BALD EAGLE - 2nd - 12/Oct/14 with Dave Smith

brian watson - Lead O/S - 28/Sep/14 with gary watson

First lead of the weekend to warm up. Crux proved interesting but a good cam protected the move. Bouldering problem at the button was easy but no gear.

Can't help thinking that sharp pull at the crux deserves a tech grade, i.e., 4a. Probably HVD, too.

How easy - Lead - 20/Jul/14

MarkyGee - 2nd O/S - 20/Jul/14 with Stu Howie

Crux surprisingly taxing, exposed and with poor gear for a VDiff!

bit of a belly flop to get up towards the belay ledge!

Did in one pitch. Guide book says HVD, would have to agree. Spent ages faffing before taking on the crux which turned out not to be that hard, but very exposed
Trevers - Lead dog - 06/Oct/13 with wjcdean

did as one pitch. Toe pinged off on the crux to lose the onsight. I'm blaming not being used to the new shoes. Or something.

Howard J - Lead dnf - 04/Jun/13 with Rob Jarratt

Retrieved my sling from the failed first attempt. The crux move wasn't really that hard, but it's still sketchy if you can't get your foot high enough, it's exposed, and the gear is unconvincing - worth more than V Diff imo

MartF - 2nd - 02/Dec/12 with carl_123

Thought about doing it in one long out pitch but did it in 2 as the guidebook suggests. The crux move felt more bold than a vdiff should, but it could have been because of having numb fingers and being wet!

Thought we'd do a nice easy VD after a rainstorm, turns out the crux move is really quite hard when its dripping wet! Took four of us an attempt each (and 3 falls!) before on the second go we managed it! A nice arete although its a bit of a one move wonder.
