Rockfax Description
Follow the right-hand crack. It gives good finger-jamming and all the difficulties are well protected. A good first VS, solid but safe and full of interest. © Rockfax

The finger crack was as scary as last time. However unlike last time where I had my 0 cam and a tiny nut which were referred to as "bomber" by an unhelpful passerby I had my size 1 cam and a size 5 nut, makes me wonder how "bomber" my gear was last time!

Didn't have a guide book, this looked pleasant but expected it to be simpler from the ground.

There is no way this is VS4c! HS4b at the most. Nice climb, with easy gear.

Enjoyed this. The layback might have been a bit sketchy if it weren't for the excellent high gear placed before taking it on.

Intended leading Ellis Eliminate, didn't fancy I could put gear in and hang on at the same time so continued up this instead which is no bad thing as it's a nice route and you're not going to hurt your self.

Mine and Kate's first VS lead! Kate led first (and it started raining heavily but she did it!), a friend abseiled and cleaned the route and then I led. Great first VS I'd recommend. I'm a very cautious and risk averse climber but even I managed to do it..

Definite finger/knuckle jam move, very solid, but I worried afterwards if I had slipped would I have left my knuckle behind ? Then this followed by laybacking on the arete and rocking over.

I didn't quite top out as there was a nice looking cave about 3 feet from the top which I went in and had a nice walk up to the belay stance.
