Claw Left-Hand** HVS 5b
42m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
Battle up the slippery and strenuous groove to where the angle eases, then move up right to the hanging chimney of The Claw. Climb up this awkwardly to a ledge on the left - possible stance and escape route to the left, or take the rather scruffy ramp rightwards to easy ground (4c). © ROCKFAX

I did p2. First pitch was very good. 2nd pitch was pleasant enough apart from the disintegrating, poorly protected finish. At least the climbing was easy there
