Roped solo, never ever ever going to lead this - But hopefully I'll get it clean one day! Need a couple more goes on top rope to link up the moves.

Accidental E1!!!! We thought we were doing the VS as the book definitely made it look like we were doing the right route but the gear was awful on awful holds. Somehow I didn't fall off despite being my first E1 ever.
col3 - 2nd O/S - 26/Mar/11 with Paul

Ment to go up seventh Veil, Not shure what route I did in the end. What I did was very run out and atlest 5a climbing; polished crimps and slopers! Reterated from start as confused at the moves. Whent for it, very desperate!

onsight solo with a bit of beta along the lines of 'it's polished as fuck and more technical than it looks.' quite correct. grand fun though.
