Argo** HVS 5a
38m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A thin and poorly protected start, but good climbing above, and the top pitch is stunning.
1) 5a, 16m. Climb over a fingery bulge, then move left to the main groove, which leads to a belay at the fault-line.
2) 4c, 22m. Pull left onto the side wall and climb up to a niche. Follow the right-hand crack above to the top. © ROCKFAX

Bold start! Had previously bouldered up the start twice, but never got as far as getting gear in.

Pitch 1 is nice. A little bold but the holds are all there and you reach the first wire fairly quickly.

5a start can be avoided easily. Crux is steepish and quite tricky at 4c.
