Tricky enough justt to get to the start of. Harder than it looks, the first half is actually the hardest, although I found committing to the layback section intimidating it absolutely fine once I started.

looks harder than it is. Some nice laybacking moves but over too soon.

Looks intimidating but turns out to be a bit of a pushover.

This is good. place the gear and layback rapidly before your arms go.
SGD - 2nd - 09/Jul/11 with Rob Gray

nice route but whats with grit HS wich clearly have 4b moveS being graded HS 4a. Seems to me there is overuse of the HS 4a and VS 4b grades for no apparent reason on routes that aren't that pumpy or run out for the grade!

Headtorched it, mostly laybacked with a (too) high cam 3. Really good thuggy route but a bit short.

Easy second with nice layback section after Matt struggled on point, good effort on his lead.

Erm ran out of big cams so the top was a bit of a take a breath and go for it! Laybacked most of it, shallow pocket near the arete gives a fairly good left foot 'rest' half way up for a bit of a shake out.

Laybacks, bomber way of climbing, sod the gear
