Named after the Council of Nicaea, where the nature of the Trinity was shaped theologically, NICAEA is also a classic example of Victorian hymn tune writing, notably with its solid harmonies and subtle chromaticism. Heber is careful to describe the Trinity without encroaching upon its mystery. This distinguishes it from most English texts that preceded it, especially those of Isaac Watts and Charles Wesley , who wrote in relatively short stanzas including CM , SM , and LM Along with the rhythm, the melody was masterfully constructed. The tune commences with a rising third, which could easily symbolize the Trinity, and continues with a chant-like character there are few leaps and many consecutively repeated notes.
Reginald Heber was born in Cheshire, England, in , with a precocity toward poetry. Four years later, he was writing numerous hymns while he was vicar of Hodnet, Shropshire. Most of his hymns, though, were not published until he passed away in This was iconoclastic at the time, since hymn singing was prohibited in Church of England liturgies. In contrast, the Methodist societies in the eighteenth century were known for their hymn singing, along with the dissenting churches that had been using the hymns of Isaac Watts for nearly one hundred years. Consequently, then, British hymnology scholar J.
Unfortunately, he failed to persuade church authorities within the Church of England to grant permission for hymn singing during Sunday services while he was alive. In , Reginald Heber died in British India from a stroke while bathing often referred to in India as coup de soleil , leaving an impressive legacy within Christianity.
That was because Heber was the Anglican bishop over all of British India from He worked tirelessly to build a training school for local clergy and traveled extensively around India preaching the gospel. Heber had continued to write a few hymns, although most of his corpus was written during his Hodnet vicarship. My first unquestionable e2. Lovely route, finished off the remenants of my hangover as well. Nice route with Craig. Came for the easy sport but all hangers have been removed so decided on this instead. Crack was wet which made for a desperate struggle!
Holy Holy Holy Sustained 5b rather than 5c? Nice climb, requiring commitment and some blind gear placing! Good fun. Stoked to have half flashed and half onsighted this one. Steve had a sterling effort but came down after about half way as the crack was minging wet and slimey as it had rained heavly the nght before. Managed to battle past the crux after using half my chalk in attempt to dry each hand hold. Sport climbing fitness kcked in and i learnt i can toe jam when the fear of a massve lob on tiny gear is loomng. Had to have word wth myself on more than one occasson on route - great layback adventure!
God, I hate slate! Tried this first but ended up bailing onto the E1 launch pad instead which is also worth a go. John went up and showed me how its done, if in doubt man up, which i regret not doing now Last route of a very successful day - did just before it got dark! Little cams, big steps! Used a new technique, layback. Enjoyed but found it tough due to lack of endurance. Got stuck on the face out left and had to do a hard pull to get back in the crack.
Run it out to the top to avoid mega pump! Belay at the top is interesting - a wobbly iron bar and a solid no. Will be coming back to redpoint. Route seamed to be cover in snot and slime but still got up, no chace is this e2. Soaking wet in the crack - bailed out to launching pad. Will come back after a fdry spell with Gwen Lancashire.
Abbed off due to Wales being in a heat wave but the crack still soaking. Gutted as I was really enjoying the climbing.
Hard laybacking with littlevic. Dont understand why this is E2, was well protected and nice easy flowing moves. Absolutely gorgeous laybacking climb with DanielGyi. Didn't feel hard enough to merit E2 or run out enough. Not really sure where the grade comes from. Good quality sustained climbing with Richard Apthorp. Had a look at it on the abseil down so not really on-sight. A good route with excellent gear, although some of the placements are quite blind. Silly slip off.
Some lovely tight laybacking moves around the middle section, with good gear. Felt hard as the layback section was soaking wet with callum.

Great laybacking and good holds if you can feel them out. Gear is great but didnt place too much. An awesome climb on hot hot slate! Good route. Hard bit in the middle.
Holy, Holy, Holy
Tryed to layback but to hard so i rested and worked out a better way. Lovely climbing. It were dry this time!! Glad i led it, alot more enjoyable in the dry. Seconded by Jess Christley with sarah joyce. Inside of the crack was wet and slimy for the middle 3rd the hard bit. Still felt ok though - we didnt think 5c. If dry, there is no way this would be worth E2 - I would venture to suggest it might get HVS in the peak where people climb more cracks, but definitely E1 max.
Perhaps not much even much harder than Altar Crack All that said, a good pitch and well worth doing. Lay-backing up the crack with lots of smearing with Heather, Matt, Tom. Tried to lead only got half way with Dan S.

First E2. Crack was wet. Loads of easy to place gear, lots places to rest. Led it twice. Couldn't be arsed day before, nice climbing. Nice Line. Nice enough but a tricky gear placement near the end. Another uber classic, smearing got a big scary with Mike West. This was harder than the first time i swear, so much for being fitter! Holy holy holy!! Couldn't pass the layback crux, gear didnt seem to seat well and feet sliding all over the place, definitly one to come back for. Climbed in the dark - wonderfully warm night considering the time of year. Took far too much gear as usual. Great route, although hard to psyche up to leave the good stance on Launching Pad.

First e2. I remember a strange confidence from climbing slate in jeans, placing lots of gear and lay-backing like I'd never lay-backed before.
