Wall Buttress* HVS 5a
[Wall Buttress, 3 kb]12m.

Rockfax Description
A traditional grovel. Sprint up the right-slanting layback, then swing right to the base of a wider section. Alternatively, take the jamming crack in the centre of the face - better. Improvise a way up the wide bit then step left for the easiest finish or go direct. © ROCKFAX

21 of 36 (Stanage 1989 VS Challenge). Worth the effort of bringing the "mega cam", bit of a struggle at the top.

My first HVS! I fell twice at the crux off width. Had a number 4 cam so was safe enough but pumped myself out trying to get gear in a little hight. Should have just gone for it. Well I got up it in the end! Was a struggle but safe and fun all the way

This was one tough mother. I managed to make it up to the wide crack but ran out of strength and ideas to get up it and had to be lowered down. Was kind of scary abing for the gear. I'll be back for this one!

Albachoss - Lead β - 31/Mar/14 with Andrew.W

On sumc spring trip '14. Tomas backed off after first crack. I finished. Spent a while with both hands and bothfeet jammed close to each other and wondering how to move.
MichaelGallimore - Lead O/S - 09/Mar/14 with tomas andreau

Got up to the traverse and decided to sack it off as what I assumed were the footholds were pretty green, one to be back for once I'm a bit more established at VS to try and make a serious break into HVS.

JamesRich - 2nd O/S - 10/Aug/13 with Rob stanfield, Jack Bradbrook

After my failure on "Goliath grove" was adamant about redeeming myself with an ascent of some tough looking hand jamming thing, this seemed to fit the bill aright. Loved the move at the top where you get the good holds then have to release your feet from the jams, pretty unique.
Quarryboy - Lead O/S - 10/Aug/13 with James Rich, Rob Stanfield

mtempest - 2nd - 09/Aug/13 with Steve Waters, Mynydd

Every type of jam deployed. Glad I had my Big Bertha cam protecting the crux moves from the top of the wide crack otherwise I would have bottled it or gone a long way had I fallen. HVS Hard 5a and pumpy. A great gritstone route nevertheless.

Did the right-hand start which felt pretty steady but the top offwidth and ledge below it was covered in green slime and unclimbable so we ran away. One to come back to on a drier day for sure.

fathobbit - 2nd - 13/Apr/13 with Mr. K

Good fun but brutal. Definitely HVS, as in Eastern Grit. Probably 5b too. Had to rest on gear for a minute before the traverse as my foot got jammed solid in the crack, painful to remove...

I got to the upper offwidth (it is for my tiny hands) and didn't have big enough gear even after being passed the biggest hex we had from below! I didn't fancy risking a wanger on a hastily placed cam! in the words of Arnie 'i'll be back', but with bigger gear and tougher fists!

First attempted lead above S!!! Got completely pumped trying the traverse. Had a good friend 2.5 in the crack, which ultimately I had to lower off. Ended seconding it. Looks nice but its a bugger!
