Limelight** HVS 5a

Rockfax Description
The finest pitch on the Hollywood Walls combines some hard climbing in intimidating positions, although with good protection. Start at the arete to the right of the descent ramp below a hanging corner.
Move up to below the hanging corner and, using a diagonal crack in the wall to its left, make a strenuous pull out to a small foot ledge on the arete. Step left and climb directly to the left-hand of two short corners. Climb the short technical corner to better holds and finish up the wall above. © ROCKFAX

Fierce start and technical in the middle. At the top, i felt this was the best route single pitch I had done this year.

Good climb but was pretty wet at the bottom making committing to the start moves feel serious. Once past there its all good.

The bottom crack seeps a bit but otherwise a top route with good pro and a challenging groove.
