xusa - 2nd O/S - 09/Jul/15 with John jones

A fine expedition. P1 hard for the grade even when you've worked out where it goes. P2 pleasant. To get bottom of P3 required an additional 2 intermediate pitches to avoid the rope jamming when tunnelling beneath the block. P3 gave good climbing on positive holds but appeared very little travelled. P4 was outstanding but severely undergraded with steep and sustained climbing that even required a heel hook to ensure success! I would vote VS 4c. At least it's well protected, provided you can hang on to place the gear.

Went up Gemma (HVS) by mistake and had to fairly desparate traverse left to the Yew tree. Don't get the two lines mixed up! Bailed out on the top of the second pitch due to rain.

Don't get this route and the HVS Gemma mixed up... or you will have 2 very unhappy students. Had a tricky traverse from the crux of Gemma to a large yew tree.
