Climb the obvious corner. Decent gear for the most part with some technical bridging near the top. Escapable onto Lion Cub, easier but no gear!

Really psyched to get this, though I was off. First 5b onsight? Steep and committing at the top, very good value for HVS!

No recollection of having done this route in the past but I've logged it so must have done. Nice climb with lots of bridging. Hurt my writst abseiling down lion cub which made things a little tricky, however did the route cleanly apart from aiding on one bit of gear. Fairly confident I could have done move cleanly but was close to the top and wrist was really sore.

A real psychological breakthrough for me. Absolutely laced it to make sure no repeat of 2008 (11 bits of gear). Really chuffed to get the ground up ascent. Overloaded with adrenaline by the top.

Top roped first to clean off the cobwebs/dirt. Pre-placed a couple of bits of gear one at my previous high point and one in the top corner. I'm a big chicken but didn't fancy a return visit to A&E. Might have a go ground up one day.
