Hidden - 2nd O/S - 27/Sep/14

Section/s of sustained jamming/laybacking, but loads of gear and not too desperate to place. Top was perplexing, ended up moving few feet left to a wider crack then traversing back across. There was chalk on the wall but none in the corner crack itself so I can't be alone in skipping this bit!

found this really hard as i had only a few days before had my hand jamming revelation. solid 5b from the word go. 3 or 4 really good rests and you will be glad of them! really involved climbing with all sorts of moves and really pumpy regardless of the bridging. One fall removing a stuck cam as a jam gave out on me :( we both moved left at the top as the holds were well worn here and if you had to finish straight up the crack it would probably warrant e2. An amazing route that i will be back for!!

maazin! really hard work all the way up, gives you just enough time to recover one part of your body before the next bit starts screaming in agony. Also has an awesome layback in the middle of all that bridging and jamming.

Didn't find it too bad. Sustained 5a with a 5b move around half way. Not quite an onsight because I did try it about a year and a half ago, but I couldn't remember anything of it this time, except for having backed off after a few meters. Satisfying to come back and make short work of it.

Johns' epic lead of the trip. Bloody excellent route and definitely one to return and lead once comfortable at E1. Some excellent layback moves. Belay at the top is iffy given the dodgy crack in the boulder that widens when you add a cam.
