Bow Crack S
6m. Take the thin right-hand branch to gain a block (crux) and a steep finish. Avoiding the bridging start (and perhaps wearing blinkers) gives a more consistent pitch. © ROCKFAX

First climb of the day and felt quite pumpy! Accidently used the wall behind whilst placing gear (Didn't read description propperly) but no biggie wouldn't have made any difference. Quite steep for a HVD, possibly a severe. Tonnes of gear, as much as you want to put in, no real "crux" just ongoing bad-handjams. Nice to be back on some rock! Dad followed with exerting about the same amount of energy! Said he found it tricky.
