson Moor has its own grading of easy grades or whether I'm just losing it or had a hard time. Anyway - moved right into the staircase like groove as I was determined not to let all that rope flaking go to waste again. Easy enough and pleasent enough, abit disappointed in my leading proformance on that day though! Will look back here to see how other people have found the midle section.
