Quiddity* HVS 5a

Rockfax Description
An impressive arete pitch. Fortunately there are more holds and runners than appearances suggest, though it is still bold! Small wires and a big reach both help. © ROCKFAX

Gear worthless to cam at 20ft. Given you start above 20ft drop this has chop potential. That said nice balance climbing e1 5a

Andy Peak 1 - Lead - 21/May/13

A little bold, but only where the climbing is easy. The tough bit was well protected and perhaps easier for tallies.
treg - Lead O/S - 13/Sep/12 with Nye

First decent pro is pretty high up.
Andrew Sloan - Lead O/S - 16/Aug/12 with Tim

Take the micro-kit! Better than it looks and quite absorbing.
