The Thorn*** HVS 5a
[The first pitch of The Thorn., 3 kb]48m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
One of the Peak's best limestone climbs and the classic of the crag. A superb central line, with a well-positioned crux. A pull on the peg of the crucial bulge lowers the grade to a solid VS.
1) 4b, 28m. From the ever-dry cave, climb the slabby right wall, right then left into the main groove, before easier climbing leads to threads (chains) under the huge overhangs.
2) 5a, 20m. Move out left and climb the short juggy rib to the bulges (several old pegs). Pull rapidly over to easier-angled ground in the groove above, continue to a belay in the big holly. © ROCKFAX

PeteWilson - 2nd O/S - 25/Sep/15 with Dave

First pitch. Easy but some runout sections. Crux felt hard after two days climbing on grit.
Jackwd - AltLd O/S - 20/Sep/15 with Charley Fell

Led P2! Brilliant route! When I got up to the crux and spotted the 3 pegs, was expecting it to be a real struggle but the holds are good & moves are straight-forward.

Mike505 - AltLd O/S - 20/Jun/15 with jmills94

lead p1 which is pretty straight forward. p2 has a couple of still moves but its obvious where they are going to be. Good holds are not far away at all but not much for your feet at the crux (climbing in near darkness probably didnt help this) Solid abseil at the top of the route.

Very nice. I did "Stagnation VS 4c" as first pitch. Steep abseil straight down from the belay of the 2.pitch (did it with 60 m doubles, 50 m doubles should be fine too). Good view on "The Beest", looks interesting.
