GeorgiePorgie1 1 Sep Lead rpt Great to come back to this two years after I seconded it and feel steady on it when it once felt proper desperate even on a second. Disagree with all the HVS 5a comments as it's defo 5b, albeit lower in the grade and arguably so as it's on a slab. I bet all the "it's easy" comments come from people that have been helping themselves with extra holds from the VS on the left....

PandaSUMC 21 Apr Sent O/S Bit of a highball, Robin made it look far smoother than it felt. Got halfway up, comitted to the second section and promptly shit my pants. The extra propulsion gave me just enough oomph to latch the final hold

bclifton 1 Sep, 2018 Lead O/S In my opinion this grade is way off. The gear is bomber and not really that low. The climbing is also really not bad. I don't think it is very different to the VS to the left. HVS 5a would be a better grade

Tom Redwood 12 May, 2018 Lead O/S If it wasn't an eliminate it would be nice enough, often feels silly risking yourself by avoiding nearby features though. I'd say with the use of a DMM offset and brass offset its more high end HVS as they felt bomber even if it would have been a ride from the top hard moves. Great second from Matt making it look like a VD and mantleing the end hard bit that I chickened out and used footwork on for once!

SuperLee1985 19 Mar, 2017 TR RP Decided to set up a top rope after doing gingerbread to have a go at some harder routes. Was sopping wet when I started up it, came off once at the start trying to stand in the starting hand holds but worked out some better beta second time and managed to get pretty close to the top, albeit strenuously and desperately. For some reason just below the top I failed to spot the two enormous crimps and gave up. I came back down let some others have ago and then tried again and got it clean (it had dried out a bit by then which helped too). Lower section was definitely the crux which is the bit without any gear. Now certain I'm no where near ready to be leading E1's.
