Attempted to lead this (my 5th VS lead) and ended up taking my first trad fall. A bit exciting/scary but a good test of my gear placement! Tried again to get up it but felt a bit psyched out and so gave up. Managed to second it about an hour later though.

VS4c is the very edge of my comfort zone, and I felt like pushing myself... good idea at the time. Got to the pulpit, struggled to get any further so belayed from there, JP led the rest, and it actually felt quite easy after a rest and on top rope...

Annoyed with myself initially as I couldn't get past the initial movie at the top of the crux. Eventually lowered off (twice), had lunch and then led ground up. Nice long climb which was consistently about 4c. A few trickier moves again at the top, but with bomber gear. HVS in OPR, I think that's more accurate.

After being accused of being un-able to jam I had a point to prove. With the failing light and and an attractive belayer on the ledge i decided to finish up the Vdiff- no doubt missing the crux, although the VDiff was scary enough!

Brilliant! Couldn't have hoped for a better 'end of the day' route! Had been eyeing up this all day because it looked like such a lovely line, but was sure I had heard previously on UKC that it was a toughy for VS. Some really nice strenuous moves up the initial part of the corner, until you can bridge out and place gear, which I was glad for after 3m of tricky soloing. Up to the pulpit it is relatively straight forward jamming over a bulge, which as long as you use your feet and move relatively quickly is ok. Up onto the pulpit, and take a well earned rest. Start up the next awkward crack with offwidth to the right, only to find its damp in both the fist crack, and the offwidth! Scrabbled up a couple of metres. Did my first armbar/chicken wing, and placed a solid nut in a small crack which I was glad for. Was a very strenuous position so had to keep on moving, one or two more moves and you reach the next ledge which is a relief. Took a well earned rest here again, tried wiggling in a nut, which I ended up getting stuck and didnt trust, placed a bomber small hex aswell as I had heard this was the crux. A couple of tricky layback/bridging moves and I reached the *very damp* break, which I wasn't thankful for! Pulled over quickly below hands got too greasy and felt very happy with myself! Probably one of the most strenuous VS's ive done! I'm sure it would get HVS if the ledges to rest on weren't so substancial! Had to fight up the offwidth, felt 5a!

Tried this before ever hearing about jamming :) (Though I have still yet to experience that pleasure). Thought I must have done the hard part by getting up the polished holds to the pulpit but could not get more than a few feet above there. Just could not find a decent hold and after half an hour was pumped beyond repair. Bailed onto another route. The only climb to get under my skin. Gonna go back and learn to jam on it if that is what is needed.
