Accidental part of attempted 100 Solo's in a day, meant to be limited to VDiff but - meaning to do Black Hawk Traverse left - climbed up a bit too high. It felt *very* sketchy with no protection and had to spend some time mentally recovering after before continuing the challenge.

Nice route, I think I'd have liked to do the standard version but I don't think my legs stretch that far... this was rather lacking in handholds for the step across.

quite stiff for severe, some doubt that it is different to prudence but who knows.

Andy led Black Hawk Traverse left but didn't go up the crack and carried on further left to easier climbing. I wanted to make it a bit harder so did the variation...funny little move across left using an undercut handhold while stepping across...bit balancey and difficult to move fingers from hold.

Didn't check the guidebook first (looked up and picked a free line), harder than expected, I think I went too high so the traverse was sketchy at best! Good climb with minimal faff considering I wasn't going to climb as it was damp.

Was supposed to be black hawk traverse left but Jo missed the bishops stride then got into difficulty so downclimbed and I then finished but even I felt a bit spooked moving onto the traverse, scary for a HVD!
