Cue** HVS 5b
[John Stringfellow on Cue!, 3 kb]22m.

Rockfax Description
Hard work but oddly appealing and popular too. Thrash up the slanting chimney-groove to reach a trough and possible stance. Hand-traverse out left below the overhang until a steep pull (good gear) gains the thin finishing crack - phew! © ROCKFAX

Tricky bit is to step over from the right and get through the overhang part. Gear very reachy. Low fun factor.

Maybe it was the time of day and the weather, but this route - full of midges, green as anything and less than positive on the move after the traverse - was one of my least favourite attempts to date.

Really rather good. Butch moves into the groove, then a rest which is diffuclt to leave and super moves at the top.
Jimbo C - Lead O/S - 03/Aug/12 with Chris, Gethin

Gudge - 2nd O/S - Aug/12 with Andrew Deacon

Ace! Hand traverse looked unfeasible for the lanky but went OK once committed to. Great finger locks in the vertical crack breaks.

Someone overcammed his gear at the overlap so had to hang on rope to get it out :o(
