Start felt slightly serious and I felt this was the crux. Top groove is great!

Sustained but there is plenty of pro on offer. Small nuts lower down and lots of mediums higher up. The detonate crux can be well protected and there's a peg just bellow. Worthy of a star if not another.

Favourite lead of the evening. Interesting climbing up the hollow flakes to get some gear in. Well protected crux move up over the bulge. Then an awesome bridging exercise. A climb of three distinct sections. Great fun. Chuffed with the onsight.

E1 (easy) 5b seems more appropriate. Proper sketchy lower down. Poor gear, a few runouts and insecure moves. I will never do this again!

Enjoyed this route, care required on the bold start but the climbing was steady. Crux felt tough for 5a and the groove above was an enjoyable finish

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

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.
