9m. 30'. Starts 5 yards left of a square-cut groove. Make steep moves through the overhang, then continue up the knobbly crack above.

A massive fail by me on a day of mostly poor climbing. set up a baby bouncer but just got the sequence all wrong so gave up and left the route for another time. Alex took over and promptly handled it first time, followed by Jenny using a massive heel hook to gain the first ledge.

Tied in on Robins gear at the start. Pretty stiff move up to the jugs then a glorious romp up the wall! Quite pumpy mind.

This is a real sandbag if you don't know the sequence. More like E1 5b, than VS 4c. I'm not telling...!

Arms were too tired for the overhang start. Difficult to lead, so setup top rope

From the ground you can chuck a hex above your head to protect the start!.. obviously I didn't do this...

Positive holds but reachy and very steep with slightly dodgy gear at the star, can see how this would be off putting for VS leaders.

A hard start but then it eases significantly

First move a bit harder than 4c, I think. Have tried to lead before, but was not happy committing to first move - was fine on 2nd though!

Good steep start that is quite technical for the grade then more juyg pulling up the steep wall.

Not 100% sure if we were really on the right route, but it definitely felt like 4c, probably slightly harder, especially the first moves over the overhang with a very unpleasant landing. Ben placed the first pieces of protection just below the initial overhang, then I took over and led to the top.

4c? No way, at least 5a for the direct start. Either that or we were at the wrong crag.

Horrible start, at least for short bloke like me (5-8). Overhanging difficult move right about 2 metres over very un-even and sharp looking rock.
