I am not convinced I stayed on route, but had a good look around. I explored the lower part of Bloodshot E3 5c (by accident), but felt very off route, so back left onto correct route. There was reasonable gear placements but i was not convinced any key gear higher up would hold a fall. So i found better gear left and came back in to finish on target. But i think in making this route safe i can only claim HVS 5a as i think i took a slightly easier line. If strictly on route this is a bold hard 5b, but i am not convinced the gear is good enough for HVS. If gear pops on falls leading to big falls is this worth E1? Or was i off route? All comments appreciated. ***************** UPDATE - Whippers! June 3rd 2017 Whilst doing route, Martello Buttress, I saw 2 separate falls on adjacent route The Scoop. First fall a cam popped out, maybe only 3 to 4 meter. But 2nd fall 2 x cams popped out and leader fell/bounced a good 6 to 10 meters! No serious injuries as lower cam saved serious ground fall.

Really cracked the start this time - found the great jam so no huffing and puffing. Looking now at other folk's Logbook comments I may have missed the true crux by climbing a bit to the left. The route more pumpier than expected but I got a good jam for the right hand half way up allowing me to fully shake out the left before the final push.

Reaver2k 20/Jun/09 Lead O/S

Just about managed this clean I believe, was extremely pumped by the top moves. The first moves are a bit tricky but nothing to be worried about. Then there is a huge reach up to poor holds, I just about managed to clasp one of these, but didn't feel secure pulling through so I believe I escaped out left slightly, not sure where I went wrong really. I put some gear in and moved back right to finish up the slopey breaks and got really really pumped but was determined not to rest, there is a jam somewhere there!
