Hacklespur* HVS 5b

Rockfax Description
Millstone's answer to The Peapod is worth doing. Although it doesn't have the cachet of Curbar's classic, it is just as awkward. © ROCKFAX

A great climb if you like awkward gritstone thrashing. Looks okay from the ground, but the second half gets pretty nasty as the chimney determines to spit you out. Seconded after giving the lead to Tim. COuldn't commit which was annoying given there was sound gear above my head. Just couldn't see it relenting.

Harder than it first appeared, and more enjoyable. I successfully placed a BigBro 3 (green).

Took me a while to work out the crux. Nice route, even though it was a bit green at the top. Probably worth 1.5 stars!
