Ian led Pitch 1, few puffs and pants, but he did a good lead on it, I nearly got the boots dangling from my rear loops stuck whist stripping the gear, so I did a few puffs and pants at exactly the same point! I did pitch 2 - just up my street, lovely layback and I even managed to place some gear whilst doing it! Loosing weight obviously has an advantage!

This is bloody embarrassing...seconded this six years ago and thought it was OK back then, so started to lead this, backed off with all my gear still on the rack. Then in my morose state set off as the second with all my gear still... I'm blaming my crap climbing on the weight of all the gear plus Rich's (the lead) stuff. Coming out of the cave I couldn't pull up and over and ended up dangling on the bloody rope. At that point I thought, sod this I'm packing it all in. I actually thought I haven't got the strength to prussic up here, I'm done for... I'm packing it in.

She was also well cool headed when her belay crab siezed and she had to climb with it still on. What a top second!

Led as one pitch, claimed an Imp off me just after the thread. Light drizzle before 2nd pitch and then drizzle for first half of climb for Nicki. Utterly bricked it when mantling off the layback, really wet and no holds. Just needed an arm and shoulder jam to calm the nerves. Also seemed to be some blood on the flake which was reassuring! Seemed a bit hard for 4c. Not ideal conditions so worth a repeat in fair weather. Brilliant climb and brilliant way to start the year.
98%monkey - Lead O/S - 01/Jan/12 with Nicki
What a fantastic climb. Fancied I could have led until I got to the layback at the flake - it was raining a little and the stone was slippy, but even dry that would have been a challenge. Will go back and lead the first pitch, at least, later this year. Brilliant start to climbing in 2012.

Excellent climb with lots of gear where you need it. In situ thread (black rope) seems to be in good condition as of 03/09/11.
Minimal rope drag by clipping right rop for last couple of bits of gear before the thread and then using left rope for the layback at the top.
Great moves in a wicked situation!

Lovely route, really enjoyed it. Not much polish either so gets my vote for better route than Vertigo. As for the grade, now either this was a very easy VS or my sport climbing has effected my trad climbing. I'm thinking after some of the routes at Tintern I've led that this was a piece of cake so maybe the sport climbing is paying off .. one way to find out, do the HVS variation next time :-)

Muny 1 me 2. Short but exciting lead for second pitch. Whole route = steep but very positive, great route - well worth its 3*. Some gear gets well lodged, dont forget your nut key. Top tip - large cams / hexes for 2nd pitch.

Led P1. Excellent, steep climbing on good holds. Suprisingly not that polished either. Classic
