I echo Alex below: Nails! P1, up to the big ledge was fine, classic Trem. P2, the overhanging crack, was tough. Mike ended up aiding it & I fell off 10 times trying to 2nd it. Finally realised it wasn't a hand-jam I needed! P3 was more technical but not as hard as P2. We gardened the route (the big ledge & the oak tree obscuring the top of P2) pretty comprehensively as we'd taken secateurs.

A true classic of its genre - Hard. We didn't quite manage Neb Direct but the two 5c cracks on the The Neb itself were both desperate in their own right. I did both after taking over from Dave on the first but fell off the second crack on my first try. Your average face climber would be in dire straits.

1pt on wet crack as it was getting dark :(

MichaelGallimore 26/May/14 Lead dog

Wanted to do neb direct. Found p1 difficult for route finding. P2 crack 1 went OK, crack 2 was sopping wet with running water. Tried really hard anyway because I could see the roof crack was dry and really wanted clean ascent. Chalk was more like tooth paste though, and I fell off onto gear. Used gear to aid second crack. Finished normal route- traverse under roof was scary.

First pitch was fine but really struggled on the top pitches

andy_e 26/May/14 2nd O/S

First pitch was delicate, but good. Second and third pitches were brutal! Clean on first pitch only.

Beautiful P1. Both short cracks demand some respect - tricky. Very good indeed. Direct version looks interesting...

E2. Went to try neb direct but it was really dark under roof as sun had set so quickly finished up neb. Wicked first pitch and fierce cracks above.

My intro to E numbers and 5B climbing. Abbed off tree as Ritchie wasn't up to doing the rest of it.

Went to do Neb Direct but it started to rain part way through - probably for the best because it looks 'ARD!

I led the first pitch of Kestrel Cracks and Pete did the two hard pitches. He actually found it quite hard as he spent a while figuring out how to jam the cracks. I managed to pull myself up on a tight unforgettable birthday present for a kid of 19.
