Bitchin hard for HS, so pumped. Although I may have missed the 'hidden holds'. Smaller hands would have helped, done easier routes at HVS

Bit of a tussle with this one! Straight over the lip are some good holds, then some jams in the break. Placed some gear, left hand on left arete and moved up with left foot on arete. Slide right hand jams up and reach into break, two solid jams, place some more gear and jam up the next section. Both Becca and Lisa had a bit of a struggle on this, Mike managed fine, good practice for jamming although pretty sustained really!
