Led to rescue Matt's gear. I didn't really fancy it, especially after Matt's struggles but it went OK. Tricky move at the top. Overall I think it is a straightforward climb with a few tiring moves.

Jumped on this as my warm up climb for the day (slightly optimistic?). Initial section is pumpy as hell because of the polish, I didn't trust a single hand or foothold for the first 5m it was that bad. Once past that the route gets easier the higher up it gets (seems to be a feature of this crag?). Gear was generally good. Ace route!

Excellent. Thought the start was the hardest bit and the rest was good juggy crack climbing with perfect gear. Not as polished as people make out and certainly makes it no harder or detracts from the climbing.

alaster tonge 03/Aug/14 Lead dnf

Hard climb. Polished crack. My dog barked and barked when I was half way up and people arrived and stopped right next to us. We had had the cliff to ourselves all day at that point. Wished they had moved on, in a panic to let Assad calm the dog down, I rested on a nut that came out when the large flake it was behind moved a few mm. I fell about 9m and was just caught enough to hit the ground gently at the end of rope stretch. Teaches me to trust to minimal levels of protection on this kind of rock! The rock can move... I want to come back.

Tried to do this as my first HVS (stupid idea!), got about 4 metres up and backed off. Nice to finally get it done. Doesn't let up at all!

My first HVS second, second time ever climbing!

Jon Bleiker
DrGav 15/Oct/06 2nd

Lower section is quite thin and has some serious polish on a critical foothold. Slipped a couple of times, then actually popped off. Quite thin hand jams at the bottom even though it does ease up to around 5a. Hard for the grade!

David Martin 14/Oct/06 Lead dog

Second time outdoor climbing, first time HVS and on-the-job learning how to layback - fun.

Very good climb, polished in parts and tests a few different climbing techniques

Mark_RMC 30/Jul/06 Lead

A sustained, physical climb with a lot of finger jamming. One of the hardest cimbs I had done at the time. Simon Turner, failed to second it.

Nice climb. Real tricky and polished start to some bold moves in the middle section. Jugs towards top prove a relief for tired arms!

Pleasing HVS tick classic of Shorn Cliff! Good gear & not too pumpy

Knacked arms by the stance 3/4 way up. Very tough on the arms.
