Scraped up on a top rope after another couple of failed attempts leading it! Bob led, partly on my gear.

Great fun but a sandbag at the grade. Would say maybe VS 4c. Tough start and then sketchy at the top if you get your fist stuck in the horizontal jam!

Stiff start (went direct) and quite pumpy but a very good route. Down climbed after doing the hard bits for a rest then back up to the top in one go. No one else did the start my way. My knees are now black and blue from repeatedly demonstrating what I did!

Thought I'd done this before, so turned out harder than I expected! Lowered off for rests (twice) then got to top clean on 3rd attempt. Mix of toprope and lead in the end!
