Wish I'd led it. Straightforward at HVS 5c and I could have used the confidence boost after a dismal morning falling off some tough HVSs further left. Basically a series of Boulder problems with massive ledges in between. Piers's first HVS lead.

I got bloody knees, but after one big fall from the top mantel I made it, very chuffed

Got a great pic Greg's fall on 2nd Mantle. He did well to finish. Tricky first mantle, had to get a foot up.

Found the second mantel harder!, until I jettisoned my gear ontae the ledge above. Watch out for the loose very good looking handhold on the second ledge!

Great route but felt about VS 5b. 20th solo in an hour starting at crow chin and working along the crag, Originally skipped it but went back to it as it's very escapable.

Felt like VS 5b to me, the hardest mantel being the first one. The supposedly desperate mantel higher up was about 4c.

good fun mantling, with a dirty sloping crimp over 3rd shelf!
