Very enjoyable. Jugs all the way, pretty much. Not as pumpy as anticipated as there are a couple of opportunities for rests. Finished up the corner as couldn't remember if slab finish was on right or left.
Oh yeah - and there was a pro photographer there shooting for a new guidebook. Photos only 'average', apparently, but you never know!

on Alex's gear, with the E1 finish up the slab felt pretty steady for HVS if you're used to steep ground then a sketchy 5b topout after the slab.

Milne - Lead O/S - 22/Aug/09 with Ned
A bit awkward to protect on the really steep bits. I started sprinted through them but by the time I stopped I was quite run out amid not too many decent gear options, hence regreted bypassing gear below. Fortunately the enormous sideways jug and bomber cam wasn't too far away.

SGD - Lead - 28/Sep/08 with Jonathan
Jugtastic HVS 5a, not particularly pumpy and with good gear. Final steep slab looked like it would go at 5a on the right hand side so went for the higher left hand side for more of a challenge. Hardest and scariest topout I've ever done ensued, heelhooking whilst pulling on poor slopers and with the prospect of a fall onto some nice rocks on the ledge below the slab, greasy day as well, just about made it... E4 6a? PS: midges got pretty evil.

A very physical climb. Technically not a challenge (hence tend to agree with new guide's HVS rating). But very physical as overhanging most of the way. Ran out of steam halfway up and came off which was annoying - must get fitter.
