FA. Clifford Moyer 1931

Christina 27/May/17 Lead

I did a combination of Moyer's Climb and Moyer's Variation, probably the least committing bits of each.

Getting around the arete is the hardest (and bold) bit and requires slopers, balancy but solid feet so not technically difficult, just nerve wracking. Found a small cam placement in the break seemed ok and improved my confidence.

Started up this, finished up Moyer's Variation as the moves right towards the arete seemed unreasonable for the grade.

Not worth a star, unnerving grassy ledge and nothing special about the route.

Not sure if this was the one we did but thought I'd put it down for future reference + another VD??

Slipped on lichen. Damn glad I didn't lead this one - had to jump for a hold. John could *only just* reach and he's 6'+.

Got to the final move far out right on traverse and retreated back to finish up Moyers variation. Not much easier.

Bit of an effort on this. Probably my first traverse on rock and it's quite different to going straight up! Nice climb though and a lovely crag.

Final move off the ledge onto the arete section requires a balance move on rounded slopers which were pretty green! "Fluttery".
