Very enjoyable climbing, good rock. very soft VS (at least for the tall).

with Felix
Andy Hardy 22/Mar Lead O/S
Jen Mason 22/Mar Lead O/S

Despite what some other climbers are saying, I found this route very tough - significantly harder than an average VS 4c. Perhaps tall climbers who excel at thuggy routes think differently? It felt closer to VS 5a to me. The gear is excellent for the hard moves at the top, though, so HVS is probably overstating it a bit.

Defo VS. Scott balked at curving crack but that went fine on second. Overhang-y bit is committing but definitely not HVS. VS 4c tops, nowhere near as hard as Austin's Variation.

with Ian, Scott Barnett
SuperLee1985 03/May/14 2nd O/S

VS 4C in Rockfax, seems about right. Not HVS, maybe only 4B. Nice, well protected climb with a trouble of tricky moves,one a high right step-up to the upper break and then the sequence required to gain the finishing crack.

The first time I tried to climb the final section to the left instead of through the parallel vertical cracks. It was much easier.

with Bird
Blake 19/May/13 Lead O/S

I agree, this can't be a HVS... tricky 2 moves, 1 getting on to the ledge, 2 the last move if taken direct. Loads of gear and a nice top out. The only thing I can think of is that when this was graded, it was done when it was very muddy/sandy - it seems to suffer with wash out from the sandy top. Even though, a well protected if a little tricky 1-2 moves doesn't warrant HVS in my book. I'm giving this VS as the classification on here makes no sense - hard vs IS HVS!

very height dependent. Second "well spaced but good" hold turned out to be a little too spaced for a shortarse. Faff ledge was good so could possibly have managed to work out an intermediate move but as daylight was fading fast decided to downclimb and traverse to nailsbane finsih while this was still feasible. another grudge match to return to! On t'other hand my two taller buddies copuld reach the damn holds from the faff ledge. hmph.

Climbed the easier finish - was it cheating to use that root in the top out?! May have to go back to finish the harder one and see if it deserves the hvs or not....

Quality route. Felt about gentle HVS, though a bit intimidating with the steep bit at the top. And certainly 5a if you stick to the route and the curving crack finish. Could see it being VS if you scamper off right along the ledge but that's not the route is it!

with Will
Wilbur 08/Mar/08 2nd O/S

Just about sneaks HVS for the slightly bulging top part (intimidating) and the moves up the curving crack to top-out..
