Strenuous climbing on grubby & greasy rock. Good holds/finger jams, quite pumpy further up (holding on getting gear out!)

Pretty good crack climbing if a bit grubby. The start is defininately the crux.

Good lead by Spiros since it was incredibly dirty. Some nice moves. It would be quite good if clean.

The polished feet make gaining the good holds at the start tricky. Took 4 attempts. The second part felt steep but with good spots for placing gear.

Steep! After clearing clods of earth off it 3 weeks ago I thought I'd climb it. Still needs more attention with a brush.

Tried to lead, couldn't get off the ground. Mud has come down the face and holds are very dirty. Mean start regardless

The start of this is really awkward and polished (very, very hard for VS). It defied both Rob and I. But succumbed (more easily than I would like) to Richard.
