Babybear - 2nd O/S - 29/May/12 with papabear, mamabear

Lush climb after work in warm sunshine. Great starting moves and the rest was a joy - great foot and hand holds. Well done to Babybear and as for Papabear - I love you! :-)
Laura Parker - Lead O/S - 29/May/12 with Alex Parker

went up last, behind babybear, after mamabear lead. very exposed start and an awesome climb! comforting holds for hands and feet during a climb that leaves you feeling very open! the first pitch of eden crack to get there is disappointing, even for a mod.

Climbed almost in the dark, turned out to be a mini end of the day epic had done the normal version with Dave Elder in the past so did the VS 4c variation this time.

Pulled off a couple of HUGE blocks! Thankfully managed to control their descent to avoid any accidents but there's still probably some loose stuff on the second pitch.
