Couldn't dial in the moves up from the obvious pebble, sterling attempt by Phil on lead whose dodgy wrist let him down on the last move

mrphilipoldham 31/Jul/16 Lead dnf

Hands were on the top out but right wrist felt weak.. bailed. So, so close! To return to.

An eliminate. Think we did it right. Wasn't too hard, but glad I'm tall. Started up the wall directly between two cracks, which proved the trickiest part - and a recommended way to begin!

Bertbee 15/Jul/15 Lead O/S

Made a real effort to stay on route with this and not reach out into the Fifth Horseman. Even so - HVS 5a? Must be harder if you are short... or something.

I reckon it would be better if more holds were eliminated.

Stupidly eliminate. "... doesn't matter still counts!"

This crag has far too many routes crammed next to each other. This is barely a line and certainly not independent. I climbed it with pebble in right hand (fifth Horseman?) and pebble in left hand. This way felt like a crap E1 5b

Orinally did a clean on-sight top route years ago when I did not know that the climb existed. Mentioned to Paul that it went ok and he duly led it clean on-sight today. Great lead. Fun climbing though very bold

Top roped it a couple of times before leading - definately feels an independent line on the lead!

Good lead by Tom after top roping cleanly

Awful. Barely independant. Worst climb I've ever done!

Only fell off because I was too short to reach the hold. Had to step into a higher pocket to reach the edge, at a stretch!

it is a bit of a contrived route, i went up the centre of the slab to the pebble then went high right, E2 5B is a good grade

Done this a couple of ways now, both well away from the line of Fifth Horseman, but neither of them seem to justify E2.

The obvious way (right hand on the pebble and reach up) is clearly far too easy to be this route! Nice done properly, though probably still nowhere near E2.

not to sure if i climbed this or the hvs to the side!!!

Thought I'd done Fifth Horseman, but was flicking through Terry's new guide and found I'd done this! Thought it was scary for HVS, but wouldn't have thought it was E2.

Very bloody scary as the only bit of gear I had protecting the crux fell out.
