Ticklists: Wintours Leap easy multipitch, 100 best limestone climbs in Britain.

I led pitches 1 and 4; pitch 1 was scary. Guide-book says "just" VDiff rather than S, and I think that is right. Martin led 2 (S version) and 3.

Seconded P1, abseiled off due to darkness... With Sketchy Will

wjcdean 30/Nov/13 Lead dnf

got half way up P1 to peg then abseiled off as it was getting dark (spent ages trying and failing to do S start before giving up and going on the VD). Decided wanted gear back so went back up, lead whole pitch to the tree and ab'd off in the dark. Quite amusing in hindsight.

Climb was dripping wet in places. Had to tread a little carefully on the slab. Opted for the 'VS 5a' final pitch. No way it is VS 5a though! More like HS 4b. Pitch 1 on the VS is far harder, and would probably merit 5a.

Did this as a roped solo to try out the technique. Worked fine, although time-consuming (took 3.5 hours for the four pitches), as the technique involves climbing the pitch, abbing while cleaning the gear, then climbing the pitch a 2nd time. Took a more or less direct line, following the severe corner on pitch 2, and climbing up the borehole on pitch 4.
