I led P1, Charley led P2 and P3. Liked the look of the starting pitch until I got on it and then found it really steep and pumpy. P2 was fine to start with then a crazy step left on horrid holds all felt a bit tenuous. PŁ was a bit of an offwidth and all was going well until I tried to pull up and into the wide crack but got stuck because of all the gear I had on my harness before I finally succeeded!!! Awesome route but not for the faint hearted :D

Brilliant route. Led pitches 2 & 3. Found the crux pitch to be pitch 2, was really good & great fun although committing. Pitch 3 was easier then it looked, didn't think I'd have any gear big enough to protect it so was surprised when I found a 0.5 friend protected the crux move.

Led pitches 1 and 3, got some much needed practice hand jamming on pitch 1 which would make a fantastic top end VS in it's own right. Glad I didn't lead pitch 2, felt pretty hard work. The Harding slot was something else entirely. First proper HVS lead and good practice for offwidthing/ fist jamming. Pitch 3 is safe as houses with some decent sized cams and hexes.

Led all three pitches, abbed off after P3, as we had already done Nea. P2 surprised the hell out of me, as I was expecting a 4a bimble to the crux pitch. From the hold you're supposed to go up from, I traversed further left, on poor holds and no gear, making that bit quite a bit more "interesting" than it should have been. P3 was nice, arm-barred to get my feet up then stepped into the crack, getting to the top flake from there was rather surprisingly easy.

Lead all pitches. This route is simply awesome, the crack on pitch 3 really isn't that bad at all (for HVS) and doesn't require any thrutching at 5a. Very well protected with a huge variety of top quality climbing. Don't bother with the finishing pitchs of Nea they don't add anything (but length and an awkward scramble back down) to the route.

2nd pitch is excellent - the groove is easier than appears but I struggled on the left traverse - quite sustained.
I lobbed off the 3rd pitch when my foot slipped on a layback move - had 2 good wires in but the lenght of fall meant I almost hit the sloping ledge. They only injuries were grazes to Mike's knees. Had a few more goes, but after that experience I couldn't commit on the awkward deckable move required to reach the jamming crack and the associated bomber big cam placement. Traversed into Nea and finished up that.
