1st lead on peak grit. Jamming a whole new way of climbing so managed to layback where I could!

antmorgan1991 08/May/11 Lead O/S

Bloody difficult route! Few holds and few gear placements. It times it is more like vertical caving than climbing. Final section and belay anchors desperate. I would question BMC guidebook grading of "V. Diff".

Guidebook said HVD and I would have to say more like Severe for me, but mainly because I have always chosen to avoid this sort of thing. Enjoyed the little delicate traverse into the hollybush. When the guidebook says big gear required it means BIG, I went up with a size 4 cam and was atleast 1 full size short! Ended up placing several poor pieces of gear in several breaks (almost out of reach) and going for it. Only one really intimidating move (because of my lack of adaquate gear) then a nice haul up onto a chockstone. Top crack looked super hard offwidth but in actual fact theres a few slopers on the outside, and if you just get stuck in you're as safe as houses. A great introduction to this sort of climb and will be looking for some more of this fun elsewhere!
