after matt . can see why its good fodder for grade debate! surely it must be worth e1? hvs 5a is generally well protected isnt it?! stepping right above the crux and moving straight up the slab from there, deffo wouldnt argue with e1.

Chickened out and topped out left off route 2 moves from the top to no pockets for feet but a small crack gave assurance for hands. Long discussion with partner as whether I'd touch the ground from a fall. Also discussion on setting belay left of finish to protect second from a swing. Need to practice slabing to perform the easy moves confidently on lead

Lead the crux and onto the slab fine with no issues. Guess I was expecting more obvious features on the slab to pad up. Having only a couple of outings on grit, not really trusting smears fully, made a few nervous moves up the slab then decided Nope. Reversed the moves off the slab onto the nice stance . Paul tied off the rope to a tree then went round to the top and chucked down a rope. Then did the top, easily. ...Next time!

Beware the short. The rockover was just too far. Needed an intermediate move by smearing on hope and optimism on a dimple a bit closer/lower than the ledge. Somehow didn't fall off! Stepped through with my left heel and stood up. Top slab was a breeze after I realised my rock shoes were imbued with grippy magic!

Having looked at it a few times, glad to have done it. Not particularly difficult but keeps you on your toes. The crux move takes some thinking about but you're not far off the gear at that point. The upper section isn't particularly difficult, just well above the gear: so fairly comparable to sunset slab, which has no protection full stop but no real crux move. A head route.

For the final piece of gear before crux, initially I tried placing a purple DMM size 3.0 4cu. Placement didn't look completely terrible, but I wasn't able to get it very far in and it was getting close to over-cammed. I gave it a few hard tugs and it didn't move. Not completely satisfied I slightly readjusted it gave it another tug and it popped right out. In the end at the suggestion of my belayer I down climbed and retrieved my yellow DMM size 2.5 4cu which I had used as my first piece of gear, this went in deeper and looked bomb proof. Rest of the climb went fine, brilliant route. About half an hour later after having done another route I walked past the bottom of the route again, there was a group surrounding a man lying on a bouldering mat with scrapes and blood all over his legs. I asked if he was OK, he had apparently rested on the rope near the crux and all (!?) of his gear had ripped out. Though in good cheer he had hurt his foot and they were waiting for mountain rescue. Was very glad I had changed cams instead of staying with the marginal one.

Found the rockover nails, the slab feels 10 grades harder on lead, aimed for the nice block on the left so I think that's an easier finish, I'll take HVS

With hindsight, I shouldn't go soloing. Managed it pretty much fine up to the top slab for the finish, then decided I was a little high to be "padding up a slope like a house roof" so called for a top rope to be set up...

Did this on TR 3 years ago, felt more like onsite then a repeat ascent . Pleased I managed it okay without any problems. The crux felt straightforward with good gear although needed to give myself a good talking to on the top slab. Made sure that I stuck to right and didn't escape off to the left. Although technically it's easy climbing, I felt I could easily pop off it at one point. I've led quite a few HVS's in the past year (and a small handful of E1) and personally feel that this *just* warrants E1. Grade aside - I really enjoyed it....

Solo after rain, though it was dry, it wasn't. Top slab was scary as hell-like an ice rink. If there had been anyone else there I would've asked for a rope, sadly there wasn't so I had to go for it. Got lucky this time. As for the grade, in the dry it's HVS 5a- Solid 5a crux by protection, yes the top is run out but so are some VDiffs, it's just easy climbing.

Easy moves but still felt E1, even though climbed harder HVS in last few days. Just a mind game due to run out and knowledge that any gear in that pocket isn't really that bomber... If you don't worry about falling and don't understand placing your gear, well, ignorance is bliss I suppose and it probably won't feel scary! Very happy to have led and now never have to do so again!

Lead it half way and had to down climb it because i got scared. Really really balancy. Got a poor cam in that later fell out. A nut low down that wasn't brilliant. Didn't realise that you can get a bommer small nut in in the deep juggy hold up and left. the top was the scariest bit as had no actual holds - you just have to stem up and up on nothing really.

was planning on leading this but the rain & wind put me off which I'm kind of glad of. Didn't think the crux move was too difficult but think I would of shat myself just afterwards looking up and seeing the final slab. Unlike the guide book, I'm glad it's not 10 degrees steeper. Think it's a fantastic route - really, really enjoyed it. Might try and lead it next time (if it's dry and I grow a pair for the final slab)...

Bottom half is easy but struggled to protect myslef for the crux. Didn't trust the rock over so had to down climb. Repeated on top-rope and it's a different ball game, doesn't give it justice. Would love to lead again and grow some balls for the crux!

No surprises my a***, I was surprised when I got over the rockover and saw the state of that slab. My assertion: the further left you are on the top slab the nearer HVS it is. I was tempted right by a foothold and found myself looking at a very bold few metres. Felt like 5b slab climbing to me. One of my bolder leads.

HVS or E1? I don't really care, it was my first clean onsight at either level. Word of warning to the shorty's out there... the last piece of protection is a 4nut backed up with a cam on the left pocket, you will need to pull yourelf up to see what you are doing and place the gear correctly before making the crux move.

Placed cam in the horizontal break and got to the large pocket to find I need that same cam. Placed a number 4 nut (bomber), retrieved cam and added that. Climbed through and past the pocket to make a stupid mistake that lost my left foot and I was off for my longest lead fall. Pleased that nut and cam was a bomber. Reclimbed through the pocket and crux and had no issues with the upper run out. Topped out, belayed my second, and then reclimbed the route for good measure.

Beta consisted of reading Rockfax description (they have it as HVS 5a) and someone helpfully shouting out just before the crux move that a number 8 nut wil stay in the pocket. I pushed it to the back and waggled it about until it stuck. This was my first HVS. Previous day climbed my first VS, (first year climber started in August). Amazing experience that demonstrates just how sticky rock shoes are. I never felt for a moment that they would slip. The lack of handholds and reliance on pure balance on the unprotected upper section was simultaneously terrifying and exhilirating. Genuinely unmissable.

Crux for me was getting to the hole (still reasonable and safe to fall off) Don't remember how good the gear was but the rock-over isn't bad (I suck at rock-overs) and the top slab is a walk. Couldn't wait for my first E1 lead until I realised my guidebook was out of date. HVS seems right.

It is definitely HVS as it's far easier than Tody's Wall and Chequer's Buttress for instance, the one 5a move is next to gear and the top is a 4a/b slab (similar to sunset slab HVS 4b), good though, well worth ***

Led clean stepping left on top slab after various rescues and nightmares trying to climb direct up longer part of slab to the right. The big grade debater! I`d give HVS for former method, E1 for the latter (which i've since lead)
