Struggled in the corner somewhat! Nice to see I wasn't the only one. Ended up going for the arete! Will have to go back and climb clean.

Great fun, wish I had taken up my No. 4 Camalot! Tough VS, tougher if you dont like wide cracks.

A good, satisfying route but a tough warm-up! The main corner required some strenuous arm jamming.

To the crack was really nice then the epic began. I almost backed off while trying the crack, managed to get up it but placed no gear in it as i was too busy holding on!

Thought I should try to improve my crack climbing skills. Great fun VS climbing to the Corner Crack. However really struggled getting up the corner and had to traverse to and climb the arete halfway up it. More scared/frustrated than I would have liked to have been on a VS. No good at wide crack climbing!
Stanners - Lead O/S - 24/Sep/11 with Martin Stanfield, Jack Bradbrook

Bottom is easy and quite nice. The corner is hard, very deep arm jams helped, then you can stretch out and snag the arete to your right near the top. Cool though :)

Upper corner was difficult - quite polished, although a bomber hex placement helped! I climbed the wall right of the corner, while Pete laybacked on good holds deep in the crack!

yeah, great climb. corner crack is easier if you have long arms cos you can a) reach the jug halfway up the inside of the crack with your left hand and b) the massive juggy edge on the arete to the right. A number 1 nut will wiggle and wedge in a little notch on the left hand face of the corner crack. Otherwise you must depend on a big cam (min 3.5). There's no other gear here.

Great quality route. Should have 2 stars in the book.

Found this quite hard - first proper offwidth... Found the crack a bit desperate. Lovely day!
Ewan Richards - Lead O/S - 02/Jun/09 with Tara

Should of taken hexes - put gear in up to about 5/6 meters. Nothing big enough for the remainder unitl the easy scrambling at the top.

My legs are too long to get be able to get my foot on crucial hold without pushing myself off - solution... knee pointing down and using the top of the toe!
