Sure done this before... Whole slab needs a good brush down though.

Put first piece of gear in off route for protection which was a slight cheat.

new guide has it as HS 4a probably close to the truth!

bit grubby, but easy enough

in trainers, possibly a mistake as they dont do slightly polished smears very well...

not sure how you could place runners in the gully from the climb (not that i was leading), HS 4a in the new Rockfax with a bold symbol is much nearer the mark. Sandbag at HVD!! Very nice though.
