JenShelley - 2nd - 04/Oct/15 with Mike

Done as a link up, first two pitches of isengard followed by final two of samba pa ti. Solo p1. Jenny led p2, felt like at least e1 for me seconding. Solid lead. I led p3, amazing steep climbing on great holds. Jenny p4.
MichaelGallimore - AltLd O/S - 04/Oct/15 with JenShelley

Big block came off the first roof as I pulled over - clearly a well used handhold, although I doubt the route is any harder. Very fortunate not to hit anybody below at the start of Elim A and Giant's Crawl. Great care required!

Freezing at cave belay - note to self - wear more clothes if you want to feel your fingers on the climb! Still a great experience and the climbing finishes so close to the summit so nice to go and look at the views as well.

Brilliant juggy fun. Wish I'd led the crux pitch instead of seconding it now.

Soft E2 I think but nice moves through steep ground. Personally didn't think it was particularly bold. Pulled off a massive block close to the top of the main pitch which fortunately missed everyone below. There are other loose blocks here though so take care!

rucksack and not being able to feel fingers (cold) didn't help.

tim newton - AltLd O/S - 05/Sep/10 with misha nepogodiev

Seconded this. Nice pitch, great positions, would have been a bit intimidating to lead. E1 with a couple of bold 5b moves, so soft E2. Wonder where the name comes from. Led Isengard to get to the start, which was an interesting pitch, quite hard for HVS.
Misha - 2nd O/S - 05/Sep/10 with Tim Newton

Got over the overhang and bottled it since i was knackered so backed off and finished up a combination of eliminate a and rib slab and chimney
Andrew Wilson - Lead dnf - 30/Aug/10 with Mark Fyles

Awsome pitch, great exposure.
Shaw Brown - Lead - 27/Jun/10 with Conan

bubbles gave a it couple of good goes taking a couple of sizeable lobs...the gear he put in up to the base of the groove helped, nearly didnt carry on but pushed on through the fear and the pump! awesome route, exposed and a little dirty but that made it even better! route finding little tricky...sweet
