Heaven Can Wait HS 4b
38m, 2 pitches. P1 18m 4b. Start right of Om Puri, just right of where the lower overlap meets the ground. Climb to a break in the overlap and continue to the terrace.
P2 20m 4a. Walk left along the terrace to the corner which bounds the rectangular slab on its left. Climb the corner and the arete above: then trend left to finish.

Not advisable in one pitch on 50 m rope (ended up having the second climb up a bit and tying the ropes into all the slings I had). Got a black offset stuck below the overlap.

Straight forward climb, nice enough. Belayed from below the top on second pitch as nothing close to clip into! Lots of loose looking boulders at top of second pitch.

Did P1 of Heaven Can Wait (lead) and P2 of the VS above it (second). Various loose bits about - caution re: the block at the edge of the arete as you near the top of P1.

Climbed as one pitch. Bit sketchy with all that slack hanging over the large terrace, but easy enough.

Finish left by the sapling. Spaced gear on second pitch. Horrible fall potential, but easy moves. Incredibly loose finish.

Hidden - Lead - 06/Dec/12

Both pitches, Top pitch is pretty run out, the rock in the groove is pretty rubbish and takes wires reluctantly. Trundled a load of blocks around a sapling at the very top but there are still quite a few loose blocks.

With more direct start, and second pitch up the corner all the way. 18m HS 4a, 8m walk left, 21m 4a.
bpmclimb - Lead rpt - 22/Aug/11 with Clare

Not sure if it is this route, but up the centre of the blank but easy angled slab to an overlap with a diagonal crack. Straight over this and up to the terrace over loose ground. Didn't do top pitch, but first pitch was technically easy (VD?) but without much gear. Maybe Severe?
James Moyle - Lead O/S - 22/Jun/11 with piers cunliffe, D. Murphy

direct start which is much much better
Urgles - Solo O/S - 04/Jun/11

First time on second pitch. Same start as Om Puri pitch 2, boldly up the rectangular slab to the good horizontal crack. Stand up in this; then step left to the small arÍte. Up this, pass left of a sapling, and trend left to finish just right of another sapling. 22m, 4b.
