First attempt - fell off near top of crack due to failed hand jam
Dassie - TR dog - 03/Jul/10 with Self belay with shunt

Success at second attempt. A very nice route that I would like to repeat.Reckon it would make for a very satisfying lead. A good workout for arms and fingers on the laybacks but are some decent rest spots.

Hardest HVS I've ever done - moves are there but unless you are small and light or super strong it's gonna hurt...
evhall - Lead dog - 16/Jun/09 with Jerzy + Mike

A difficult HVS that follows a leftward angled curved crack with a particularly difficult bit getting over a bulge. Glad Claire lead it!
