Little Capucin* HVS 5a

Rockfax Description
The lower wall is solid up to a slightly loose middle section below the break, which needs a little care. Overall good climbing at the grade. © ROCKFAX

Quite a serious undertaking with high deck out potential at the lower slabby type section! very loose in places but an outstanding line all the same.

Didn't particularly enjoy this: committing moves with little protection on the lower wall at the start & quite a lot of suspect-looking rock from then onwards
cem - Lead O/S - 12/May/12 with Graham Dolman

One big pitch, first very vegetated, lose and light on gear, top bit good.

A bit stiff for the grade
Ropeboy - Lead - 24/Jun/10

Climbed it (cleaning as we went). Abbed back down the route to clean and remove some dodgy rock. Now a much more pleasant proposition. Upper section is more solid, worthwhile route.
