Fell off a few times from the Y crack bit. HVS seems like bollocks. Hard E1/Easy E2

Climbed the Y cracks to the top. Fell off the first go, tried again and led clean. Felt steady second go but significantly harder than hvs 5b.

Sustained, really felt like I'd earned an E1, hard for the grade but good gears

Tried this four times from the ground but ended up having one rest at the pod then finished it would like to come back and get it clean, bloody hard for the grade more like top end E2!

Hard and sustained. Might have got it second go if I hadn't nearly de-gloved a finger in a jam.

a fall at the beginning, then and almighty hail storm came in just as the climbing got easy at the top, lost my hat and had to stand pointing away from the hail for about 5 mins, then beautiful weather just after that! an experience

I had a rest before the crux. Surprised to find it was still pretty hard a few years after my first attempt, when I was spanked. To be fair my arms were still tired from the previous day, but nevertheless... I shall come back! Good value for the grade!

Felt a bit 'ard for HVS 5B (Western Grit) had trouble getting intop the niche, maybe i'll try it when I can lead harder than E1

got to the crux (the flare crack) and fell glanced the floor was lucky to a point, gear is good but its pumpy climbing and theres a point u need to place gear and go for it, pretty harsh jamming crack will prob avoid unless with a mat next time

Top section desperate. If you stick to the two thin cracks and don't reach out far left or right then its neither E1 nor 5c in my opinion! I've done far easier E3's!

Fell on to Adam's lunch box on a rock (with the rope stretch), as a cam popped out, unexpectedly. Close call.
