Sport climbed on Iain's gear up to the start of the pumpy bit then placed the rest myself. Hard for the grade (wtf is a HVS ++) but not too bad as long as you don't try to empty your rack into the crag. You only really need two pieces on the harder top section and there's plenty of good positions to shake out; drop a knee and layback and your fine. It's a funny one though, I don't usually get anywhere near pumped at this grade but this always gives me a mild case of Popeye arms. One day Iain, one day!

First bit is easy enough and the crack is ok as far as the peg but after that it gets harder and harder! Got mega pumped so stopped placing gear and made a dash for the top. Thought i was coming off for a real swinger but to my relief i managed to get up it! First HVS lead :D

Strenuous route but great gear. Will do it again but try to be a bit bolder and faster on the first steep section of the crack.

As the guidebook states...very strenuous, but with plenty of gear. I burned out about 4 moves from end of hard climbing. Dale had to take over the lead. Much spinach required.

Mate took a sixty footer onto the peg. Bloody lucky, twisted the gate off his crab but held. I was 4 metres up in the air. It's easy, just use opposed pressure on the feet to get the weight off your arms and get some gear in.
