The Battle continues, this time fully decked out from the first move, but then lead clean to the top. The war is not won with this one yet!
sjbrook - Lead rpt - 30/Apr/13 with Dave Richards, PMC

Felt as hard as last time, pumpy and hard at the start then try and get to the top before the forearms fail!
Dave Richards - 2nd O/S - 30/Apr/13 with sjbrook

Very difficult start, middle alright but awkward, end technical and I'd imagine bold on lead. At least HVS 5a.
Dave Richards - 2nd dog - 16/Aug/12 with sjbrook

First ever lead fall! Very hard start, felt more like 5a/5b. Middle section is fairly straight forward 4c but the pump from the start remains. the top wall is hard again (5a), especially when tired, fell off one move from top. the holds just seem to be polished when you need them. I have climbed a few HVS 5a and this felt harder!
