Frightful Fred** VS 4c

Rockfax Description
26m. A wandering line though with some good and bold climbing. Take the chimney to ledges and a peg belay on the right (8m). Climb up and right then mantelshelf awkwardly onto a higher ledge by a groove. From a peg access the higher ledge on the right then continue up and right until an exit leftwards can be made. A right-hand exit is harder but contrived. © ROCKFAX

Felt bold for the grade, wouldn't trust the rusty pegs, some top end moves above dubious gear. The climb passes by a peregrine nest on the final ledge which is full of pigeon remains...

Should be HVS. A couple of 5a moves with thin gear. Well worthwhile though.
