Hold your breath HVS 4c
[Ladye Bay, 3 kb]4m. A Tricky balance left hand arête ones approaching the top of the route traverse left onto the slab to finish. The climbing isnít actually that hard its given the grade because a fall from anywhere on the upper half of the route would be a ground fall to a pretty boulder landing 1 good cam lower down on the route but apart from that and a rubbish wire higher up the route there isnít any gear. The climb can be found on the main face on the left hand side of the headland from the footpaths entering the crag.

Pleasant little solo. Nice going out onto the face at the top.

Soloed in trainers exactly 2 years and one day after I made the FA. Looking back there is no way that this is HVS 4c more like HS 4a if I'm honest guess when I originally did it I somewhat lacked experience at route grading.

Fun to sit in :D you can also link it with the right hand wall by wrapping your left leg around the arrete and lowering yourself out.
