Lovely route. Larger cams will make it a more pleasant lead. A really good test of your gritstone skills.

I thought Bob was going to die!!! Wasn't quite as hard as I expected. :)

The eternal battle between man and rock continues! welcome back to leading on grit: I think there's some skin left on me. Hard and fabulous.

Interesting. Lots of bird poo. Treat the chimney bit like a chimney and all is well.

I liked it, but I had the rope above me. Paul found it a bit of an epic, Ian who led it afterwards had to pull on gear for the hard move. It's a traditional (hard) VS, so beware!
