The crack-line right of Helmut provides a fine workout. Steep and well-protected, the name is somewhat misleading as the crack is seldom used by those in the know! © Rockfax

On Rob's gear - I've dogged and seconded this a few times before. Still a bit of a fight this time!

Rob Greenwood - UKClimbing 24/Apr/17 Lead β

Kind of had the beta from heading up Jasper then abseiling back down, as such not a true onsight, but a great route nonetheless that I thankfully found easier than I always thought I would

Had dogged this a couple of years ago in the scorching heat. Remembered vague bits but not that much so still got mega pumped especially after efforts at malham yday. Good to clean this up as an early season tick.

Duncan Campbell 22/Jul/14 Lead dog

So hot. I was sweating bucket loads the whole way up. Messed it up trying to get to the peg and fell off, then had a rest at the peg. Really good, but don't go and do this when it is in the full summer sun!!

3rd E4 lead of the day. Having already got mega pumped on wee doris and taking an age on pickpocket I was well tired before I set off. At the crux my footwork let me down somewhat, my forearms felt like they might burst and I was rather panic stricken as I was too tired to place much gear. Fortunately, I clawed up it

quick rest on the rope - if I didn't wimp out it would have been fine..

Top rope rope warm up today (really struggled), then seconded Oliver, then got back on this thinking it would be good falling practice but no chance of a successful lead. Surprised myself by finding it relatively comfortable. A few power screams though, of course.

Gutted to fall off this but I don't have any excuses this time - this was just too hard for me! The climbing felt at least 7a, but there is a lot of bomber gear which makes it stiff E4.

Fell twice figuring out the first overlap. Nearly fell above the second overlap, but hung on just. Felt like my hardest lead to date, though technically i've done harder...
