In the dark. Pretty hard for vdiff!

Started round to the left

This is much harder than v.diff, the face pitch is an unprotected 4c move, the arete is unprotected 4b and the wall is protectable but still about 4b.

ridiculous at V Diff! Both partners had to tug on sling i put round boulder on first ledge, only one of em got up it! No gear on arete and even top wall a bit tricky. Excellent fun though.

Started on lead, bottled it and went round the back to set up first runner, started again from the bottom. Very awkward start, trying to place gear blind in a flared crack. HS 4b?

To make this V Diff you need to start round to the left. But the rest of the route is severe anyway. Unless you have a good selection of small to medium cams this will be a solo. But it's quite an enjoyable route.

Really nasty start, went round the side instead. Probably didn't do the correct route, but it felt much harder than VD

Simon Caldwell 02/Aug/09 Lead O/S

I tried to follow the line in the Rockfax topo, but this wasn't VDiff so maybe it's wrong. The initial face would have been at least 4c I think, but I backed off and went up by the arete. The middle section was OK but probably 4a/b. And the final wall was 4b/c. Given that it's effectively a solo I'd have thought a grade like HS 4a or even VS 4b was more appropriate - but the lack of any other comments leads me to think I didn't take the easiest line!

agree with simon - no way is this vd, and poorly protected as well.
