1. Surfacing 20; 2. Diving Deep 22; 3. Ducks On The Pond 21.
A: Probable line of pitch 1 of Velvet Green
B: Contrived original first pitch of Diving Deep

Kieran, I assume your new route climbs most of what was originally Velvet Green Variant (18), but then adds a new finish? Does it make this pitch much better?

I climbed Velvet Green Variant many years ago as it looked good and I thought it would be a worthwhile addition to the Selected Climbs guide. Unfortunately it didn't climb as well as I hoped which was why it didn't make the cut.

Simon, You are right. I think it makes it much better, though it's impossible to be objective after putting in the cleaning time. The old variant was good climbing as far as it went but it just fizzled out. It now goes where I originally intended to go, which was pretty well impossible without pre-cleaning.
I think Maureen liked it, though the crux past the first bolt was a bit reachy for her. Maybe talk to her and decide if it's worth doing.
