Snap - Lead O/S - 28/Mar/10 with Matt

More like Severe, I think. Tricky move above gear (toyed with the idea of using holds out right).

Don't do it if you're a beginner! More like a severe, definitely not a VDiff anyway and not very well protected.

Vdiff!!! I don't think so. Slipped on one of the somewhat tenuous moves up the slab. The VS next to it is easier!

beckybray1 - 2nd - 2009

ouch...a Northumberland V Diff that perhaps needs regrading.. probably the grade suites on a top rope/seconding but very little gear....i agree it feels more like a severe.
