Led second pitch. Topo in guide for the first pitch is wrong. Climb is on left wall rather than the grove, and much harder than 4b, more like 5a! Second pitch a dream; good gear, good holds, and good climbing.

oscaig 03/Mar/14 AltLd O/S

Great fun climbing - 1st pitch pretty testing for 4b?

foostu4 24/Jan/14 Lead O/S

Brilliant moves throughout, the first groove is much better taken direct.

Sarp led the second pitch direct (5a variation).

sarpedon 25/Oct/13 AltLd O/S

Spectacular indeed. Pretty soft for an HVS.

saz_b 30/Dec/12 Lead O/S

Good moves and gear throughout. Linked p1 and p2 and did 5a variation on p2 as it was the cleanest line. No ab station at top, descended long gulley in rock shoes - ouch!

haydng 16/Nov/12 2nd O/S

Good lead by R. Did 5a variant, i.e. direct. Nice continuation pitch to Cannon Buttress.
