Did the direct start as I didn't read the book carefully. It is quite burly for the grade.

Simon Caldwell 20/Aug Lead O/S

Tough start (did the direct) and not the best protected, felt more like HS 4a/b. Maybe I missed something obvious! Finished left at the top as per the current guidebook, but old editions have it finishing more direct, over the right edge of the capping chockstone.

Was supposed to be an easy warm up but I made a right hash of it. Polished and slimy with not a huge amount of easy protection it was a mare of a climb. Not helped by freezing fingers and toes and the fog that was supposed to have cleared!!

Took the right hand start. The chimney didn't look that amenable, so went a bit too far up the VS, then tried traversing upwards across the top of the slab. This involved moves somewhat trickier than VDiff, and when the anticipated handholds in the break above failed to materialise, I fell off. First trad lead fall!! I was strangely quite pleased with it, as it was no big deal. After this, I wasnt worried about climbing the chimney, though I thought it had some really tricky moves for a VDiff: bridging on pure friction with no gear and nothing in the way of holds for feet or hands for several moves. Kicking myself now for not just pushing on up through the crux of the VS on the pre-tested bomber gear!
