Only one hard move getting into the hanging groove but that move felt at least 5a.

I managed to reach jugs so was very easy for the lanky. If you were forced to use bunched insecure flared jams would be nails! Only one hard move though.

Well I did finish but couldn't manage to get over the overlap. Felt really hard for a 4b, I was obviously doing something wrong but couldn't figure it out. Ended up going a little further up Right Route and then stepping around back on to the route avoiding the pull over the overlap (although even that wasn't very easy).

Tricky bulge - 4c

with Mike Jones
Chris Murray 30/Mar/14 Lead

The definitive guide has this at VS 4b, which I think is about right. Only 1-2 hard moves through the overhang, which would be very tricky if you don't know how to jam. Well protected by friends and nuts though. A friend 4 (or maybe a large hex) protects the final moves.

Fell off after it started hammering down with rain, hands slipped and end up pointing the wrong way down the slab and hitting my head heavily. This route is easier for the tall.

Nice route, enjoyable move round the overhang. Guidebook calls this VS and I think that's probably fair.
