did the vdiff direct route. finger jammed pull up around the bulge freaked me out for about 10 minutes until I managed a palmed leg up with the right hand which made things a bit easier. 1st lead on grit.

Did the direct,thought we were on a diff,so was surprised to find I had to finger jam to pull over the bulge! "that`s definitely harder than Diff Geoff,I take it all back about you needing 4 runners on a Diff!" ha ha

I've never bothered trying the diff start, it looks impossible. Always done the vdiff variation. Chimney full of bird crap but a great climb regardless.
ashaughnessy - Lead O/S - 01/Jun/06

started up the vdiff variant, backed off thinking i was well off route. nice climbing in upper half.
