Started up Chequers Buttress as that's where James had put all the gear. The start as described looks unreasonably bold (and a bit hard) for HVS. Nearly fell off the top, which is probably E1 too.

Kind of an onsight. Ish. Got my hands at the top of the groove then stepped right...
There is a lovely technical move on the upper section

Lovely technical climbing, spicy start if you stick left and get off the ramp asap.

Have done harder E2s than this. The start is tricky and very bold and a fall would probably result in hitting the dorsal of Chequers Buttress. The second 5b crux on the upper section involves a long reach and is excellent. Worthwhile route but not one that I will be rushing to lead!

Very nice route, brilliant crux move to reach the final flake crack, two ways of doing the start, one easier and less bold than the other.

Got pretty scared on the start, so placed a cam mega fast and the rest was ok. Belayer confirmed the ground fall potential after the first section.

Got to be E1 the crux is desperate with gear placed low & will swing you into the ramp.

Seems pretty hard for HVS - definitely a grade harder than Chequers Buttress.
