Clean repeat. Romped up to retrieve Mike’s gear. Hand traversed the top pinnacle of Inelegance which was a lovely sequence – would be bold to try on lead though.

Steve finished by taking the direct route to the top, probably upping the grade by 1.

Lead clean on sight. Placed some high gear before going for the main layback without stopping. Interesting technical climbing ends a bit too soon, joining up with the finish of inelegance.

First lead on limestone in a while... struggled on polish with footwork, went for a footjam and slipped, fell (hex jammed well in - pain to retrieve). Felt harder than both the vs and hvs done tonight. Will have to revisit and change techniques.

A few thuggy layback moves make up the most part of this route. Take some big cams or hexes.

good strenuous climb at this grade. just climbed direct though instead of following up inelegence.

Interesting flake with some smearing of the feet needed, but the holds are solid up the first section. Easy pullover the face of the second bulge but a bit of a traverse across the top of the 'Incompetence' to top out again with no gear until you put a slip round the pinnacle on the right.

Dan lead, bit of a confidence re-gainer for him, after a bit of a painful fall off a HVS. Nice route, straight forward at the grade.

Fell off the initial lay-back in 2000, and decided it was a good idea to purchase a helmet.
