Misha 25/Jul/15 Lead O/S

Fun warm up (needed it as fingers got cold in the wind), did it in one pitch without much drag at all by only placing eight runners and flicking the right hand rope once I had moved back right onto the face (Rachel had to untie it though). Only really a couple of tricky moves but some great positions and an interesting line.

Karlos 25/Jul/15 2nd dog

Led P1 clean, finding it tricky to get established on the traverse, but fine once there. On P2 after coming round onto the face I was confronted with another pair of twin ropes from another team/route crossing ours, with some gear right in the middle. Hung around for too long trying to figure out how to get though the tangle, which pumped me out for the powerful high reach right, so had to rest on rope. Bummer! Confident I could climb it clean without these distractions, next time.

jordana86 15/Jul/15 2nd
jon_gill1 11/Jul/15 2nd O/S

Scrambled to start of traverse and belayed from there. John led both pitches as i had done Whits end direct. Traverse under roof was far to easy to feel like HVS, however the top pitch was absolutely nails, especially in the rain. don't know if John went off route but it felt stupidly hard and i nearly came off,narrowly avoiding a monster whipper due to lack of gear on traverse!

Katie lead the hand traverse and I did the crux pitch. Felt pretty hard to me, but excellent climbing and some wonderful holds. Stacks of gear too. Decided to combine our rucksacks and carry up the climb. This turned out to be something of a mistake - pulling me off-balance for the traverse. It was more of a hindrance on the pumpy second pitch for Katie though! Great evening out with the crag to ourselves.
