Seeing Rosie do it first really helped!

Tom and I both had a few attempts at the start. Eventually committed to the rather strenuous crux move and managed to rock up on to the little flake and into the groove using heads, shoulders, knees and toes! Epic rock over moves above and a well positioned finished! Well protected and really fun.

3rd visit to this so chuffed to finally get it. Been doing it totally wrong the first 2 attempts. Secret unlocked. Not so hard when the sequence is figured out.

This is given HVS in Roaches guidebook though it was appropriate. First section was tricky trying to pull into the corner but after several attempts managed it and then really enjoy the exposed move around the nose and nice finish.

Nice moves off the ground, but completely horrified by move off the block and the same move repelled 5 more of our party- all significantly better climbers than I!
