having got out of bed only to be f**ked over by remus who thought it would be funny to a) make me lead it. b) only place two cams even though there is gear everywhere. c) fill the top section with the remaining cams so there was no room for jams.. had to try hard not to chunder all over the route. awkward ukc threads would have followed starting "the hungover mess...." headed home soon after remus had a short attempt at the rasp direct.

very happy to get this clean, hands are a bit scratched but actually much better than expected! Timed this just right it was a challenge and a proper fight but doable. Grade wise well to keep in sync with grit HVS cracks I can see why it gets vs and the hardest move is mid grade 4c tops, but after a lot of thought I can't see why HVS 4c wouldn't also be appropriate, there doesn't seem to be any/many of these on grit with good gear (but way too many vs 4b), I'd see it in the well protected but pumpy swanage style! Anyway whatever the grade it was a great route!

Fancied the climb but wasn't feeling strong enough to take it on as a lead so when I got the opportunity to second to strip the gear I jumped at the chance. Glad I did, awesome climb, great moves though quite sustained and therefore strenuous. Found the crux straightforward but the last moves towards the top with pumped arms were hard going. What a buzz to get up it!!! Cheers to Jim for leading it and giving me the opportunity to take it on!

I thought this was very hard. Placed gear above the bulge then downclimbed for a rest. Easy enough to place and haul on the jams (I'm slowly improving at this major weakness), but tricky to get over the bulge, and strenous. Happy enough to call it VS though it's pretty brutal at the grade. Certainly harder than lots of the E1s I've done!

Did the initial roof OK, but then got pumped on the upper crack. Got the jug at the top of the crack, but then needed a rest, place a final Friend, another rest, then finish. Great moves, great jams, great gear. Love to go back and lead it clean when stronger.

Becky E - 2nd dog - 21/May/09 with Ian PCC
Lame effort. Didn't feel particularly hard, surprised that the initial roof is the crux as that felt piss. Unfortunately, the MASSIVE wind made it rather uncomfortable and completely destroyed moral so I came down after getting feet onto the break; just wasn't fun. Should have saved it for a better day.
Southern Man - Lead dnf - 09/May/09 with Caroline
One of a couple of 'proper' VS's in the Peak! Absolutely classic hand mincing stuff, great if you love jamming. Did it in a howling bitter wind, hands were so cold was in agony after topping out! Really enjoyed it...

awesome route. fell at crux but safe as houses. not VS 4c
gb83 - Lead dog - 21/Jan/09 with I.Killey
Only just 4c if you can Jam. Definately VS - the only reason this could get more is if you can't jam and are weak i.e. unable to place gear. You could put in gear every 5 inchs if you wanted to... of course then you wouldn't be able to climb the route...

Ian & Liam struggled up this - taking over an hour between them. By their own addmission they don't jam at all so it was hardly surprising. Personally it was right in my territory and I loved it. Solid VS 4c for jammers, harder for those who are not used to the Black Arts.
