[Lonny on the excellent Bollard Edge, 3 kb]"A must-do" Steep, committing climbing, but with good gear, and in a brilliant position. Place good gear, then commit to the crux sequence, and from there either finish gracefully, of wobble up the juggy arete

Determined to get to the top without falling after being dropped on the first climb of the day... Lovely climb, with just a little echo of Elvis' foot...

one of the best vs's around. a fantastic sequence of well protected moves on steep rock in a great position
Alex@home - Lead O/S - 05/May/07 with neil

First onsite VS A couple of brown trouser moments, would probably have been fine if I thought it was HS. Made one more move upwards before going across for the crux, which i found a lot easier, the top is easy, i just got a bit un-nerved!
