Dave made a good job of the first pitch (first ascent by Menlove Edwards in 1953 - impressive). Not technically hard but awkward and requiring proper old school thrutching. I took the second pitch, beginning by going back down the perched block at the top of pitch one to the most natural line to traverse in on. The (2000) CC guide says there is an awkward move into the crack, but I didn't find anything hard here. But the top three metres of the crack were tough. A bit under-graded?

Luke led in one pitch. The first pitch, as described in the CC guide, is an unrelenting off-width. Not really requiring pure off-width techniques, but consistently awkward and perplexing. You then traverse into the next crack system to take you to the top. This is also meant to be the common ending of the adjacent VS. It's nails! Tenuous hand and fist jamming with bad feet lead you to a final, unavoidable narrow off-width, negotiated with left knee and arm bars. Truly brutal, bloody high in the grade. Great climb though!
