Tricky little movements: one at the very beginning (poor handholds, I had to really trust my feet) and one near the end, when I had to get off the crack and finish the climb. Pretty nice route.

Led this as a first severe lead so was a bit gutted when I realised it's given a different grade on here! Temptation is to get right into the crack as it feels safer(which I did) but you risk getting stuck. Only just managed to negotiate my way out. Overall, good fun!

Matt lead, did well. Bouldered up the first moves to help him look for protection but he found some as I was on my way up! Feels like VDiff in difficulty, but if it was my first VDiff lead I would be a little intimidated by the gear (at feet mostly), so probably HVD, EG gives it Severe which is possibly a little too far. Climbed it mostly on the right hand arete although if needed rests for gear placement/extraction could be had in the crack.

DNF - escaped onto Victory Gully (S 4a) which seemed easier

Good route with a few rests. Lots of body jamming and wriggling up the crack. Not sure who'd been on the route before but they'd left quite a bit of blood behind!

Good route to get back into real climbing after a break of a few years.. It was v-cold but good ! Glad David lead it though as the start was a little tricky....
