Led P1 the VS variant, Robert then led 2+3, I then I led 4(not the VS chimney)+5. Nice route. The original route felt maybe a bit hard for Severe. Don't know.

Found the direct start tricky, slipped but got up it. Very windy, was having to pause for gusts on the final pitch to keep balance, but at least the crag was almost empty!

Dave led direct VS start (felt more 4c) + P3 + P5, I led P2 bracket (In poor style) and MVS chimney on P4.

Dave Richards 16/Sep/17 AltLd O/S

I led the tricky direct start p1 (MVS), p3 and p5. We did the left hand (MVS) chimney. Quite tricky, think you need to get stuck in!

Did the direct start then went too high, missed the belay, and had to downclimb. Confused the party next door who thought we were on Remembrance, who then started up Bracket Direct. Abbed off rather than have to wait at each belay! To be continued :-)

2nd climb of 3rd day of weeks course with Jerome from Vertical Lakeland. A midweek guided multi pitch climb today. Did pitches 2 to 5 first, then 1 last. Pitch 1, layback and smear was hard, I need to improve that technique. Did the MVS Amen chimney, definitely one for the slender masochist, a type 2 fun chimney.

Had a route finding issue on the 3rd wandering pitch looking for a left traverse into a crack. Ended up on B route tricky layback crack. As of 3/10/14 there's a piece of blue ab tat which is the start of the actual crack and traverse NOT the ramp into the spicy and razor sharp holded B route crack. We came back away from B route and finished the route as per the description and took the right chimney due to failing light, very easy last two pitches, probably VDiff.

Lead the direct start to B&S but went off route after it. The FRCC guide states that it misses out the 1st pitch of B+S, but it in fact misses out the first TWO piches. This confusion, and rushing to beat the light meant we went off route, eventually finishing up B route.

Found the pitches on the Bracket a little weird so linked some up and made stances above amen corner, eventually finishing in five pitches. Still awesome though with incredible variety. Severe climbing at its best with some thinking needed at points. Loved the diagonal crack to start of with too. Lead 1,3 & 5.
