Thought the bit to get onto the flake looked pretty easy from the ground and the top looked hard. Turns out I'd got it the wrong way round... Still VS though, and not a hard one either.
Mr Fuller - Lead O/S - 13/Jul/13 with Ally

Middle section is a bit tricky! Undoubtedly there are a few ways of doing it but mine was definitely wrong.

Both Mike (leading) and I found this very hard to get established on the flake. Very deceptive from below. Our monster cam protected the first moves. The slot is best left free of gear so that it can be properly used as a hand hold.
Steve Waters, Mynydd - 2nd - 17/May/10 with Mike Tempest

No idea why this is given HVS. It's very good, but pretty well protected...

much easier once i took the 2nd bit of gear out of the hand hold, holes in the shoes couldn't so easily be solved but good none the less

Don't get this HVS grade as it was massively easier than todays other routes (roof route, triglyph, every man's misery)

I know the BMC guiide says HVS 4c, but I can't imagine why. Well protected throughout, with plenty of places to rest. I did an HS 4c the next day which was both harder and less well protected!
