My first climb on grit. Fell several times trying to get off the ground, then got it by avoiding the polished holds and just laybacking. Andrew led p2, but backed off the crux so I led it on his gear. That's a pretty wild move for a Severe! I didn't find the hidden hold, so used a fist jam. Just had to trust that the promised jug on top was really going to be there.

First route on beautifully sunny afternoon (what - summers finally come month late!) Intriguing start involving laybacking: boulder mat below providing psychological help, esp. For lead. Hs 4c yes, but only if you find right sequence of moves to climb into crack.
Ending has beautiful handhold hole in the left wall in the crack, jugs aren't apparent though until get arm over the top.

Hidden - Lead - 08/Apr/11
Very difficult start, looks like there could be more than one way to go, but the obvious layback is definitely a 5a I think! Placed a nut from the ground with a big jump and then attempted the move several times getting slightly higher and more pumped on each one. Got hold of the handhold above but then couldn't get feet up into a position I could sustain or move from. Ended up seconding it without too much trouble though after a bit of a rest! Then came P2, leader belayed in the wrong place initially then moved over to belay off the big block on easy gully wall. Went straight up from there though found relatively poor gear in the mid section, and went up right instead of left following what looked like easier moves. Realised was on Jelly Roll then lost confidence to go back across onto the route and came down. Marcus then led this pitch though bailed out of doing the overhanging crack with rope drag and traversed all the way left under the roof (probably increasing the grade!) to the top part of easy gully wall. Think we need to start over! Will be doing this again properly!

very exciting. glad I lead the 2nd pitch, as the start of the 1st was very hard with the super slidy polished rock.
over the top is fun :)

The pitch 2 "traverse" caused some shenanigans. i think I went too far to the left and then too high, to belay underneath the crack pitch. This made this a very bold traverse for both me and my second. But it meant that pitch 3 was safer because the belay was right underneath the crack. Good fun!

Mike W - Solo - 22/Aug/09
First pitch caused issues, and required a bit of a sit on a cam at the very start! Then didn't pay attention to the route topo and ended up leading the VS route instead. Should go back and do it properly sometime.

Described as 3 pitch in the BMC guide - albeit the middle one is a walk along the ledge and hop up a bit! I led first and last pitches. A hard start and committing finish. Thoroughly enjoyable and another climb I'm proud of.

Brilliant first pitch, but then due to mis-information from my 2nd (mentioning no names Richard Hopton), I did the 2nd pitch of "Easy Gully Wall" by mistake. Oh well.

Borrowing my dad's 48yr old guidebook wasn't the best idea. Could have done with a few hints about the final move. Lead it, but it wasn't pretty at the top!!
Freddie 1 - Lead O/S - 14/Jun/08 with Roy Hulse
Very tricky first move for a route graded severe. The footholds for the layback are seriously polished. I reckon a fair few people must fail to get off the ground....

Chickened out of the final overhang and finshed up easier ground to the left. Steve followed the correct line.

lead this again recently, no way the start is 4c atleast hard 5a, the final overhang (with all the holds found) is stiff HS 4b climbing IMO. I think I'd be happy with HS 5a as the grade for this route overall.
