Super pumpy, felt off-balance for most of the route. One downclimb, 3 attempts on the crux and several rests, blooming hard work.
Fiona Reid - Lead dog - 13/Nov/11 with Mike

pumpy for a short route, took a while to commit to the crux traverse. wimp.

Very pumpy, had to rest on gear.
mcglenr25 - Lead dog - 09/Jun/11 with Remy Bertlin

Much more difficult than its appearance lead me to believe, got pretty pumped! Glad I didn't go for the solo.
MarkRoe - Lead O/S - 07/Jun/11 with Smithy

Smithy Smith - 2nd dog - 07/Jun/11 with Mark Roe

When you think you are can climb at a certain level, there is always a humbling route which informs you otherwise. Got the pump attack on this steep, polished crack climb and had to chill on my gear. Decent pro. The best move was the wide right step out and hand rail traverse to finish :) Rain and driechness forced us to move on - hopefully get back before the midgies...

Soph made a valiant effort.She'll be back..
Sean Bell - 2nd - 05/Jun/11 with Sophie Buckingham

HVS direct variant. Tough little climb. Strenuous but well protected polished climbing. direct finish looked easier than right traverse.

Didn't commit to a crucial foot jam and got pumped then rested on the gear. Very polished but good experience, enjoyed the traverse moves.
climbinmunkey - Lead dog - 12/Jul/10 with Helen

highly polished, infact almost glass like appearance, good gear, just got to power on up the crack to the jugs at the top then hand traverse out. (beta lead as sam was lowered off from the crux)

Had failed on this before and this time got it on a flying visit! Nice route, shame about the polish
Dave Warburton - Lead O/S - 11/Apr/08 with Franco Cookson

Dave got the rockboots. I got the inner boot of my Vegas. (B3 boot) We resorted to cragging after Ian and Dave's (and mine to some extent) epic on the ben. The ropes still had ice in and we had very little equipment. We had to remember the routes from the guide every night as we went to nevisport as we didn't have a guide with us and only a fiver between us for the 4 days. I shall learn next time!
