CurlyStevo ?/Oct/13 Lead

Nice climb. I think this could be a VS 5a myself as you can rest before the crux and it's short lived and well protected. Whatever its a good first HVS lead as soft in the grade and well protected. Started the traverse low as this looked easier (and looking at pics of other climbers doing it the high way since then I think was right) I personally found the crux of the variant to be harder than anything on mississipi buttress direct but its a nicer move and less polished and awkward.

Got round the bulge Ok but then fell off traversey bit near the top. Ran out of ideas and strength on crucial bit.

Didn't really get into this route. One rather cruxy move above good gear was ok but nothing special. Enjoyed Centre Stage on Balcony Buttress much more for the grade.

Great route and better than MBD (in my opinion). Does the crux of the VS then the traverse right maintains the interest. Ran it out abit.
