Slack rope, really quite difficult move and very little of much use for the feet. A while before I lead this one!

Great climb, just couldn't nail the move over the bulge, foot wouldn't stay on the smear.

Scary fun, maybe shouldn't have soloed this one!! The VS grade is a joke as the crux IS 5b and if a leader was to come off it, they would hurt themselves! HVS+/E1 5b.

Veray reachy move mid way. Scottish rock guide book VS5b

one move that requires large nuts, can be protected with small nuts!

VS 5b should be fall-offable all day should it not? If you come off the crux of that - which is 5b - you're going to hurt yourself as there is nae gear at all until the break. The crux is getting to the break... E1 5b.

Where is the overhead protection? At least E1.
Ian Jones - TR β - 03/Oct/09 with Walter Robison, sam wood and iceicebaby
