Fell off the crux once trying to take the same route the tall people used...unsuprisingly I can't reach those holds so need to do something different. Will get it clean next time.

Quite hard for HVS 5a. If you don't have big span then the crux involves some trickery. Placed some truely keech gear on upper groove.

Utterly, ludicrously undergraded. At least 5c; long reach for finger holds off shiny foot holds. Clearly a lot of people are a lot stronger than they think.

Polished to shiny finish in places - particularly underneath roof (crux) so careful choice of footholds is helpful. Not convinced this is easier than Piglet - if anything found it a bit more tricky due to polish!
RobScotland - 2nd O/S - 14/Oct/07 with Dougie

Started up Piglet, didn't like the look of the polished crux so escaped up this.
