Great crux moves, finished P1 after Phil backed off.
Merlin - AltLd RP - 23/Aug/15 with Phil Chalkley

An enjoyable climb and the traverse is good value for the second, what with the fall they'll take if they fluff it.

In one pitch though didn't put a runner in after the top of the first crack. Limit of friction for HVS is overplaying it a bit good feet all the way across just no hands between the two cracks.

Bit of a massive fail on all accounts. Laybacked the crack at the top and then struggled to get out. Then after sitting on the rope for a few minutes decided to come back down. Trad head clearly needs to be found again soon.

nice safe route if you find all the gear on the traverse and certainly not run out / scary for me and I'm not particularly bold! Failed to find a move above 4c on the route, crux was rocking up on to the arete near the top of the initial crack for me. VS if you ask me and certainly no where near the limit of HVS friction there are large foot pockets / smears and a good finger lock for the last section. I suspect the grader didn't find the easiest sequence or was having a bad day.

I led the first pitch the climb up is good. Initially I traversed too high and made a second attempt. I got a nice wire high in the crack above the start of the traverse. The traverse is much better if the three pockets are used. Dan did the second pitch which is easy enough. Good climb recommend having a go.
Johnny B Diggerman - AltLd O/S - 25/Jul/11 with Dan L

Great lead, I've looked at this for a while then saw a man kitting up for it while I was belaying a mate, so I thought tonights the night. Great feeling tip toeing across the middle section and some good quality jamming to make your way there. Very well protected I even placed a cam part way across in The final crack.
