Puttrell at his best. This is never a V Diff, unless you're being chased by gamekeepers in tweed.

hard work, nowhere near Vdif, closer to sever and a awkward one at that.

Fairly tricky moves for VD, but only "6m" high. Alec backed off.

My guide (eastern grit) shows this as S 4b. Couldn't jam on this one, hands too big. Found laying off the right side of the crack was the obvious way to get up it. Nice route, if only a bit short

Felt really good on this one! After a little scare on Remus this really boosted the spirit! Couldnt help but grin all the way up! Great steep positions to place gear from! Too short! I spent a while hanging about on bomber jams and jugs placing un-nessisary gear just to make it feel longer! I would love to see a real beginner get dragged up this but dad managed it in quite a smooth fashion much to my dispair! I'm beginning to fall in love with this whole gritstone hand-jamming thing! Got to the top and couldn't stop smiling for the rest of the session! Well chuffed with myself! Do it now!
