Led P2. Perhaps tiredness was setting in but we both thought this route would be a sandbag at HVS.

First pitch a bit dirty, the crux is towards the end, well protected. Second pitch has lots of jams - hands, fists, a bit of fingers, need no.4 cam for the crux at the end of the pitch.
Sean lead the first pitch, I did the second.

Flash as I was waiting for other team to finish. Take doubles for sizes 2 to 4 (C4s) otherwise be ready for runoutes.

First route at Fair Head - expected a Millstone type mauler but it proved to be a very pleasant and amenable mid-grade HVS. First pitch a bit dirty in places and has a few tricky sections requiring some traditional techniques! The top pitch is a perfect, clean jamming and bridging corner crack with plenty of rests if you need them. A few harder moves but on the whole not particularly sustained, just really enjoyable climbing with (large) gear on demand. Led P2 and 3 in one (it doesn't really make sense to belay on the sloping ledge 5m from the top given the finishing crack is all in the same line!).

Lead P1. Very nice route, swallows lots of big gear!

Climbed P1 OS, but it started to rain during belaying Nina. Had to leave orange sling there. Boulder at 3/4 of the first pitch made me climb down about 3 times. Next time I'll take 4 and 5 with me.

Slipped trying to go direct at the top... got back and realised it was way easier to finish left... D'oh. Lovely route, high in grade!
RKernan - AltLd dog - 17/May/13 with John O'Hara
Led pitches 2 and 3 run together. Felt very athletic and strenuous for HVS but maybe I'm just knackered after 5 days of climbing. Could have done with more than 1 each of sizes 3-6 dmm cams. Some sections felt very run out. Just had to throw a size 2 near the bottom of the last pitch and run to the top, just as it says in the guide!

I led the easier P1. A good lead on P2 by Pete, utilising well the largest couple of cowbells I've ever seen.
