Cider* VS 5a
[Mike (over the top!) seconding Cider Apple HS 4a on Apple Buttress at Gardoms. Climb led by Steve., 2 kb]9m. The delicate right-hand arete of the wall is tricky, poorly protected and high in the grade! Starting by laybacking out of the pit on the right is a worthwhile HVS 5b. © ROCKFAX

Really nice, but it wouldn't like to try if gear would work cause of gear placement and the swing at the beginning ;)

I found this harder than Cydrax which gets HVS 5b, as did the other 2 people I was with.

Not much easier than Cydrax, and the hard move is a bit higher. Very nice moves.

somewhat harder than it looks from the ground, with an unprotected stiff rockover/mantel high up. HVS 5b easily.

backed off leading this at a high rockover then was shown how to do it in two other ways
petegruf - 2nd RP - 22/May/10 with brad j

Getting of the ground is hard, but the crux involves a very high (and very committing) rockover and the protection is hardly inspiring (a tiny cam might help), surely a strong contender for upgrading to HVS?
