Found my head wasn't in the right place, climbing no too tough but felt bold, even on second.

Fun climbing, quite technical but not unfair for HVS. A few wet patches spiced things up.

Excellent engaging climbing the whole way. Wish it hadnt been plastered in chalk by the previous party though. Bomber gear where you need it. Crux for me was the wet groove below the 2nd overhang, cut down on foothold options somewhat. Probably high end HVS, harder than Malbogies I thought?

Tough at HVS and the tricky move looked very bold - with or without large cams.

really nice stress free climbing. decent protection at regular intervals and no stopper moves, just quite balancy in places. got attacked by wasps on the way down when i abbed through a nest!

Very balancey and delicate climbing. Better than Malbogies?

Found this very much upper end for the grade. A thorough warm-up though! Nice one James.
Stanners - 2nd O/S - 17/May/12 with James Rich, Jack Bradbrook
Found the crux both bold and technical however it would have been better protected if I had taken some micros and some smaller cams.

Just goes to show that even on a bold HVS hexes can sometimes be of use.

First proper HGV of the season - felt harder than it used to!

Quite a good route. Requires some concentration on a couple of sections.

Decent gear, never too strenuous, but makes you think most of the way. Neat feet the answer, nice route and not as polished as I expected.
Amazing day for late November, the team across from us were climbing in shorts!
Arranging a solid belay at the start isn't easy, cracks either side of a scarily mobile block, or dicey scrambling up to a decent cam slot that can be extended were the options, I heard there used to be a reasonable tree.
The Ivanator - 2nd O/S - 27/Nov/11 with Stewart
Good moves that focus on footwork

Just wasn't able to relax into this one and found it rather trying. One hold came off in my hand and another was so obviously loose I wouldn't touch it.

Johny decided to lead this it was write on the top of his grade, he found it hard didn't want to commit to step across after frist overhang. So he came down and I took over to be fair thought it was hard for HVS not sure if it cause I wasn't used to the climbing first time climbing here this year. The step across easy 5b and the levatate threw second overhang hard 5b need good footwork. Brill route. After all that it was so hot really hot we decided to run off and find shade
Dale - Lead O/S - Jun/11 with johny
Cool route. Almost gave this two stars. A few delicate moves, couple of airy steps, but nothing too strenuous. Abbed off on 46m of rope - just about made it to the belay ledge.
