Defo a 'burly' start, easier for the tall. From a good right handhold under the overhang get feet high, lay away with L hand & reach the sloppy top of the flange. Very green this early in the season…. but a grand exit!

Being tall, I was able to reach the good hold easily which made the pull up okay however was very scrunched up in the niche which made rocking up onto it awkward.

valentinesbabe 27/Sep/14 2nd dnf

I'm logging this for completeness however I didn't just not finish...I just couldn't get started. I went up and down the first move or so numerous times but just couldn't get enough height to get a good enough hold in the crack to pull up on. Need to work on that pull up lock off thing a bit more first :D

Oh Man!! First HVS lead!! First 5b!! Amazing stuff!! Possibly amazing more for the sense of my personal achievement than the route it's self but still a top quality climb. The initial move is pumpy and took me a second attempt to get the footwork right (right foot placement was crucial) but really nice moves. Once that excitement was over, the main slab was very steep with many sloping holds and proved to be exciting and a little scary, but cams protect it pretty well. That being said, I was very relieved to reach the sanctuary of the jugs on the upper crack.

Great climbing. I stayed as far right as i could. Lovely moves up the arete then wicked break climbing. Loved it!

mikehenesy 14/Sep/14 Lead dog

Gave it another go. Did the move, got up in to the niche, got in a suspect cam up high but couldn't get established and after lots of grunting and whining ended up hanging on that cam. Found a rounded top eventualy and got up. Rest of it was fantasticaly slabby, magnifico!

Eventualy figured the first move, got up put in the next piece of gear, didn't like it was knackered and so down climbed. Couldn'd get up the bastrd a second time, couldn't do the move. Paul had to get up and complete it - did a good job with a bit of expert tuition from the ground of course. Well done, his first HVS lead.

Horrendous start - took about 10 goes, only got up then with significant "progress capture" (hauling) by Neil. Nice above.

Mike led well, quite a tough one this for HVS! Really hard start, right hand high, left hand high on pretty crap hold just up the crack, then right foot up high and rock over a bit and sort of shuffle up! I did it very inelegantly! Wander up left with a bit of difficulty, loads of slopers to hold onto whilst taking gear out, would have been harder placing! One piece was out over on April crack so had to go get that out then was forced to move back left without a rest as Tom was shouting at me! Moves up from there arn't too hard, just quite precarious, glad I chose a easier HVS... probably come back and have a bash some day soon.
