Tom started Calver Wall (VS 5a) and got gear in up to the deep horizontal seam ~2m from the top. Could not get past this point so tried Brindle Crack instead but was burnt out. Set up belay so I could have a go. I struggled to remove gear on the VS with greasy negative holds but got there on third attempt. Tried to lead Brindle Crack myself but had difficulty starting directly above Tom's belay. Got a further piece of gear in a little higher up but had myself lost the power to be able to mantel up by this point so we called it quits and came off to the right. Humbling!

Nice climbing and good gear. Getting established in top crack is quite committing - took a bit of psyching upon the ledge, and gear shuffling to get on with it! A typical tough Curbar HS?

My one lead of afternoon. Choice of routes above the huge ledge (nice to place gear from, not so good if you fall onto it). Had a look at Calver wall and got some gear in, but backed off and settled for BC instead. Still managed to scare myself when a foot slipped, but glad I finished it.
