Gets VS in BMC guide, definately deserves to be as well, gear not as sparse as you think you just have to be creative

Bottled out of the step left on lead. Now kicking myself as it was pretty straightforward. 3rd man did the HVS 5a top and found it pretty hard pulling over

Rather underwhelming route, decidedly unsparkly!

Hmmm this is one shite route... probably the most unispiring climb the Roaches has to offer!
