[Via Dolorosa, 3 kb]32m. A long and wandering trip up the huge buttress. Start below a battered holly and climb very slippery rock (crux) to the roof. Escape out left passing the obstinate holly to ledges (possible stance) then climb to the huge roof. From the left edge of this climb up to runners then reach a flake on the wall of the gully, finish out right on the front of the buttress. <font color="red">The left-hand line on the topo is the seldom climbed indirect start (HS 4a) to this route. </font> © ROCKFAX

Thought it was fairly easy for VS 4c and found it much more fun (less scary!) than Valkyrie. A big choice of quality lines once you get past the holly, I went up on the right and then hand traversed across at mid height to belay on the ledge at the top left. Last pitch looks much harder than it is & is also very enjoyable, presuming you work out the holds!

A lovely evening. Vanessa was very pleased to do this, it has been on her hit-list for a while. She led the first pitch (now getting very polished) and I led the flake, not forgetting the finish up the face. I was a bit dismissive when this was upgraded from Severe, but with the polish it's starting to justify its VS 4c grade. A cracking climb, interesting and varied.

Not sure I agree with the guidebook "Best VS on grit" but it most certainly a fine route. Done in two pitches. Ian lead the first two, I lead the last one. Fantastic finish up the front of the buttress and sitting in the hyperbowl at the top. Take plenty of large nuts/cams to set up a belay.

Polished slippy slab start was certainly no easy way to start the day... but what a climb, single rope one pitch. Loved move under overhang with hand traverse after twin cracks, which is a worthwhile if harder variation. Blind flake traverse took me a while to pluck up courage, just so I could immediately proclaim 'It's easy when you actually do it.'
