Janker's End* VS 4c

Rockfax Description
Climb into a short groove and rock out onto the arete. Finish with a bold move up the slab. It is also possible (more devious but historically correct) to start from Janker's Crack, though the ropework can cause issues. © ROCKFAX

Headed up for Janker's Groove, backed off the entry to that and kept heading right to the arete, then managed to get off route on Janker's End. Weird climbing. Graded in my old (old) guide as HVD!

I liked it, fun traverse, big well protected rockover and then a nice slab - but i did put a runner in the finger slot on the left of the slab as i felt the arete a bit too bold, easy climbin on non positive holds with no gear !

Bit exposed up top so stepped left to use the helpfull pocket in the centre of the slab.

The rockover move on to the arete seems ultra strenous and hard for the grade for a short climber. And my leader felt the lack of protection a bit unreasonable for the grade. Its basically a solo.

Stupid climb. Scariest thing I've ever done. What's the point of setting yourself up with ridiculous rope drag, just to drag the rop up beyond protectability round the corner. Best to solo. Bottom bit nice though!
