Fell off trying some silly thrown heel hook the first time. Started again with a more sensible approach, but still needed some work to get round the arete.

After a lunch break examining the route we plucked up the courage to try it. Both me and Dan had a go at the crux move without having placed any protection because of a combination of rope drag and not wanting to get pumped. On my second attempt I managed to get over the crux, and placed the one piece of protection in the whole second half of the climb. Exhilarating and fun, I was amazed it didn't get any stars in Peak SE.

Hidden - 2nd β - 30/Nov/12

Tried earlier in the day and greased off, went back at the end of the day when it had cooled down and felt steady, didn't realise that bridging was 'in' either. I had done the finish previously when soloing around on the wall. I think a tricky hvs is more suitable although my guidebook has it down as an E1.

Better to do without a rope, with a mat and then avoid the smash/swing into the chimney?

Tricky traverse.
Andrew Barker - Solo β - 2006 with Curly Ben Harding

Brilliant route, deserves more praise. I disagree somewhat with the comments in the Chatsworth guidebook and its ommision from PGE. Contrived? The traverse out of the V cleft and onto the slab are lovely technical moves.
