One of the holds, mid crux was green and slimey so took quite a few attempts to fully commit to this one. By a few I actually mean loads, in fact got fed up at one point and handed the lead to Kev and then Ange. Had one last go after Ange gave up and got up it no problem. Nice move and would be quite straight forward in good conditions.

A one powerful move wonder. Stiff at 4b.

Dax 18/May/08 Lead O/S

One move wonder really. Did it really as a try out of gear placement .. unfortuately my gear placement was rubbish. Basically I wanted to protect the move but could only find stuff that was: 1. way too low (I'd have hit the block I was standing on from the lip) 2. On, or just below the lip, but it was rubbish. 3. Above the lip but this would have meant either doing the move and then putting in the pro (pointless) or doing a two armed pull up, locking off on one arm, placing pro and _then_ doing the move. I went for option 2. Just read the comment below re: HVS or VS .. I'd go for HVS. This actually makes a lot of sense - the two routes the right of this route had miles better looking gear options and they are a VS and a HVS.

Some guides say this is VS4b while others say HVS 5a. So I'm counting it as HVS even though it's a bit of a 2 move wonder (one move if you're tall and reachy..)
