Some nice climbing, and quite hard if you stay dead center but it would be very brainless on the lead.

Smelly Fox - Lead O/S - 13/Apr/15 with Matt Thompson

I thought this felt bold for HVS so not surprised to see it on here at E1. Hard move low down for the short then lovely technical climbing above. Shame the line isn't more independent as it detracts somewhat.

wrapped in bacon - 2nd O/S - 14/Aug/12 with Daryl

after backing off acheron, so reused lower gear. quite a long run out on crux section although gear below it is good. found it quite unnerving!

Some approximation to this route anyway. Strayed left onto Louisiana rib near the bottom, but kept the direct line higher up

Maybe I did this wrong, but it felt very hard in the grade. Placed gear in the second break and that was it until I reached the place where it joins the VS. A number of thin moves between gear.
