Wendy Watthews - Lead O/S - 03/Oct/15 with Tom FP
Fairly straightforward to the overlap and then just committing to go for the top (on not ideal, but OK gear). it's unclear if the line is direct (not much there), left (to the E2) or right (to the footledge/pocket foot and crack) , I sort of bridged/splayed the right and middle left.

This is definitely not VS. I have done E1s with better gear which on this route is so fiddly and shallow.
Moves are easy but my head was telling me I can't fall on this.

So it has the same crux as Back Off? That makes it 5b doesn't it? Go over the overlap 1 metre to the right to make it 4c. Cracking route though.

Felt top end VS, top end 4c but not HVS as there were some really good nut placements right where I needed them at half height. Gave up trying to place the micro wire below the overlap though as the placement didn't look like it would hold a 90kg fall. The moves over the overlap weren't too difficult once committed. Possibly the best route of the day.

VS/HVS 4c/5a. Right on the cusp. Still inclined to go with top end VS, after comparison with Caveman and Jiggery Pokery over on the Glacis.

Climbed to help confirm a grade in the new guide. Personally think its HVS 4C, the gear looked too shallow and small in my opinion for it to be VS.
Stanners - TR O/S - 19/Jun/11 with Mark Davis, Jack Bradbrook
Debate on the grade between Rob and Mark was beginning to annoy me and so I decided to top rope it myself as a warm down to find out how hard it really was, I think I agree with Rob HVS 4c seem about right.
Quarryboy - TR O/S - 19/Jun/11 with Rob Stanfield, Mark Davies
Led this time to remove dagger. Top end VS 4c as some of the gear is fiddly and the move over the overlap is borderline 4c/5a and protected by a microwire.

FA (although very likely done before). Links start of Travel Bug to last couple of moves of Back Off, via a nice crack which takes good gear.
