First route in the dark!

Stuart Hurworth 30/Jul/14 2nd O/S

Quite hard for a HS! Fairly exposed and quite a big spacing between gear! If you go straight up without the arete there are some balancy moves.

Great climb tricky start and went left a bit at the top out.

Beautiful climbing in a fantastic situation. Holds and pro just appear. 1 reachy move.

Lead on Leo's gear, couldn't pass up the opportunity to lead this as its not the type of crag that you go to regularly. Good (but short) route, nice exposed finish, didn't use any gear after stepping on to the arete.

Unfortunately didn't seem anything too special (still good mind), though this could have been because it is nails for HS.

James decided not to solo it after I found it hard. Enjoyed it more the 2nd time

Good climb. I drifted towards the left at the top. Protection was much better than it looked from below.
