Fairly regulation climb until you come to finish......the mantelshelf/grovel onto the green ledge (check it's dry from above before you start?)

Used the blocks to get to the first ledge (seemed a bit eliminate not to use them) - then went up the arete. Very pumpy to protect the crux, but got some gear in, and then went for it - and everything was fine. Great little climb with some nice moves (a welcome change from jamming)

avoided the gully and the opposite wall, thought it standard VS 4c and well protected. Quite a nice route.

Last climb of the day. It looked really easy from the ground but found it tough. Did the direct start without using the blocks in the gully which wasn't too bad. The section in the middle was a bit reachy but the top crack was hard work.

with Ange, Geoff
valentinesbabe 20/Jun/10 2nd O/S

Charley's lead. We stood at the bottom looking up and thinking "VS4c??? Looks more like an easy HS...what's all the fuss about. Maybe you have to do the start without using any of the blocks? That's the only bit that could even remotely be a 4c...and to be honest, only then if you're short!" What a sandbag this was!!!! I got up to the top crack which just ran out and with tenuous footholds and a seriously tenuous slap I got up with with sheer limpet power and knees down!!! Tsk tsk! Pumped, OH YEAH!!!! Scared??? Double Yeah!!! That'll teach me not to rubbish Rockfax grades! :-)

8mts VS 4c This starts off with a ‘mantelshelf’ and finishes with a belly flop in a corner with nothing to hold on to except a tiny little flake way up high on the left, which one needs to dislocate ones left arm/shoulder to reach! Mike did on the third attempt, bringing back fond memories of Imogen‘s belly flop on a large boulder in Font earlier this year!
