[Sion seconding the First Ascent of Seam Stress., 2 kb]20m. A bold eliminate line which climbs the shallow slaby groove on crimps and a variety of small shallow boreholes between the cracks of Seamstress and Seams the Same (which are obviously out of bounds). FA climbed with gear placed on the lead (no side runners used on the adjacent routes). Skyhooks and a small tricam protect. Great bold and balancey slab climbing which is more committing than appearances suggest!

Hidden - TR - 17/Nov/12

Really interesting route, it was fun to work out all the sequences and do some crazy moves - I'm sure at one point I mantelled onto two fingertip monos... I think sustained 6a + friable rock + big deckout potential = E6 though.

ginsters - 2nd O/S - 20/Apr/11

Cant be arsed with the lead any more, broke a hold off it and found an easier (5c) way of doing the committing bit. Bloody cold day.
smallerrich - TR - 14/Nov/10 with Sam

climbing was alright. but with friable rock (1 crimp snapped, 2 footholds crumbled during top rope assents), the potential of decking out and breaking yourself on the first half of the route, and the eliminate nature of the route, its not worth the lead. E5 5c/6a.
samrad - TR O/S - 14/Nov/10 with smallerrich

Once committed, actually very good climbing.
