Long reach helped but strong cross wind certainly hampered in making delicate, balancey step up! Well protected where it matters.

Led on Steve's gear

Steve Waters, Mynydd 21/Oct/12 Lead

Excellent. Had about 5 attempts before working out the correct sequence. I reached up with right hand but Mike used his left with a clever undercling/side finger lock with the right hand which gave him a couple of extra inches of reach.

As good as it looks & a nice lead by Kev. We did the right hand start... Only felt like 5a to me but is possibly harder if you're short and haven't got the reach...

Faffed around for so long wondering whether to go for the E1 6a direct finish I needed a rest! Bailed out and stuck with the HVS 5b in the end.

tried to lead but couldn't do first move, got it first go on second, after watching others and warming fingers up. Top out is ok with a calm and confident approach
