Braintax - Lead - 14/Sep/14

Rob Morgan - 2nd - 31/Aug/14

I wouldn't advise this for a someone new to VS leading. The total lack of gear at all (possible small cam in a pocket) from about a third of the way up until the blocks under the tree branches at the top has to make this more than VS 4c, as you would definitely deck if you fell off. More like HVS 4c I would have thought
Steve Bartle - Lead O/S - 31/Aug/14 with Rob Morgan

BicycleBradley - 2nd O/S - 17/Aug/14

A cheeky run out for VS but reasonable. Hesitated with route finding as I wasnt sure it went under the branches.

I thought it was a bit dull. Would be a bit bold without a pink tricam, as I couldn't see anything else.

Hidden - Lead O/S - 25/Apr/13

Crap gear in middle third, had to sweep for it which detracted from the climbing, some small (but positive) holds too so standard Shorn HVS IMO. Probably a doddle to second but a bad warm up with winter rustiness.

simonw1 - 2nd O/S - 07/May/06 with Allan Watson

Felt pretty hard for the grade. Some quite technical moves, particularly rock-overs towards the top. Guidebook says well-protected. On the whole this is correct, but there is a section towards the top with crap gear (I placed a dubious RP horizontally in a tiny pocket - no idea if it would have stayed there in the event of a fall though!). Rock was probably still slightly damp after rain so this may be easier when it is drier. Great climb though overall! Take lots of quickdraws.
