I climbed up to him (the start of Roscoe's Wall felt almost 5c to me, long reach) and then attempted Round Table myself , but like him got stuck trying to reach the flake in the middle of the crack, it was strenuous and scary. Eventually Icam back down too, Neil then had another go and got up it cleanly, I thne followed him cleanly too. A strange ascent - something of a seige! Oh, and Round Table is definitely NOT HVS! ;)
