This was pretty stiff for an S 4a. A few thin moves, with tiny footholds, and most VS s I've climbed have had more pro than this, at least near the ground. If you're prepared for the sandbag, this is a good route.

With dubious & distant gear below him, Paul decided against the unprotected traverse & finished up the (tricky but protected) corner/groove of Horrock's Route

First route of the day - very enjoyable and well-protected. Agree with others that the start feels 4c and VS wouldn't seem unreasonable; S4a is definitely sandbagging. But, it's never desperate and definitely worth doing. I did start left of the hook, though, as per the photo topo; I guess disagreements over where the line actually goes are part of the grade discrepancy.

Paul Hy 24/Oct/16 Lead O/S

S 4a my Ar5e. 4c start with no gear until (if) you can lasso the pipe. There's other tricky moves as well that a Sev leader would need to change his/her pants. afterwards. The book says its VS 4c and 'coz the start has a serious potential it needs to upgraded to that. I've voted for High HS and High 4b 'coz it only goes the high.

Lead clean on sight. Hard and committing moves to reach the hook, then well protected climbing to reach the half way niche on the left. High runners protect the traverse (looks worse than it is) then bold and juggy climbing, running it out to the top. Belays a little awkward to arrange.

This is definatly not a S 4a and maybe harder even than HS 4b (compaired to 999) i had about 3 bits of deceint gear in and none for the crux.

Haven't been leading at HS for long but found this a really frightening climb. Protection was very poor at a few points and having just led '999' (HS) before with absolutely no difficulty I think this climb should come with a 'fluttery and bold' warning!

Liked this - first multi-pitch (as such). Split it into two using massive ledge, probably wouldn't bother in the future. The beginning around the hook is tricky, top half very easy.

Horrible climb. The start is slippy and plain unpleasant. One to avoid for the future.

Hugh had led this first and took quite a terrifying swinging fall from the shallow groove, fell 8 or 9 metres. His gear was small hex above the terrace on the left which was hard to retrieve...

One of my first leads years ago, date a guess. I seem to recall that I didn't really know what I was doing / didn't have much gear, and ran it out from the spike to the top..
