First time back on grit for a while and got my ass handed to me by this! Easy until the feet run out on the traverse and turn into greasy nothingness. The jams are actually underclings and the whole thing felt damp and slippy. Finally got onto the ledge on lead only to find my myself out of both large cams and motivation. Bailed and let Mark enjoy himself! Clean on second after a full 2 hours. Miserable!!

Climbed badly after 6 beers n 4 hours sleep. Nearly fell off. Reading other comments. I feel this is more like VS 5a and I have climbed much less scary HVS 5a. There is a temptation as it gets pumpy to climb thru with no further protection! My advice get some good gear in before the real crux as not really reverse-able!

Ugh. The Bamford poop-in-pants continued! Seconding Dad and Mick, who's giant hands jammed no problem. My skinny wrists were in up to the elbow, in what Dad called "the Veterinarian jam"! Easy start, moderate traverse, moving round the arete was tough. Unclipped a cam, panicked, re-clipped the cam and took :-( Just still so frightened of sideways swing falls, even on second. Last bit was a walk in the park, and Dad and Mick had struggled a bit. I can do it if it goes straight up! Not sure if this is type 2 or type 3 fun, but thought I was going to be sick.

Climbed myself into a nasty situation on this and nearly decked. Climbed the leftwards section easily, then reached the jamming crux. Got a cam in before starting the crux, and then struggled right on the good jams. Was enjoying it, I'm bad at jamming and was feeling good about how well it was going but felt too strenuous to stop and place gear. Got a high foot onto the ledge at the terminus of the crack and rocked over onto it hoping to find a stable stance and gear placements. There were neither, leaving me well above my gear in a tenuous position, off balance with only a bad sloper on the arete for my pumped right hand and no way to relieve it with my left. Too tired to get around the corner without falling (would have decked), unable to downclimb and too tired to wait for someone to setup a toprope. Only sensible option was to ask belayer to take in as much slack as possible and make controlled jump off onto a single cam. Ended up a few centimeters above the ground with my belayer higher up than me. Lessons to be learned here. Thanks Adrian for catching me...!

Reminiscent of Almscliff. I've never sworn so much, it was just obscene. Weigheted at 2/3rds into the crack then took my first lead fall after that leading into the crux section. It took everything I had but it still wasn't enough.

Found the crack heading right seriously hard work. Had a couple of rests to rethink strategy. Didn't enjoy this at all, these kind of routes are a definite weakness.

I tried to lead it, thought you're meant to go straight up the arete instead of traversing into the crack, so was climbing way too high and some silly moves later took a massive fall from the arete on a #1 cam.

My only fall of the day - gutted ! The crux on this route is hard to get right and even when I did I found it tenuous and a bit desperate getting round the corner. I had 2 falls, both times being tempted into going to high with my feet due to the undercut hand holds - stay low, jam and hope you get something for your feet as you make the move round the corner ;-)

I didn't really realise quite how 'jammy' it was going to be, nor how tenuous the foot holds would be when I needed them most. The jams felt solid enough (I still have most of my skin, so I must have been doing something right), but moving between them proved too hard and I ended up slumping onto my gear a couple of times. Quite frustrating, definately more jamming practice required!

Reaver2k 08/Sep/07 Lead rpt

Almost died on this! Ok, not quite but by far the hardest lead I have done! Had done before and was climbing well that day, pushing VS so decided I would give this one another shot! Everything was fine, up the easy starting holds and along the crack abit. 2 relatively bomber pieces of gear in, then for some reason started thinking irrationally! Started worrying about my Dads safety when he was seconding! Big mistake! Ended up on the quite blank part of the slab trying to fiddle in a nut! Very fustrating because I could feel my energy wasting away from my arms! Eventually got a piece in (took a long time, kept getting wrong gear) did a hard and switch on jams (wrong sequence I think) and quickly rushed right a couple of feet so I could get my leg up and feel abit more secure on an ACTUAL foothold! quickly slammed in another cam before going around the corner (in a very stenuous position). Got round the corner with relative ease and onto the nicely angled slab on Sandy crack! A thank god moment! Couldn't reach over the top of the chockstone so had to throw the screwgate on the sling over the top of it (which much failure again) then a quite strenuous but not too technical difficult topout! At the end I was fully pumped and realised my mistake, should have powered through the move without good footholds and got straight up onto the corner rather than trying to place gear in a strenous position to only save myself 1ft in a fall! Think I will be back AGAIN for another attempt at this, still not happy with myself but atleast I didn't fall!

Headpoint again, Frank preplaced gear. A brilliant one to check if any jamming skill had come to me! Something clicked abit on this I think, absolutely beautiful jams, tricky feet placements, only dimples I could find were very sandy nearing the end of the slab. Almost fell, slammed in about 3 very quick jams, a high foot, wrong sequence so wriggled round the corner onto the crack and awkwardly regained my balance. Crux was easier than Quien Sabe? in my opinion. Final moves quite a struggle also, but chockstone deffonately helps. Would be alot scarier if I wasnt just clipping quickdraws, especially the crux final moves of the curving crack onto the other wall. Ripped up hands, but hands were so numb from the cold it was hardly noticeable. Got to the top absolutely buzzing about the quality of the jams.

Found this tough and commiting with a lack of footholds at end of the traverse.
