Surprisingly pumpy

ColinD 14/May Lead dnf

Hesitated below chockstone, knackered.... lovely, will be back.

jonhowson 09/Apr Lead G/U

Surprisingly pumpy, messed up the top and fell off - silly. Easy second go.

JamieSparkes 12/Mar Lead O/S

At the curbar end of the HVS grade. A steeper version of froggatt's Broken crack.

Neil led. Can see why I had to have a rest on this when I tried it. The move in the middle is genuinely quite tough for HVS, moreso if you hesitate at all.

Had to rest on this. Very disappointing as it is a superb route. Sustained 5a, not really 5b as per Rockfax.
