<< East of Sweden

The bulging wall and arete to the left of East of Sweden. A few stiff pulls lead to an overlap on the right. Undercut rightwards then reach up to a good flake hold. One last reach gets you to good incuts just under the break and then a rest. The meat of the upper arete is one big reach between good holds.

DorsetGareth - Lead dog - 01/Apr/14 with Ben Sutton

Got to left hand on the under cut, right hand up, then get small flake with left hand and reach upto where the bolt is. Couldn't stick it.
tarn - Lead dnf - 30/Mar/14 with Tom Coyles Gould

Wow found the crux super hard! In fact had to aid past it :-(. Maybe it was the cold who knows. Maybe I'm just a weak punter.
monsteratt - Lead dog - 30/Nov/13 with Philippa

Second go after reading the crux poorly, went easy second go, very odd move. hard 7b. should have flashed it, must say im kinda liking this wye valley stuff.. might have to give the south wales scene a miss for a wile

Really good - thought crux was tough for 7b, but then the hard climbing was quite short lived. In a session (about an hour).

Hidden - TR dnf - 22/Jun/10

Went suprisingly smoothly after figuring out the moves, great sequence up to the thrid bolt, full on rest on the ledge breaks it up a bit oddly though.

I climbed crux and beyond on lead and fell whilst going for a easy move which I couldn't see due to "bad light" (the sun straight in me face, curses.
maffujones - TR RP - 23/Jul/09

Took a real team effort to unlock the beta.
gejones - Lead RP - 23/Jun/09 with Daf/SamB

added a sit-start! couldn't resist! start on mega undercut turn purple pulling off floor straight to side pull utilise a toe in undercut and gain first hold!! Affectionately known as 'Winnys Assis' We've after much debate given her font 4b+ as I got the whole link up first go! ha ha
