George Frisby 20/Aug/17 2nd dog

Much harder than it looks from the bottom, pumpy all the way through and then did the last flaring chimney with terrible technique and pumped out.

Neil led. Can see why I had to have a rest on this when I tried it. The move in the middle is genuinely quite tough for HVS, moreso if you hesitate at all.

Great climbing up the cracks-just dont stop till perfect chockstone thread and good rest.very awkward exit at the top,but with excellent gear.really pleased to get up this cleanly,lost much energy and some skin at the top!

Had to hang on the rope to extract a stubborn nut. Awkward moves at the top.

Had to rest on this. Very disappointing as it is a superb route. Sustained 5a, not really 5b as per Rockfax.
