Hades*** E3 5c
[The final moves on Hades E3 5c *** @ Gull Zawn, Guernsey, 2 kb]22m. The best pitch on the island apparently.
Follow the RW-trending start of Styx Trip to the PR, then climb the wall above via letterboxes to finish up a thin crack. Adequately protected on small wires and a friend 1.5. This is the route on the back cover of the Guidebook.
The peg has been there since before 1996 and is not really trustworthy, however it can be backed up by a small wire underneath and micros left and above.

Last route of the trip - quality climbing and well worth seeking out. About right at E3 5c. The gear is all there but sometimes small and/or blind. I'm going to have to log it as beta because I was third up on day and the chalk definitely helped with the sequence and much as I tried not to watch I couldn't help but get some information from the other leaders!

Nick's gear. Had a right faff at the top, just couldn't do the final move, traversed off and sat on the arete twice then did it once Nick said his hand was the other way up. . . Very nice.

Fantastic route with amazing holds in the upper half and some cool moves. I'm not up to leading it, but want to go for a clean ascent in the future.
