Reaver2k 3 May, 2008 Lead O/S Really nice route, a classic at the grade! Beautiful beautiful rock! Went up and down the start a few times, couldn't see a way of pulling myself over and was pumping out placing gear, on the third go I moved out a little further towards the nose which proved a lot easier! Some really nice friction friendly gritstone always inspires confidence when smearing! Moved out right slightly, up the twin cracks with a series of suprisingly tricky moves and some odd rests (involving partial chimney climbing!) Leads to the top moves which I found really awkward. The rockfax guide shows the line finishing up to the right so I moved round to the right and got stuck, reveresed back down after placing some gear, tried again, same result, then saw a couple of moves on the left which looked easier and did them with style! Topped out with a big grin on my face! Although I found this route really tricky, I prided myself on being in control all the way up which I normally can't say. I was never in a situation where I was making lunges, hoping for good luck, always had 3 points on and could always reverse the move I had just done. Felt good, really good. Will repeat.
