[Peak district '86. looks like a variation on the normal HVD route. no idea of actual grade, 2 kb]18m. Climb the awkward wide crack to the right-hand edge of the prominent circular cave, then move out right to finish up the face in a fine position. Well protected but quite hard work. © ROCKFAX

Very good and yet another VD vastly superior to Flying Buttress. Romping up the crack to something altogether more delicate for the traverse. Had to resort to 1 point of aid for this, using Friend as handhold, then was completely annoyed at myself afterwards as it immeadiatley became a breeze again.

Great route, stepping out from the cave is a touch disconcerting but rewarded by huge jugs. The crack isn't classic climbing but the rest is top notch.

Set off on lead, and discovered my lack of hexes or large cams made protection a little tricky! So threw a rope down from on top and did it. Nice - but traverse was really sketchy in such strong wind!
hcooper - 13/May/12 with Gerard Capes

Very windy which made topping out difficult. Strong winds made communication difficult with belay partner. Ended up with massive rope drag too. One to repeat in future.

Bailed into the cave and then couldn't get back on route. Good climbing up to that point and the best looks like its still to come. I've done the (excellent) very top bit before when climbing twin chimneys buttress The traverse left looks stiff even at HVD - almost certainly S4a if not harder. Good though.

Dad lead, first easily although abit shabby protection until half way up crack (no biggie) set up a bomber sling then was off. He struggled with the traverse, which were not entirely sure whether we did correctly! Easyish rockover on small holds and slopers 4b maybe 4c I reckon - I do not remember that when I lead it last time so I think we went wrong somewhere. I followed, doing alot of hand jamming at the top of the crack (brilliant for a beginner who just wants practice) then followed the same traverse move with difficulty - something wrong there - and finished up the top of the juggy flakes. No idea where the traverse should go.
