Super polished, steep and pumps lead to two falls and a rest. Eventually struggled to the jug and all was well after that.

Quite hard - need a fairly steady head to place gear.

A tiny, 1-2 placement lead. Would be an easy solo but adding the gear increases the challenge!

Started route but backed of after first few moves as I was not comfy with position. Frustrated I decided to reattempt, peeled off just over half way up ripped my one piece of gear (Badly) place Cam 1.0 and hit the ground. Bounced quite well, no injures. It's harder than it looks!

That's the hardest technical grade I've done (assuming it's still 5a!). Seemed ok really, good gear halfway and then the crux is over quickly with good finishing jugs! Very happy with the effort. Jamie got up it ok, having used up too much energy trying to place gear on lead.

After a few failed attempts of the Lead, I follwed on second only to make an even bigger meal of it !! (must remember footwork)

Kind of between where I thin kthis should g oand where I thin kthe HVS should go - ie, I didnt use the overhanging crack at all, but I wasnt far enough over to be on the HVS. I think this is the easiest way up the wall!

Nice Steep Cracks, rounded for pro. Good steep climb. Jugs at top give great feelings of impending security. Worth keeping momentum up if at all possible
