Led first pitch of Meshach (which was crap in my opinion, don't understand how the whole thing gets 3 stars), then Alan did a brilliant lead (his first or second HVS?) up through the crux roof to the Piton, but then didn't fancy his chances and lowered off back to the belay and we swapped ends. I got up to the piton easily but then was a bit mystified where to go from there (not having read the guidebook for this pitch (!)) and just went straight up. Completely unprotected 5b/c climbing with only the small wires+piton for protection lower down. Sketchy! I had no idea what I had climbed until I found this on UKC.

Accidentally topped out on this (while thinking it was a bit run out for HVS). Lovely finishing sequence (limited gear) and plenty of hands off rests.

michael the hero lead this by mistake after trad climbing for less than a year... cluster of rp's at base of flakey crack then fire up it on small edges. Borderline 5c getting established but probably closer to 5b, a lovely move tho! (lanked by michael ;) )

Brilliant climbing. Done by mistake instead of the normal Meshach finish. E2 due to complete lack of gear

Led the first pitch. Lawrence accidentally did the Rattlesnake finish on the second pitch, which needed some delicate footwork.

We thought we were on the HVS, by the time dan worked it out it was too late to back track! wicked climb though :)

Did Rattlesnake finish by accident, didn't feel like 5c, maybe because I thought I was on an HVS.

Superb climbing. Also the start - direct up the rib past some vegetation. Beautiful tiptoeing moves on very good rock

Thought I was on HVS, so a bit scary topping out, but absolutely brilliant!
Julie Carroll - Lead O/S - Jun/11 with Paul Williams

Another good route, better than messach in my opinion more direct line. only one 5c move but don't fall as the micros will probally rip and u'll be going a long way.

the rattlesnake finish is about E1 5b. rather than the E2 5c stated in the book... its also pretty well protectable with small wires. easier than expected (kept on thinking there was gonna be some 5c move coming up:)
