Horses for courses - definitely the hardest of over 250 VS's I've done, but jamming isn't my strong point (even worse with a healing fracture in left hand!)

Tried on lead an got put to shame. Had to ab off to get the gear so gave it a go on top rope. I can see why some people would call it VS but I evidently have a lot of work to do on my jamming.

Failed four times on lead, equally unsuccessful as a second. The only ever VS I've climbed that has shut me down.

Part 1 of dogging Higgar. Went for the lead albeit pretty nervous. Got the bulge and wasn't strong enough/balanced to take a hand off and place. Shaun and Ben then taught me a bit of there jamming wizardry but I could still only manage to dreadfully dog it on 2nd. Definitely 5a for any who can't solidly Jam!

rather tough. Got very pumped and spat out about 2 3rd's of the way up, add me to the list. Someone led through and I finsihed on the second. I'll get it next time. Bit hard to grade I felt. No move is harder than 4c/5a but EVERY move seems to be that hard which is why its so difficult. Bloody good fun though.

A mini adventure! We aimed to climb the File and would not be deterred, even by strong gusting wind and imminent rain. A sprint across the heather, shouting to be heard, Jonny led in record time making it look easy. I followed, very glad I taped my hands, excellent jams, lots for feet, a strenuous route for me. Great fun though and I'm sure we'll be back, hopefully in the warm and dry...

great route but annoyingly a had to rest twice!!!the supposed crux at the roof was easy,i found the crux to be near the top!more jamming practice needed although might be wise not to climb in extreme winds with threat of rain and a horrific hang over!glad my second enjoyed it more!

CurlyStevo ?/Aug/11 Lead

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!

Lame effort. Didn't feel particularly hard, surprised that the initial roof is the crux as that felt piss.

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...
