had to rest on the rope going through the crux as i tried to He-Man my way up without decent hand holds - need to get my feet sorted before attempting any such move again

Dan Lane - Lead O/S - 27/May/12 with James Godwin

first climb of the day and also first climb ever at kinder so id rather have a steep learning curve on second than lead and crap it, which ending up being a good choice cool moves lovely route but i think i wouldnt have enjoyed it half as much on lead :)

balls up the lead and went completely the wrong way onto Wind Wall so decided to solo it the correct way. Ace lower wall, found the crux quite committing on solo
Graeme Hammond - Solo O/S - 24/Jul/10

Jim led after my lead attempt finished very off route as I thought the route went right for some unknown reason. Crux felt easier with a rope on but then I could relax more and had just soloed it.

First climb of the day, after the long trek up the hill with Jill and Jilly the dog, and Mum along side, all to watch, felt like I had abit of an audience! Really enjoyed this, feels soft for VS, until the wide crack! Start off up the steepish wall but with good cracks for gear, good jams, and some lovely moves up classic moorland rock in a fine position. Then I put in plenty more gear, moved out to the wide awkward crack. Was abit stumped, tried grabbing holds on the inside at first but couldn't see the move. Eventually I moved out onto the left side of it and heaved up and over on poor slopers and poor footholds, reaching a final slap for the top onto more poor slopers. Atleast 5a if not more and was somewhat shaken up! Moved out left, put in loads more gear for the final move, only to find its a piss easy mantle on perfect holds! Ohwell! Fantastic climb even if I am abit appauled with myself!
