Did 1st pitch of Climbers' Club Ordinary and 2nd pitch of this climbChris Joyce - 2nd O/S - 27/Apr/13 with Doug miller
Chuffed to finally nail this one. Feels like some sort of perverse milestone. The secret is pulling on the jams the right way, then they're bomber!

i did a super direct start as i wasn't man enough (and don't have big enough hands) to pull through the roof
katherinesydney - 2nd β - 15/Jul/12 with caleb kemics
Both pitches. Detoured onto CC ordinary to avoid nesting birds at the very top of first pitch. Proper old skool HVS, top pitch felt every bit as hard/serious as the first. Absolute brutality, painful jams and an awesome route. Was totally unprepared for the sting in the tail, so very close to coming off but managed to yard up on a wet insecure fist jam.

If at first you don't succeed, keep hammering away at it until your climbing buddies laughter gets too much to bear and then give up. Hardly even started this one, couldn't get over the initial overhang...one for next time once I've mastered the art of hand jamming.
LeadBalloon - Lead dnf - 31/May/12 with Kelvin
Led P1 and P2. Glad to see I can still jam, classic SW jamming test piece but the rest in the niche allows a needed break on the first crack. Wasn't expecting the sting in the tail but thats what makes this a classic route.

What a fantastic route. I lead the first pitch and Stuart led the second. Once I'd figured out the crux moves at the start, it wasn't too strenuous. Very well protected and 3* quality all the way up. The second pitch has a bit of a sting in the tail, which confirms the impression as a top quality route

me 1st pitch and ben 2nd. really enjoyed leading first pitch but was hard on the hands and my left leg which i keeped raming into the crack but an awsome climb and well protected. and second ben took a good 10ft fall at the top, but has is harder than 4c. you MUST be good at hand jams and willing to loose some blood.
Jordon Fleming - AltLd O/S - 21/Jul/11 with ben darby
Dogged again. 10ft! More like 15ft! First proper lead fall right off the top. Made it afterwards though. Take big gear, you'll need it. I will get this clean one day

Hidden - AltLd - 30/Jun/11
Chris P1, Gary P2. Found first pitch tough, partly due to a lack of big gear on my harness! Also blaming it on a dodgy knee. Partner went the wrong way at the top of p2 & traversed off left along a horizontal crack then up an easy slab with a layback/finger crack rather than going up the continuation crack. Was probably the end of the top pitch of something like Central Groove.

Not sure if I missed the nice hold or something as you go over the overhang but I managed to make that seem a lot harder than 5a. Bugged out left at the top due to a serious lack of light and a distinct feeling of Deja vu.
