Great fun. I took the 1st and last pitch. In hindsight I should have run the 1st two pitches together and give lawernce the final pitch.

One of The best vs/hvs routes I've done. I did the first and second pitches in one. Kc had the pleasure of the top. Gutted he bagsy the last pitch. It was mind blowing on second. Well done mate. U nailed it to.

Not sure if the variation start requires going straight up after gaining the overhang, or traversing out right. I did the latter.

Accidentally led this thinking it was Little Brown Jug. Nice moves but not HVS. P1 only then onto Doorpost.

Apparently I did the Hard start...well who would have thought it. Soft touch at HVS, two good runners above your head as you make the move. The old guide book says 4b, but it ain't that either. VS 5a for the variant.

Led second pitch. Direct start is quite tough but well protected. Gareth took a big fall off the last move of the final pitch ending up upside down. Shocked but unscathed!
andybenham - AltLd O/S - 25/Sep/10 with Gareth Hayfield

Led 1st pitch, not too bad. Then fell right at the top about 20ft head first. wimped out and walked off along the ramp to the left. Why did I jam??
