crack was good, but direct finish was loose, crumbly, gorse-bushy, so ended up traversing up and right onto the slab of Crosstown

Spent a long time getting through the gorse bushes.

Interesting evening. Matt set off up a VS, took a fall, carried on past the crux, decided he wasn't going to risk the easier top section (a wise move as it comprised a hideous hollow tottering pile of loose blocks). Decided he couldn't down-climb the VS, then decided the HVS escape was also too loose to be countenanced, and finally, after some discussion with his belayer, attempted and achieved an unpleasant descent of part of the HVS and a bold stepover to the right onto Cross in Oz, E1, up which he finished, a shattered and broken man. Seconding was not exactly stress free either. A fine adventure!

Self Belay, climbed at freezing point, very slippy.

Ignore the loose corner and gorse bush to finish; go right up the wall and arete, Much nicer, cleaner and fits with the bottom part of the route.

My knee got stuck in the crack while jamming. Encountered dead rabbit along the way and topped out through a bush. Classic.
