went up the left side to place a nut runner. Found the top of the flake move very tricky for HS. Need to go back and do it without placing high nut runner.

So, having thought I was climbing Nursery Arête I had an absolute mare on what appeared to be a blank face, so I finished up Flake Crack instead. Having looked at UKC it appears the guides wrong so I don't feel so bad

In the snow. Struggled a bit on the start, couldn't quite work it out (combination of damp rock and the fact that I'd not done trad in 6 moths). Ended up using the corner crack and a bit of bridging to get established. Travers and swing up to the ledge was nice on good jugs. Lay-backing up the flake was also fun although easy to escape out left and it was not entirely clear at which point you were supposed to go left.

Mystified by the start - took me 5 attempts to get established - must be missing the point.

Don't know why but had a bit of a mare on the initial crack on this one, found the top section easy...last one of the day so maybe tiredness creeping in!

Given a 4a in Western Grit. The initial moves are awkward and there is a definite overhang. I think this is under-graded.

Very pumpy on 2 parts and a struggle to protect as you hang on (but I could have climbed it better I must add!)
