lead the first and second pitch and bren finished up neb direct and I aided up it. be careful of loose blocks on the first pitch at about half way one seemingly solid came off in my hand and nearly killed my belayer! good pitch tho
A true classic of its genre - Hard. We didn't quite manage Neb Direct but the two 5c cracks on the The Neb itself were both desperate in their own right. I did both after taking over from Dave on the first but fell off the second crack on my first try. Your average face climber would be in dire straits.

1pt on wet crack as it was getting dark :(
First pitch was fine but really struggled on the top pitches
First pitch was delicate, but good. Second and third pitches were brutal! Clean on first pitch only.

Wanted to do neb direct. Found p1 difficult for route finding. P2 crack 1 went OK, crack 2 was sopping wet with running water. Tried really hard anyway because I could see the roof crack was dry and really wanted clean ascent. Chalk was more like tooth paste though, and I fell off onto gear. Used gear to aid second crack. Finished normal route- traverse under roof was scary.

P1 and 3.. Stiff pulls through cracks

Led P1 and P3 (2nd go)
Hard cracks, 1st pitch really good Also seconded the grasper and swung leads on Valor (repeat)
Beautiful P1. Both short cracks demand some respect - tricky. Very good indeed. Direct version looks interesting...
Pitch 1 only ,linked with Broken Edge to finish.

E2. Went to try neb direct but it was really dark under roof as sun had set so quickly finished up neb. Wicked first pitch and fierce cracks above.

I did first pitch with one rest,Phil did the two overhanging cracks with a couple of falls and i finished off under the over hang and up to top,tough climb.
My intro to E numbers and 5B climbing. Abbed off tree as Ritchie wasn't up to doing the rest of it.

Went to do Neb Direct but it started to rain part way through - probably for the best because it looks 'ARD!
