Start of traverse a bit delicate. Then pleasant to the end of traverse where I got a half knee bar, which I held for ages, whilst placing a blind cam and trying to pluck up courage to move round and stand up. Once stood up, pulled bit of slack through to stop rope getting caught in cracks. Climbed first crack okay via layback. Feeling little smug having got so far without a scratch. Then got totally shredded on next proper crack as I squirmed and humped my way up through the rounded exit.

This is the kind of HVS that's actually too hard for E1, so they just leave it at HVS so people know they're in for a battle... found the traverse tough but straightforward, but I very nearly ran out of willpower on the offwidth, after a lot of thrutching!

Lead up to the offwidth no problem. Offwidth was then a nightmare so belayed Olli up, he brought trainers with him and put them on for the offwidth and cruised it.
Rachel Slater - AltLd - 28/Jul/12 with Olli Crudge
Interesting climb. Rachel cruised around to the ledge but struggled with the off width at the top, she made a belay and I brought trainers up, with a big struggle around the end of the undercuts. I struggled up the crack in approach shoes and by yanking on the rope.

Bit of a two day, siege tactic epic! Emily tried it lots of times before I went up and put in the first gear for her. She then grovelled up most of it, before belaying below the off width at the top, which I enjoyed leading. Overall pretty full value for HVS - a new UK's toughest I reckon!

This was my first round with the Mincer, and at 6ft 2, expected problems. All went really well, worth persevering for the amazing upper jamming/layback cracks. Attempted the route again several years later, pumped after numerous tries on the bouldery start. Couldn't work out turning the corner, and took my first lead fall onto gear. Ran away licking my wounds and cursing the intervening years of Export drinking. I shall return.

Complete nightmare to second for a grit novice, finished demoralised. Lanky climbers at a disadvantage.

With Colin Mortlock and two of his pupils, one of whom soloed it in normal shoes before we saw him. He got to the ledge at bottom of crack. I ran round to drop a top rope while Colin stood underneath to catch him!!!
