Second's Advance* HVS 5b

Rockfax Description
14m. The wall (with tricky mantelshelf) and the hanging crack above and right are altogether a pleasanter affair.
The route should move left into the chimney above the bulge. The direct finish shown on the topo is much harder. © ROCKFAX

Damp and dirty, traverse before off-width felt sketchy, and off-width was a huge battle. Reserve a large cam to protect the off-width section at top.

Nice route up to where the holds run out. Off-width finish and no belay are a shame.
