sustained 5a all the way up
Chris Sieradzki - Lead O/S - 22/Jan/12 with Hooo
Some good technical moves, and sustained bits. Really enjoyed it on second and had no trouble, but I'm definitely not ready to lead it. A fall off the move onto the sloping ledge would almost certainly deck. I was preparing to jump backwards off a 2m drop if he fell there.
Hooo - 2nd O/S - 22/Jan/12 with Chris Sieradzki
The first 10m were basically a solo, so not soft for E1! Maybe I could have found gear with a bit more imagination... Definitely worth it for the climbing in the upper groove

what a sand bag at HVS! no good gear until two thirds up the climb, all lose rattly rock
msoldn - 2nd O/S - 03/Sep/11 with Sam
Lovely route! Gear is sketchy in the bottom part, and a bit spaced but fine after that, pretty steady 5a, lovely moves and a big feel to it!

Good lead from Sarp, recovering his head and continuing after all his nuts fell out! Lovely sequences, looked puzzling to protect. Peg seems bomber.

a tad bold at the bottom but fine from there, the upper groves are interesting and good as well. Contrasting climbing.

Fantastic - sustained and intersting moves in a great position! Didn't find much dodgy rock on the first section so maybe it's been pulled off by now - there's a few reasonable small/medium wires to protect this bit too and plenty of gear above.

Found it hard for HVS too. Quite plausibly E1 by Wye Valley standards, though I won't rush to vote it as such in case I'm just being soft!
Stone Muppet - Lead O/S - 21/Mar/07 with GD
Hidden - Lead dog - 03/Feb/07
I was surprised how hard I found this, and would agree with the suggestion that it could be E1. Quite serious for the first 30ft.
I was 17 when I first led it, I think I just assumed you were supposed to be terrified on lead.
