Outward Bound** HVS 4c
[richard getting back to his roots, 2 kb]

Rockfax Description
A steep but juggy pitch which travels through some wild territory at the grade. Start beneath the jutting block at the overhang's widest point. Climb up to the block overhang and pull out across the roof on massive holds and with excellent gear, to a grassy ledge (possible belay). From the right-hand side of the ledge, continue up the face above, heading slightly rightwards and then back left. © ROCKFAX

Fine, knew I had to keep moving at the overhangs and so didn't place gear after the initial couple of pieces. Jugs though, not hard climbing really. Really easy after that. Think Hamish could lead this one.
andrea83 - Lead O/S - 13/May/14 with Andy

Made harder by getting one of the ropes caught under the base of the overhang and had to hang around for a while to free it with a foot. Nice climb, jugtastic.

Intended to do as a single pitch, however a lapse of concentration lead to an un-extended cam just passed the crux causing too much rope drag to get passed the optional belay ledge.

Problems pulling the rope through to thread the top two runners before swinging over the o/h. Totally pumped by then but managed to get over the bulge but couldn't reach the finishing hold. Gutted. Harry then romped up the climb with all the runners in place and no rope drag. I followed on blown arms... a very cold & windy afternoon. 9C and gusting @ 25kph! Not what was forecast.

Crikey, this was some lead. I placed a sling on a spike early on and then didn't place anything through the roof; this meant ground fall territory throughout the crux. Not my normal sort of climb. I felt bold and scared. The climbing would have been easy enough but I'm new to Granite and it hurt on my feeble skin. Seriously adventurous.

Fell on first attempt lowered off and led first pitch clean. Belayed on grassy ledge due to drag from appalling rope work on the overhang

A cool head and faith in gear required for this one.. Did the crux first time but wussed out, and jumped off. No problems second time though although maybe it is worth getting some gear in on the wall between the OH and the ledge.. (run out!!) Despite its reputation the last bit was suprisingly fun, bold on good holds. Did in 2 pitches.
