Superb* HVS 5a

Rockfax Description
16m. Steep and imposing but not too difficult and only a little extravagantly named. Climb the groove until the arete to the left can be gained. Finish up this in a superb situation using the crack to the right as needed. © ROCKFAX

Really good, strenuous pulling out of the groove onto the arete and quite sustained above. A very photogenic position at the top.
