HS? Never! VS atleast! Tricky starting moves, I did a layback then a bit of a lunge for the break which luckily was good, moved up and right (onto the steepest section) and proceded to pointlessly pump myself out trying to place gear! What was I doing? Put so much weight on my arms for no reason. Moved up and left pumped out of my mind, was hoping from a jug over the lip but no joy! Reveresed down and had to have a rest on gear which was luckily good and not too far away. Went up and down again. Third time I found the good hold and got myself over with easy, quick mantle up and over the next bit. Bolts at the top oddly? My dad proceeded to fail on the start and I ended up having to ab for gear (which involved some penduluming!). Good climb, I'll do it clean sometime soon.
