Paul led and chimney crack looked a real protectionless struggle so he did the wall climb on the right. Rock 1 gear was behind a loose flake and only other gear was a half decent micro. HVS 4C more than justified as in new guide. If someone said E1 5a, I would not complain....

Good line, tackled smooth sided sentry box by wall climbing on the right, tricky getting back across

A good old crack climbing struggle! enjoyed! :) As Rob 2nd'd he dropped a piece of gear. has i rigged it up to abseil. Using the tat what was there and backing it up with a friend behind. And using another to deviate the ropes to above the crack. The deviation popped out and miraculously unclipped from the rope? Which went sailing past to the ground aswell. finally getting down after messing around with the ropes. lol now! I found all the gear plus another piece he forgot? So it was well worth the abseil, then climbed the route again on top-rope...

Wonderful. Exiting sentry box is very scary and very committing with slings well below. Stayed direct with crack: tried not to bite down on the heart in my mouth! Fantastic.

Took the wall option from the sentry box - tough 4c climbing with so-so gear a few feet below, a great lead by Carmen. Next time we'll take a no 4 Camalot and stick to the crack! A great route, harder than it looks - miles harder than Innominate!

Tricky middle offwidth section. Fun though, did it with a slight smattering of rain. I think this is harder than its neighbour Innominate Crack.
