Tu'Shae HVS 5a
[Mark Garland first ascent of Tu'Shae, 2 kb]Climbs the large obvious crack 10ft right of Meirionydd. Ascend the crack to a shallow roof and step over and slightly right (crux) follow up the broken crack to reach a ledge. Escape via a grassy ramp on the right. Soloed regularly by local climbers as far back as the mid 1970's

Led this after spending a couple of hours unsuccessfully working Meirionydd, fantastic route, marred slightly by the ledge in the upper section. Felt like solid 5a coming through/ traversing the roof but pretty safe. Top section runout with 2 ok micro wires and a cam to protect.

I have to say that I cant believe people have been putting this down as E1, or even HVS... climb Meirionnydd to the left, or The Plum, or The Fang, or Meshach and then tell me this is the same grade. No more than HS.. I purposely lead it and in my opinion its severe 4a/b

Didn't know what this was before getting on it, just liked the look of the lower section. HVS 5a at most I thought. Surprisingly Good considering the amount of shrubbery.

didn't know what it was at the time. Probably explains it!
Stopsy - 2nd O/S - 27/Nov/11 with b.west(hampshire)

Thought i had a first ascent there, carried on up the top section using crack next to Meirionydd, overlap at bottom is tricky but felt like VS 5a tae me.

The only climb of the day that I put my shoes on for. Nice route. Climbed after failing to get my fingers into the crack of Meirionydd.
