Fell going around the roof
Benjamin95 - Lead dnf - 20/Mar/15
Tough! Hard to read and hard for 5b, gear not great either.
Jimbo C - 2nd - 07/Mar/15 with Olly
Don't think it's a "pleasant groove" more like an awkward boulder problem in the sky. Took me 3 goes to get it clean, and even then my foot nearly slipped off.

Went up roof route, couldn't turn the lip so finished up this. Absolutely boxed from attempts on roof route but just scraped up it. Come onto ukc and see that I led roof route 3 years ago lol. My memory is defo getting worse.
This section of crag really shows how far hvs can stretch. Groove route, roof route and nonsuch in a day and your probably gonna be ok on steady E2's.

guess I haven't improved much as it didn't seem much easier to lead 5 years after 2nding it!

Effectively an onsight as I couldn't remember the sequence. Fairly desperate until you figure out how. Palms help.

Palmed out to the right hand jug to get stood up in the groove, didn't feel anywhere near 5c like that and went smoothly. We weren't sure if many spot it that way though?? Nice route.
