Gibbo - Lead - 06/Apr/15 with Tom Sutherland
Great fun as second, I think I would have found the lead a bit desperate. Two sections of laybacks off flakes with no chance to place gear. At least I didn't have to stop and take any out!
Hooo - 2nd - 21/Mar/15 with Chris Sieradzki
First lead since last summer. Felt very stiff.
Beginning of season and recently dislocated finger didn't help

Have done this many times. I start up the crack and move into the L crack where the R closes down, then back. To me, this is the natural line.

Mayaculpa - 2nd - 05/Oct/13 with Peter
Great climb with lots of gear, lots of full rests and no proper 5a move, so somewhat soft at HVS. Can still get a bit pumpy though if you decide to place yet another piece of gear instead of just going for it too often.
pheotleyr - Lead O/S - 05/Oct/13 with Mike
First half led on Matt's gear after he backed off the lead. Sustained and physical climbing, had to work hard for a clean lead. Previously seconded.
The Ivanator - Lead rpt - 01/Sep/13 with Matt
Started on the lead. Got to the main ledge and bailed off a good cam and a small nut. Found it very strenuous on the second. Definitely some 5a moves in there. Gear seemed largely ok apart from the hollow flake at the top.

Climbed during a very wet spell of weather, in pouring rain after going stir crazy waiting for good weather. Looked from the ground like just the first section was totally soaking. In fact most of the holds higher up were soaking too! Satisfying to complete a route like this in the wet. Good pro.
Chris Sansum - Lead rpt - 16/Jun/12 with Tony Smith
V good route, plenty of gear, more like 5a not 4c, I'd say two of the c.three cruxes are 5a. Quite sustained but agreeable; good rock mostly.

Gibbo - Lead - 25/Oct/11 with Ollie Keynes
this never let up from the very start, moves kept throwing themselves at you so became very sustained and quite pumpy. bomber kit all the way and gets quite steep. sure there was a 5a move in there somewhere or maybe it was the pump making it feel harder. brilliant none the less
stvredmond - Lead - 01/Sep/11 with Helen Norris
Brilliant climbing but just keeps packing a punch all the way up. Doesnt let up. Glad I was only seconding it.
Helnorris - 2nd - 01/Sep/11 with Steve Redmond
Tough. I had to aid near the top having already rested on the rope. Arms were fully pumped from strenuous first half.

Another enjoyable route; a slightly awkward start gives way to typically good climbing and a fairly bold move at around 3/4 height.

Very good route, feels a bit more like 5a if you follow the flake all the way, its more like 4c if you mantel after the grassy ledge off to the right

This route finishes as per Cardiac does. As we were were short of time we opted for a top rope, lowered each other off and then climbed back up again. A great route - would be a tricky, demanding lead for me. Did swing at one point which put me back on route! Found a size 6 nut.
