Fantastic! My first HVS lead-yippee! Excellent climbing. Very well protected throughout. Did rest on gear but happy that I've broke the mental block of HVS's. Would love to do again in one.

Super annoyed, got massively pumped and rested on the two smallest holds on the route, little did i know huge jug only 1ft above me. Rested on gear and then finished

huge holds in great places good and lots of safe gear with a slight over hang but personally just a smaller easier mathers crack but none the less just as good for those not at that grade yet :)

Did this climb after a spell away from climbing. Found it very pumpy and it just wouldn't let up. Not my bag, but superb in many other ways.

Dan Lane 07/Aug/09 Lead O/S

Nice climbing although gear isnt quite as good as i would like it to be in parts, crack just seem to flare a little making it hard to get nuts and wires to seat well. sustained but not cruxy climbing. Can't remember belayers name, possibly Catherine?

Loved it. Quite pumpy on the 1st half and fairly sustained to the top out. Scraped my knuckles a little due to some desperate jamming!
