17/31. How can 3m of wide crack be such a brutal struggle?Nick Russell - 2nd - 21/Jul/14 with Alex Winter
17 on Staffordshire nose. Cramps in forearms. Got on board lots of nosh and water at the bottom.

top crack after the crux of Valkyrie was the hardest bit. Stunning route :)

Good. The overhang felt pretty secure and straightforward with a positive approach; but finished via the normal route, rather than the desperate short crack above the Valkyrie crux. Have previously led Valkrie, so have beta for the easier section.

yoyoed up to the first overhang rearranged gear and runners and eventually lead through, which was my hardest grit lead sequence to date, avoided the offwidth after this as running short on time. Intend to properly lead the whole route at some stage! Atleast HVS 5a through the first overhang IMO.

was so psyched up after doing the crux lower down I started to climb the flake of the original in reverse! Traversed round to front of buttress which I think now is not the route. All a bit scrappy, last climb of day.

bad arm over weekend which spoiled attempt ,got stuck on first crux going onto flake,just didnt have the power captin,,couldnt get some gear out so abseiled down from top which was my first proper abseil and not the best one to do as quite a bit exposed,bloody scary too, ended up going thru hollybush...gave some onlookers a laugh though !

Had a real epic, lots of wind and a real battle to get up. Had to rest on gear a good few times. Great climb though, would like to try it on a calmer day.

Ow! A nice enough route until the heinous offwidthy bit at the top. I lost blood and sweat before finally admitting defeat and being lowered off through the hollybush :(

Pathetic attempt. Got my hands mixed up and had to have a rest mid-crux. Also neither of us did the top crack above the Valkyrie crux - it was desperate.
