Far Peak Climbing 30/Oct/17 2nd O/S
with tony penning
Jim blackford 19/Sep/17 Lead O/S

Traversed to the scoop of M1 to retrieve gear. Then far left to a grassy ledge before moving right to above the square cut niche - is probably harder direct. possible to climb a further left crack above too. Finished up second pitch of Electra girdle (5a).

Belayed at big thread after running out of gear. Inadvertently followed the line of bolts above on second pitch which was nails (about F6c+)....ended up dogging up it pulling on gear and realised afterwards that this was the top pitch of Motorway madness!

I led p1 going right when I should've gone left but made it to the belay eventually. Niels climbed the bolted line which I followed with difficulty. Very enjoyable.

Tenuous technical moves through the first overlap, felt 5c - suspect you're mean to go a bit further left rather than direct. A good route.

P1, lewis didn't wanna continue after getting half way up after the incident before hand that shall not be mentioned. Quite runout I thought.

The crux (potentially 5b move) moving through the small square cut corner has some loose looking rock - so you can move round the bulge on it's left - but this is only 5a - still pretty run out in places though - so E1 5a

breaking a long climbing fast. took a couple of rests but otherwise found it surprisingly ok. other climbers when we got to the top said they thought access was still banned due to winter rockfall. oops.

In a oner. Rope drag made the last pitch feel a little more frantic than it should have. Not as good as M1, but probs worth a star.

Surprised at the quality of this, especially the top half which was juggy and steep.

Stanners 18/Mar/12 AltLd O/S

although the conditions greatly improved I still didn't have my head quite in the right place. Great route but personally found it a bit spicy. Hard E1 soft 5b in my opinion but since no one else agrees I'll put it down to having a poor leading head today. Quality short 2nd pitch. Used up nearly all my gear on my pitch and had to use rope around the thread. 2*

with James Rich, Jack Bradbrook
Quarryboy 18/Mar/12 AltLd O/S

Good route, first pitch was pretty cool and I managed to find a no hands knee bar about 2/3rds of the way up, crux seemed rather reachy, even for me although maybe I was just climbing quite fast and missed something I was meant to find. I then led pitch 2 which was short but sweet!

Honestly didn't think any of this was 5b (though I am tall). Also contrary to the guidebook, didn't think any of it was run out (and I am a wuss). A solitary nut placement on the headwall? I had 3 nuts and 2 cams!

In 1, with detour into Hocus to fetch some gear. The jammed wire you can see from the ground (not mine, really is jammed. Needs chiselling, or nut keying and hexing.
