Halo Left-hand HVS 5b

Rockfax Description
A sadly neglected line through the left edge of the bulges that cross the wall. Follow the groove trending right to the bulges then step left and climb steeply into a groove which leads rightwards again up to the top. The vegetation is winning. © ROCKFAX

This climb is in 5 logbooks, and on no wishlists.

Currently rather dirty with cobwebs and dry earth but definitely climbable. There is, as the description says, some vegetation around but it doesn't really get in the way. The loose rock is mostly confined to the easy upper reaches. You have to be careful but it's easy enough to protect yourself in the loosest sections. Not a classic route and the interest is rather confined to a short crux section where you move left but it's worth doing.

Has not been climbed in ages. Fine up to the steep wall on the left. The crack above this is full of mud and ivy with no decent gear of any note before the peg. Lots of loose stuff pushed off by the ivy. Peg looks OK but I didn't bother to try and climb up to find out
