Felt like a VS to me, and not easy at that. Perhaps I missed something. Good gear, though - good Hex territory.

Sandbag, simple as that. Harder than half of the VS's I've done in the Peak. TR'd it when I was starting out, and glad I did. Still, fairly enjoyable climb.

Made the same mistake as many others: "this'll do as a nice warm-up", was the last climb of the day! Definitely HS 4b and a short strenuous one at that, worth 2 stars.

Thought... Severe, this will be a piss warm up. HOW WRONG! well worth doing but its a struggle at the grade. Deserves its 2 stars.

pottsworth 02/Dec/06 Lead O/S

Placed the first piece of gear then down climbed to rest due to getting mega pumped, then finished the route. Given HS on rockfax, seems fairer, certainly the hardest severe I've tried
