Bit runout at the start. Dropped a bunch of wires at the ledge, retrieved said wires and on to glory. Top groove is well good.

Best route of the day. Nice mixture of styles. Moves above the peg are brilliant - big moves between jugs.

First Wye Valley E1. Nice and scary plus slightly stressful but fair for 5a and the gear was ok.

Sustained but there is plenty of pro on offer. Small nuts lower down and lots of mediums higher up. The detonate crux can be well protected and there's a peg just bellow. Worthy of a star if not another.

Favourite lead of the evening. Interesting climbing up the hollow flakes to get some gear in. Well protected crux move up over the bulge. Then an awesome bridging exercise. A climb of three distinct sections. Great fun. Chuffed with the onsight.

Much improved from previous attempt - no falls and crux clean ... must be getting better

E1 (easy) 5b seems more appropriate. Proper sketchy lower down. Poor gear, a few runouts and insecure moves. I will never do this again!

Enjoyed this route, care required on the bold start but the climbing was steady. Crux felt tough for 5a and the groove above was an enjoyable finish

if you don't find the jug on the sloping ledge, it could get sticky. excellent after that.

with Rich Rogers
Hooo 22/Jan/12 2nd O/S

Some good technical moves, and sustained bits. Really enjoyed it on second and had no trouble, but I'm definitely not ready to lead it. A fall off the move onto the sloping ledge would almost certainly deck. I was preparing to jump backwards off a 2m drop if he fell there.

Chris Sieradzki 22/Jan/12 Lead O/S

sustained 5a all the way up

Nick Russell 13/Nov/11 Lead O/S

The first 10m were basically a solo, so not soft for E1! Maybe I could have found gear with a bit more imagination... Definitely worth it for the climbing in the upper groove

Lovely route! Gear is sketchy in the bottom part, and a bit spaced but fine after that, pretty steady 5a, lovely moves and a big feel to it!

Good lead from Sarp, recovering his head and continuing after all his nuts fell out! Lovely sequences, looked puzzling to protect. Peg seems bomber.

Fantastic - sustained and intersting moves in a great position! Didn't find much dodgy rock on the first section so maybe it's been pulled off by now - there's a few reasonable small/medium wires to protect this bit too and plenty of gear above.

Found it hard for HVS too. Quite plausibly E1 by Wye Valley standards, though I won't rush to vote it as such in case I'm just being soft!

I was surprised how hard I found this, and would agree with the suggestion that it could be E1. Quite serious for the first 30ft. I was 17 when I first led it, I think I just assumed you were supposed to be terrified on lead.
