Pickpocket** HVS 5a
[rob climbing pickpocket, 2 kb]

Rockfax Description
Another enticing climb in a similar mold to The Brink of Solarity but slightly tougher, and with a bold start. Start at the base of a long thin crack 5m right of the vegetated corner.
Climb carefully to good wires at 7m and then take the well-protected remainder of the crack to a double bolt lower-off just beyond where the crack curves left and fades. © ROCKFAX

Worthwhile protection is quite high, looks like what used to be first nut slot at about 6m has been broken for some time. Residual slot should take a micro cam though - if like me you're not carrying one, gear at about 8m is the first.

Hidden - 2nd - 02/Apr/11

With beta as I'd just belayed Monkey for his lead. Bottom section a bit thin on gear, but a fair amount after that. Unfortunately I made very bad use of it.. at the first crux I managed to drop two thirds of my medium nuts down the crag, causing my helpful belayer to offer to throw them back up. Unfortunately he throws like a retard and managed to toss them in to a nearby tree instead. By the time I reached the top 3rd of the route (using only the large nuts and micros I had left) I realised I only had 1 quickdraw renaining. Finally got to the top above some pretty large run outs, along the way having placed my bunches of nuts in placements where they didn't really fit properly and clipping their krabs. Apparently the climbing is quite nice. I can't remember for some reason.

Scary highball bouldering start! Bit of a shocker after the well protected HVS at places like wintours. Great route tho and plenty of it..
