[Blast shot hole to be followed, 1 kb]32m. The long, straight borehole with a crack in it. Spaced protection and some loose rock. Not a particularly safe route, but safer than some of the routes further to the right!

Climbed up putting two bits of gear in, massive nice crack for the third, gave it a settling tug and pop huge flake just moved (everything's a bit loose so I had checked it) looked for something else around and there's nothing stable, climbed a bit higher looking for protection but it was all just super loose. Being pretty run out I did a tricky traverse to a tree and used it as an anchor to ab off. Tryed life in limbo to recover gear though it looks like the start has fallen away recently and was just as loose, quick walk to an ab and back to the west end!

Started on this one, but backed off as nothing was stable. Grabbed a large flake that looked like it would be a good spot for my first bit of protection and it came away in my hand. Everything thing else I thought looked like a good hand hold also broke away. Don't know if this climb has deteriorated in the recent heavy rain, but it needs some serious clean-up attention.

Uberpussy - Lead O/S - 25/Apr/11

32m. No hard moves but sustained, a bit chossy, and with spaced protection in places. Could this be Severe?
