βeta: The top of the crack is impossible with the broken hold, I couldn't even find a way up it on a top-rope.

βeta: Absolutely death on a stick at hvs. A distinct lack of any holds whatsoever at the top of the crack to enable the traverse rightwards.

βeta: There is a large scar where the last good runner placement (and jam?) used to be before the traverse out right. Seems harder than HVS 5a now and quite pumpy.

βeta: After the top crack gear gets marginal to say the least for a couple of metres. The move is also less than obvious.

climberchristy 2 Jun Lead rpt Annoyed to have to rest on gear having pumped out on traverse. In my defence it was dirty and first lead of day so not warmed up. Still annoying because I've led it clean in the past. Was never HVS. Now rightly upgraded to E1 but even then it might be top end E1?

fuzzysheep01 8 Apr, 2017 Lead dog Bailed on E3 after pumping out. Had this as consolation. Great, sustained bomber jams up lower wall. Traverse a bit sketchy but with decent gear.

buxtoncoffeelover 24 Sep, 2016 2nd Jacob led Nowanda, Rosie seconded/cleaned; belay position not ideal for third climber, so I had a go at Landsick. Bottom section was fine, but I fell off halfway through the traverse - got back onto the arete further right for a stiff pull back to finishing moves
