Hidden - 2nd - 09/Jun/13
my birthday route on a glorious sunny day. We actually did the first pitch of bishop's arete(?) traversing in from the diocese corner so maybe a VS I think but *** all the way. The 2nd pitch is particularly steep and juggy and hard to beat!

Lead the first pitch, delicate straight start
pelvoux - AltLd - 26/May/13 with Alex
Two fiddly protected the slightly damp traverse on P1. Move over the overhang easy. P2 is only 4c really but really enjoyable. A good route but not really 3 stars. Led P1. With Davor on the BMC international meet.

Class route. Slab, corner, overhang, traverse, then the crack section is a glorious romp.
Led throughout in one massive pitch, easy to skip the belays and to strip on abseil. Wifey didn't fancy aiding this Hard Rock tick and opted for a skinny dip instead!

One of the best routes I've done. Did the 1st 2 pitches in one joyous long stonking uber-pitch. Thought this was much better than Suicide Wall. Great varied climbing getting steadily easier until you're climbing the headwall cracks on perfectly designed jugs. Superb.

Found the first pitch hard and came off just at the overhang, after dropping my small nuts due to being so flustered. Bugger. That top move seemed pretty hard to me. The crack on the second pitch is great fun.
middlemarker - AltLd - 30/May/10 with Mike M
I did the direct start, which looks slightly more difficult (E2 in the guide book), but it takes a couple of small wires. One of my best climbs in Cornwall.
