Polished, not much fun. Bridged over to Black Hawk at the top of the crack as it was nearby; possibly that's a cop-out, but this is pointlessly eliminate if so.

Great climb. Wished I did yoga when I did a big Bridge to place a bit of gear at the bottom of the diagonal crack. Got one nut about half way up it and then powered through the rest to easier ground. Satisfying climb.

Made it to the diagonal crack, moved up that (small cams and good nut) and got my left hand into the high finger jam. Then tried to move left and got pumped and came off. On second attempt, used left finger jam and moved right- far easier for me.

So chuffed to get this one clean as I wasn't sure my fingers were up to it. Lovely climb and excellent lead by Charley.

Last time I tried this I hung around the crux too long fiddling in gear before trying to do the move and ended up having to rest on the rope. Much better this time! Nice offset nut and a cam in the diagonal crack and then a fair reach to a sinker left hand finger jam. Quite a good HVS really, it should have more stars!

nice climbing but feels a bit escapable

named as Divine Providence in BMC guide (not to be confused with Providence), nice enough route, maybe worth a star but does feel a little close to black halk near the top, (keep those hands and feet off!)

Hardest lead to date, on a perfect day. I got a bit intimidated and took ages leaving the diagonal crack - not a wise tactic. Dropped a cam on my belayer and had a bit of a stress at myself. Finished it without any more drama.

Climbed after misreading the guide. Meant to climb an easier route. My First HVS lead. Took a fall from the diagonal crack, then finished on 2nd attempt

Bold, good clean moves. Trust your feet and organise hands to utilise a sneaky undercut.

Climbed the thin crack thinking it was Burgess' Variation (S 4a). I thought it was a bit tough for a Severe! Rested on gear once having got pumped trying to work out the sequence near the top of the crack. Confusingly Rockfax only list one line up this crack, Prudence. The new BMC guide lists two; Providence, E1 5c which moves straight up from the start of the slanting crack and Divine Providence, HVS 5b, which seems to follow the same line as Prudence. What is going on?

Had a bit of a struggle trying to find gear in the middle of the face so placed a wire in the crack to the left...possibly tainting my first HVS lead.
