We did the HVS finish. Quite run out up at the top.

Very nice. Did the hvs finish which is great, but run-out.

An excellent route well worth doing. Very committing to start the traverse but it all works out when you do it!

The crux of knights move and still a grade easier...? very worthwhile.

deacondeacon 28/Jul/13 Lead O/S

Not a proper onsight as we had led Knights Move about 5 minutes before hand. Cool traverse (climbed over the tree as I was on a single rope and didn't want the second to have a nasty traverse.

Nice route! Good work Charley and Kev for not crying.

charley 26/Mar/12 Lead O/S

Nice climb. Spent ages faffing with the first bit of gear (bottom of the flake/groove), messing around with micro wires only to find a good hold and bomber looking wallnut placement on the next move. The traverse was nice and easy and I enjoyed the rock over move to get up and past the tree.

valentinesbabe 26/Mar/12 TR O/S

Charley's lead, Jack 2nd. Most awkward move was climbing over the bloody sapling :-/

Bit scary for the short and ginger.

Pretty easy, a bit delicate, probably takes the crux of Knights move in my opinion, plenty of gear all the way though.

Easy once you leave Knight's Move. Avoiding rope drag is fun though!
