HVS / E1 hard 5a. Massive block has come off from 10 meters up the groove. Still climbable at the same grade, now with a new mantleshelf move. pheotleyr - Lead RP - 28/Nov/13 with Mike
Looks like a fridge sized block has come off from 10 meters up the ramp. Route now has a new mantleshelf move instead of an overhang ?

Very nice, only that horizontal break was full of mud. Dan went on for the 5c clip-up of Motorway Madness at the top, which was a tad too hard for me to 2nd.

although the conditions greatly improved I still didn't have my head quite in the right place. Great route but personally found it a bit spicy. Hard E1 soft 5b in my opinion but since no one else agrees I'll put it down to having a poor leading head today. Quality short 2nd pitch. Used up nearly all my gear on my pitch and had to use rope around the thread. 2*
Stanners - AltLd O/S - 18/Mar/12 with James Rich, Jack Bradbrook
Good route, first pitch was pretty cool and I managed to find a no hands knee bar about 2/3rds of the way up, crux seemed rather reachy, even for me although maybe I was just climbing quite fast and missed something I was meant to find.
I then led pitch 2 which was short but sweet!
Quarryboy - AltLd O/S - 18/Mar/12 with JamesRich, Rob Stanfield
Surprised at the quality of this, especially the top half which was juggy and steep.

Honestly didn't think any of this was 5b (though I am tall). Also contrary to the guidebook, didn't think any of it was run out (and I am a wuss). A solitary nut placement on the headwall? I had 3 nuts and 2 cams!

In 1, with detour into Hocus to fetch some gear. The jammed wire you can see from the ground (not mine, really is jammed. Needs chiselling, or nut keying and hexing.
