The Capt placed all the gear on lead & then backed off crux move. I finished off on lead. Not a true lead for full route. Capt seconded & retrieved gear.

Bloody hell, I'm STILL not strong enough for this after a year of E1! It may partly have been the heat sapping my strength, but I still think this is a hard one!

Big holds and good gear - felt pretty soft at the grade.

Harder than I was expecting for HVS on the solo. Made the cross through move and wasn't sure how to top it out, started to get pumped, couldn't reverse it but luckily a couple of other climbers told me where the holds were, which was nice.
Ropeboy - Solo - 09/May/09

Fell off top move. Shook out. Finished, annoyed.

"Are you ready for the fall?" "NO" "well GET ready!" One to come back to when I'm a bit stronger.
jonny taylor - Lead dnf - 29/Jun/08 with Andy B

Good route but short and sharp and not at all easy for HVS, much harder than Tiger's Feet....
Chad123 - AltLd O/S - 29/Jun/08 with Emily

Messy messy climb ! took many attempts to progress and get gear in. The alcove at the top caused many problems ! Cameron managed to put the majority of the gear in with a sound cam placement !
tony830 - Lead dog - 10/Jul/07 with Cameron Primrose

Had to rest on the gear one move from the top, gutted. Vow to return and complete unfinished business...
